Business Information Bulletins - "Common business questions and answers"


There are many, many business subjects, areas and topics written and discussed in all manner of magazines, articles, papers and in business seminars - by experts, scholars, done-it-for-years managers and self-professed gurus. 
How many times have you paid to attend a half-day seminar on 'marketing your business' or 'improving your cash-flow' or 'motivating your team for excellence' or 'doing business on the internet', and come away with copious notes and great intentions to actually implement what you have been told IS THE ANSWER to your business performance problems.

And how often have you got back to work to find pressing problems or a real panic situation you have to address IMMEDIATELY (or simply, you need to catch up on the work you couldn't do on your "half day at Business Genius P/L" ).

Sound familiar!  This happens frequently to small business owners who are seeking the answers to their business questions or problems.  The problem IS you can't get all, or most, of the answers from ONE SOURCE.



Our Business Information Bulletin service is aimed at providing instant, practical and usable approaches to many of the simple issues faced by small business owners every day.  These short topic, 'question and answer' approaches are NOT designed to be a lecture on a particular business discipline - but they do use common-sense business language and practical methods for approaching and solving business problems.

The idea for each topic is that the question is one which may arise (or already has) in your business.  We then address that question, providing methods and information we would use to solve the same problem.  Somebody else may have a different approach or answer - great, that's their view.  There is never only one way to solve a problem - the objective is to reach a viable solution!  The first idea may not work out exactly right - but if you don't try, you'll never know!
