Bendigo proudly announcing the Manningham 500 Project

Unleash the Power of Your Business – an initiative bought to you by the Bendigo Community Bank® (Doncaster East and Templestowe Village Branches), Manningham Council and Stefan Kazakis

Many business owners we talk to have had it up to their back teeth with working too hard and just never getting ahead.  We know they’re great business owners, but they just can’t seem to get the balance right between working the right hours, having the right team and making a profit.

It’s like they’re stuck on the treadmill and can’t get off.

Why is it that some business owners are making a fortune, while others are starving?  What is the secret to going from famine to feast?  It’s pretty simple, the guys that are starving, are STUCK in their business either doing all the work, or just fixing all the problems ... some of them are working much harder than their fellow business owners, and for ridiculously long hours, while the successful ones are busy working on their business.

Finally there is a solution.  The secret to running a great small business is to create a business that works for you rather than you being a slave to it.  And the good news is there is a simple process you can follow to get your business on track again.

The Bendigo Community Bank®, Manningham City Council and Stefan Kazakis, a globally acclaimed business coach, are launching the Manningham 500 Project.

So what is the Manningham 500 Project?

We have come together to reach out to 500 local business owners who want to take their business to the next level and WIN in 2014.  There are currently over 21,000 registered businesses in the Manningham area – and we are aiming to help 500 this year – so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.

So how are we going to be able to help you?

We are inviting you to attend a workshop Unleash the Power of Your Business.  This workshop is designed for business owners, particularly those who operate in retail, service and trade environments, the workshop will focus on immediate improvements in your bottom line profit, getting rid of your stress and getting back your time.
