To what extent has the arts industry been impacted by COVID-19 and how long do you think it will take the industry to recover?
Over the past couple of years, bushfires, floods and COVID-19 have conspired to create a particularly difficult environment. And, while we’ve been blown away by the resilience shown by the small...

I'm not doing anything differently to what I have done in the past. We have ups and downs. Downs don't instantly mean depression it's just normal. I much prefer being out on site doing things than being in the office but at the same time it's nice to be able to get on top of things that have slipped down the To Do list.
The monthly networking steak nights with about 20 other guys helps too...
In 2016, the right to disconnect was legislated in France, obliging companies with more than 50 staff to negotiate, essentially to set out when workers were not supposed to send or answer emails and...
Hi Fellow SMEers, I have been out of the SavvySME space for a while but back now for good. First order of business for me is to try to add a reality aspect to this platform down here in Melbourne...
I'm curious what goes through your mind after you've achieved so much. How did you figure out what was next and what you were going to do with yourself?
Rather than the sale of my business, I made a lifestyle choice to start a business. Building up a business that I can work around my family was my lifestyle choice.
If you are a proactive and driven business owner – living in Melbourne - I want to meet you! I am traveling to Melbourne next week and I want to meet and say ‘Hi’ to as many of my SavvySME followers...
A great post and a great idea! I would enjoy catching up over a coffee and taking time to discuss possible synergies. Tuesday of next week would suit me and I am happy to meet wherever suits you.
In addition to my SSME profile you can find me on www.wardourcapital.com or LinkedIn.
I would avoid all non-essential debt. Debt strangles your cash flow and makes it harder to live the life of your dreams. Focus your money on experiences not things. The experiences you'll remember. The things you'll use a few times and forget or get rid of them.
Do you have a repeatable daily schedule or do you approach every day as something new? Do you spend your morning doing important tasks or do you prefer to do them in the afternoon? How much sleep are...
I like to have a routine day to day, but it's hard getting into a routine. I don't sleep much. ~5hours/day. I should sleep more but I like to get up early, get some exercise in, sort out the important emails and prioritise calendar tasks for the day. Ideally, I'll do the tasks that require significant thought early on in the day and do less cerebral work later on as I lose energy, but that doesn't always happen.
Networking - meet and greet? Informational? Debates? Guest speakers?
Yee, I like what everyone else has said. I would like to contribute another line of thought borne out of a recent experience.
Last week I went to an entrepreneurs meetup. There were 12 of us that met for a meal at a local cafe. I found this a really stimulating environment in that I got to connect with the four people I was seated next to on a much deeper level than I normally would have at a meet and greet. It felt way more relaxed and authentic.
More food for thought. pun intended ;-)
