My background is as a business owner, business broker and business owner mentor and I put all that experience together here to benefit other business owners.

There's a saying in the computer industry "garbage in, garbage out". In any business it's critical to know your numbers. Both financial and non financial.

When it comes to selling the business, the data needs to be clean, accurate and up to date. In this chat with "bookbuster" Helen Kelly we discuss how a good bookkeeper can make things easier for the business owner and even train the business owner to "know their numbers".

Business Owners Board were very privileged to have John Wood, founder of National Lifestyle Villages in Western Australia, as our guest presenter. John’s first step in his entrepreneurial journey was bedding. He created a business that became a national brand and was awarded the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Unfortunately, his business came crashing down and he had to re-invent himself and start again. In 1999 he established National Lifestyle Villages with an opportunity to purchase and rezone some land in Perth’s northern suburbs, with everyone saying, “It couldn’t be done,” but he found a way to make it happen. He has since sold that business. John Wood provides a fascinating story of success, failures, learnings, laughter, parables and entertainment. In this bobCast podCast he gives 20 minutes of learnings and things we can all use in our businesses.
