This week, I received the news that I’m a finalist in the Smarter Business Ideas Top Blogger competition. Needless to say, I’m thrilled at being included as one of the top 25 small business bloggers in Australia.
I’ve been reading the blogs of some of the finalists for years – is it’s wonderful to be in such great company.
There are 2 categories:
1. People’s Choice (determined by votes) and
2. Overall Winner (as nominated by the magazine and online editors).
If you have a moment to vote, I’d be grateful – thanks!

I just love blogging about small business and startup life. It’s an area I’ve been passionate about forever. I know this may be hard to believe – but it’s the truth. And I know that this may reveal unparalleled levels of geekdom but … I guess that’s just me! When I was little, my mother used to bring The Daily Mirror (a Sydney newspaper that was around at the time) home on the train.
When she got home, I used to turn to page 13 (which was the kids’ page) and … believe it or not … the small business pages. And I was only about 10 years old! There was just something about people being able to create their own destiny, and bring their own ideas to life, that captured my imagination from an early age.
That fascination has not worn off. And I still love reading about entrepreneurs and gaining an insight into the minds of other business owners. Through this blog, I try to share ideas and, importantly, anything I’ve learnt that might be able to help other business owners. I hope you enjoy it!
