This Thursday night join Dom Knight and myself on ABC Nightlife to discuss what tools you can use to start or improve your business and how can we encourage more people to have a go.
Last week the last Australian car making jobs finished and a survey of the Geelong Ford workers found only one percent were interested in starting a new business.
If you missed the spot, you can listen to the podcast through the Nightlife website.
Despite the reluctance to start new businesses it’s never been easier to do so with a range of tools making it simpler to run one. Tonight on the Nightlife we look at some of those tools and what we can do to encourage more people to have a go at running their own companies.
For the program, I’ve a compiled a list of tools businesses should be using. It certainly isn’t exhaustive or definitive and if you have any suggestions on better or newer tools, I’ll be happy to add them.
Some of the questions we cover on the program include;
- who ran the survey of motor industry workers?
- what were most of them going to do?
- so what sort of businesses can these workers go into?
- what programs are being offered to these workers?
- how has starting a business changed over the past twenty years?
- is the focus on tech startups intimidating people who might want to start a business?
- what are the basic tools every business should have?
- a few years ago social media was all the rage, does it matter any more?
- what’s the number one advice for anyone thinking of starting a business?
