Starting or buying abusiness necessitates risk, research, passion and planning.  Just like a game of chess, to succeedyou need to make the right opening moves.

The harsh reality is thatenthusiasm, money, talent or a great idea is not enough to guarantee success inbusiness.

The business evaluation andestablishment phases can be periods of great anxiety due to a combination ofexcitement, uncertainty and financial risk.  Make no mistake, the risks are real as the latest figures fromthe Australian Bureau of Statistics suggest that 42% of new businesses won't bearound in 3 years time. Even though franchising is considered to be the mostsuccessful form of small business, a 2008 study indicates:

  • Only 81% of franchisees are profitable
  • 58% of franchisees generate a profit of less than $50,000 per annum
  • 3% of franchisees generate a loss of more than $50,000

The small business journeycan be both challenging and rewarding and we are here to guide and support you.Having previously assisted so many clients in your situation we would like youto benefit from our experience and help you make the right opening moves.
