Your Business Angels - Blog
The very first thing I hear from any client (and I mean each client) is when I challenge them about how they write quotes and how to collect money, I hear the same. “That’s not how it happens in our Industry.” And my least favourite and one I hate the most. “My clients won’t like […]
Protect Your Business Laptop Or Computer
A business computer should be just that –apart from what you do for business, it should not be used for anything else. Just what you need, emails, bank accounts, writing quotes etc., looking up industry news, but nothing else. Other stuff, other computers (that should never have business stuff on it, different emails etc.) It’s […]
Business In Tough Time
Part One – The cost of a lawyer pails into insignificance if a risk is averted.

Throwing money at a tax debt isn’t a strategy; it’s just plain stupid. A tax debt says there is a problem here; get that fixed first
Our company has spent years negotiating with the ATO. If they hear a story to be reasonable and they think there is a plan in place – then they give time. (If they don’t phone back in and talk to a different case manager) Tax debt doesn’t mean a big rush to an insolvency firm […]
Where is the most dangerous place to live on earth? Anyone for a 6-day tour of Mogadishu?
I’m trying to tie in my cleaner, a trip to Mogadishu and comments about danger here in Australia. To start with, my cleaner didn’t come today because she said I didn’t pay her – which is true because I didn’t, but her invoice didn’t reach me – could be a lame excuse, but I didn’t see it. […]

If you haven’t arranged to pay down debt or do something else (with Our Help), you can now be punished by having your credit rating blown – and that could […]
“Everything has gone through the roof.”
Speaking with a client who runs several food outlets in SydneySpeaking Now is a time to be sensible. Foodstuff prices are rising, and in our conversation yesterday, we also talked about chicken, beef, and the lack of lettuces from the marketplace. We also talked about price rises that the market will stand. Having been hammered […]
Its business as usual
A big round of uncertainty, and there you are our economy. So what do we tell Your Business Angels clients. Australia’s newest Federal Treasurer, Jim Chalmers, is putting a spotlight on the fiscal situation he’s just inherited from the Morrison government. They all do it.

Changing gear, making changes its time
It’s been a fantastic week where I have almost finished a book called “Still Life” by Sarah Winman. In this book, our “English” characters live most of their life in Florence between the 1950s and 1970s. This is a book for a soul in need of joy. I have found myself looking up many of […]
