Who would think it is pleasing to use Tax as a Growth Indicator?
This story from one of my charges (Julie Demczuk of www.exclusivepmg.com.au) just this week, got to love a share such as this:
I’m sitting in my office on my own thinking about when I first started the business.
I remember saying to my bookkeeper I can’t wait until I start paying GST. I was so excited when my first GST bill was $6.
After three years my GST bill for the last quarter is $5,668.
What an amazing difference.
What an amazing difference indeed! Whilst I haven’t contributed directly to her growth numbers, she is one the amazing number of Women Business Owners who are building their business as an asset, ready to be saleable when the time comes (which may be right round the corner!)
So very proud of this entrepreneurial mother.
Just think how well off the new owner of a business like this will be. Not only is the thing well-established, if $5000+ of GST is being paid quarterly, then the revenue has to reflect same. Much more palatable when compared to waiting for revenue as a start-up… Interested in knowing more? Please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some would say “why?”, others, “why not?”
Some are born to start, build and hold for as long as it takes.
Some are born to start, build and pass the baton on.
Which one are you?
Here’s the background…
A driven and caring entrepreneurial mother, who wanted to buy something specific in Australia for her child, couldn’t find what she was looking for. So she took it upon herself to rectify that problem.
To her credit, she morphed into a woman business owner (during her long-service leave break) and has turned this need into the most delightful shop, not only addressing what she needed to at the time but also making many, many more children happy, very happy since.
All hail to her…
I know, there’ll be a number of you thinking “I’ve done the same thing, what’s the big deal?” Are you now the leader in your field? Do you have the major retailers sending people to you? Are you now doing close to 7-figure turnover? Have you built your Mother of a Business into an Asset, ready to take to the market?
if not, there’s the difference…
Indeedy, it does!
The key point I’d like to point out in this fine article is this:
Becoming an Entrepreneur does not require
any shifts in corporate culture.
In fact, becoming a Business Owner does not require changing any societal norms at all. It does require however a distinct shift in your own internal thinking in combination with your family’s particular circumstances.
So… why not be opportunistic and bold in 2012, and become a “3%” member? (refer last post)
You can always tap into the entrepreneurial mothers group if you need support…
As Viv has discovered, there’s a lot more to being a successful Mother and building a Mother of a Business than just dreaming about it every day. It’s about behaving in a manner which builds a genuine business. It’s about having the confidence to do whatever you dream of achieving. And most of all it’s about Mothering as you want PLUS earn what you need to earn (and a whole lot more!).
Viv McDonald is going places with
“The Web of Wheels”
So much so, she featured on p21 of the recent Green Guide in The Age newspaper.
Viv came to join my Mothers Group after previous attempts at really firing up The Web on Wheels. It would appear that this time she has done just that! Congratulations.
the entrepreneurial mother® Mothers Group has been developed in response to an overwhelming number of requests asking me to share my knowledge. However the majority wanted more than just help. They wanted to transform their Mother of a Business, they wanted to start achieving. And they wanted real backing to do it. Not simple once off help, not just electronic help but live and timely ongoing structured interactive support.
