Best in busi­ness to share tips of trade

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

BUSI­NESS THE Bel­mont Busi­ness En­ter­prise Cen­tre (BBEC) has em­barked on a new ven­ture to help en­trepreneurs.

It has started crowd fund­ing in or­der to pub­lish a book, 1001 Busi­ness Tips from 101 En­trepreneurs, which in­cludes tips and in­for­ma­tion from suc­cess­ful en­trepreneurs.

Charles Ry­der, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Vic­to­ria Park’s White Chalk Road, has al­ready put his hand up to share his tips.

The book aims to give new small busi­ness en­trepreneurs valu­able in­sights and prac­ti­cal tips into be­ing aware of the hur­dles they may need to over­come, and learn from those who have ex­pe­ri­enced the full spec­tre of busi­ness is­sues over many years.

Found­ing man­ager of BBEC Carol Han­lon said only three out of ev­ery 10 en­trepreneurs who start their own busi­ness re­main in busi­ness af­ter the first few years.

“We aim to do some­thing about it by pro­duc­ing a range of busi­ness tip books that can as­sist to re­duce the fall-out rates or bet­ter pre­pare those be­fore start­ing their busi­ness of the many is­sues to be faced and how oth-­mu­ni­ d443752 ers over­came these is­sues,” she said.

“It has also been iden­ti­fied that some 25 per cent of small busi­nesses have a turnover un­der $50,000, which high­lights an is­sue with en­trepreneurs that maybe they are fac­ing too many hur­dles and are not sure how to over­come these busi­ness prob­lems.”

All donors will re­ceive an eBook copy.
