We all know of the extremely low percentage of women on Boards and in Chairman positions in the top companies in Australia, and if you start to compare Australia’s percentages with…

This addition focuses on Pets, Children and Green Franchises, which are all interesting topics considering that in business if you can avoid it they say you should never work with animals and children, but these topics are more business orientated for business owners than people realize. The reason for this is that one of the main motivations for people deciding to start their own business is to spend more time and to have greater flexibility with their children (I don’t think the pets got as big a mention!) Whilst I was working full time, before…

Scientists say that the male brain is not fully developed until 27, so it seems to me that we need to hire more young women in senior roles, as a woman’s brain is emotionally…
