Tak­ing care of busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - TV GUIDE -

mum who ended up home­less.

Un­der the guid­ance of Creel and his team, the would-be en­trepreneurs have eight weeks to cre­ate the mak­ings of a suc­cess­ful startup busi­ness.

Un­like many com­mer­cial re­al­ity shows, here the fo­cus is on per­sonal growth and en­cour­ag­ing the in­di­vid­u­als in­volved to work as a team, pol­ish their ideas and fur­ther ful­fil their po­ten­tial.

And while it works to bol­ster the self es­teem of the par­tic­i­pants, it does not sug­ar­coat the harsh re­al­i­ties of mar­ket­ing and busi­ness.

It is also a sober­ing look at the dis­crim­i­na­tion many ev­ery­day Aus­tralians face while job hunt­ing and in the work­place, with the first episode alone show­ing the per­sonal im­pact not be­ing able to find work can have on peo­ple, es­pe­cially those who are part of a mi­nor­ity group or marginalised by so­ci­ety.

If you want to catch up, ear­lier episodes of this pro­gram are avail­able on SBS On De­mand.
