There are two million small businesses in Australia. All of them started with big dreams. Maybe to grow a business, sell and retire or to buy a yacht and sail around the world, or a holiday home in Noosa for the family.
In the US, only 0.1 per cent of 28 million small businesses have annual incomes of more than $1 million. In Australia, this figure is a little higher. So what are the steps to breaking that magic million?
Having built three successful businesses with no venture capital and grown them to a million dollars within three years, here are my five steps to building a $1 million business.
Sometimes one of the important aspects to career success can be something intangible like how likeable you are.
That vague feeling of goodwill is often determined by how genuine you seem when interacting with others. One of the first steps to showing someone you sincerely care about what they’re saying is remembering what they say--especially their name.
According to a Dale Carnegie training course I took last year, the sweetest sound to anyone’s ear--no matter what language it’s in--is their name. Without nailing down this first step, it can be difficult to move forward in building a genuine professional or personal relationship.

Vacations are great, but they exact a price. You come back to such a pile of work that you wonder if going away was worthwhile.
The answer is probably yes, but even so, there are ways to make re-entry less traumatic.
1. Plan ahead.
Managing the post-vacation plunge starts before your vacation does. You may be tempted to pile on meetings and projects as soon as you get back to make up for lost time, but a better approach is to stagger the catch-up work over a longer period. At least don’t aim to do it all on the first day. Accept your limitations. A lot of stuff can wait.
