Why Do You Do It?

There’s only one exceptionally good reason for you to work in any business, have any career, work in a volunteer organisation or serve your community in some capacity – and that’s not money. Money is merely a resource. Something to be used as a means to an end.

I can only remember one individual I’ve ever coached for anything in business who ended up saying money was his sole motivation. He was dead inside.

Bullsbrook Business Expo Cancelled

Regretfully, we have cancelled the Bullsbrook Expo due to lack of exhibitor registrations.

Given the large investment of time, resources and energy in setting up, preparing for and participating in the Expo for both the Chamber and those exhibiting, I couldn’t justify running the Expo with the low numbers as I do not believe it would especially benefit anyone. This is an investment that all of the Exhibitors and attendees make and it has to be worth their while.

2019 – The Economic Year Ahead

On the overall economic front, it’s clear that W.A. is in a state of flux. While there is significant renewed investment in mining and talk about skills shortages, business growth is positive but on a slow growth curve. A recent CCIWA survey indicated mixed business confidence amongst CEOs and business owners around the state.

My own observations are that there is a renewed sense of vigour and positivity for the local economy. Many of the firms that simply rode the wave of the past boom while maintaining inferior strategy, business practices, services and product have simply vanished as they could not sustain themselves during the downturn. That has frequently left the stronger players in the market.
