BNET Video “The Venture”: The Ideal Workplace

The Ideal WorkplaceWhat’s your ideal workplace? Whether you’re just starting out in business or are already an established entrepreneur, your workspace plays a huge part in your productivity and ability to reach your goals. It pains me when I see people trying to work from their dining room table or a corner of their lounge room. If you are serious about your business, you need a dedicated space that’s designed to help you succeed.

Sure, after we all read The Four-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss, we had dreams of working remotely from cafes, planes, trains and automobiles. That’s fine too – but in that situation you also need the right tools to help you operate efficiently.

I was thrilled to be asked to be on this panel with Suzi Dafnis and Robert Gerrish for BNET’s new video show “The Venture”. Suzi is the community director of the Australian Businesswomen’s Network and Robert is the founder of the small business community, Flying Solo. We talk about the ideal workplace for business owners – and you get a sneak peek at what ours look like!
