What do a bathroom renovator, dip maker, skin care service, krissini maker and photographer have in common?
They all came to the Margaret River Morning Biz Q&A session! Thanks to Noa Ercoreca, Michelle Troop, Elisa Derossi, and Michelle and Brendon Munnich for being part of the session.
Lots of conversation flowed around promotions, the positives and not so positives of diversification, and Amazon being used as a case study for success.
You too can be a part of this for 2019!
The Morning Biz Q&A sessions have been a big hit over the summer months at Busselton and Margaret River. Small business owners are encouraged to bring a question and put it to business Advisor Sana Turnock to answer.
Seeds of Collaboration: A Morning Biz session at Margaret River
“So far, I have been able to answer all the questions put forward to me, but I have always said that if I am not able to do so, I will do the research and get back to the person who asked the question,” Sana said.
"What I thoroughly enjoy is hearing everyone’s input.”
Sana has noticed a quiet flourishing start to take place in these environments. Business owners who may be new to the business arena, or who are shy at contributing, are opening up.
‘’I love seeing the seeds of collaboration start to take place in these spaces,” Sana said.
“You never know who will attend and what kind of mix the table will have. People walk away with new ideas to ponder, potential collaborations, marketing strategies to work on, as well as feeling motivated by knowing that they aren’t the only one doing it on their own.’’
Photographer Michelle Troop, who attended one of the Margaret River sessions, sums it up beautifully.
“The free-flowing conversations are where the gems are. These Q&A Morning Biz sessions are where people feel safe enough to express ideas and listen to others,” she said.
