What do you think is more important.. maintaining my blog or an adventure of a lifetime?

Seeing this blog hasn’t been updated for some time, you know I chose the adventure. And that is what I want to share with you now.

A new business concept has been incubating in my mind for several years. It has finally come to a stage where I am ready to build it and launch a new business venture. This is the adventure I have been on for the last number of months and in turn neglected by blog.

It has been a while since I last started a new business and I had almost forgotten the thrill and excitement of a startup. And when you have a passion for small business and the new venture is about helping and supporting the success of other small businesses for me it is even more exhilarating.

I have been working on building the “Business BOOST Centre”. Yes it has been a difficult balancing act with the demands and requirements of an operational business (furnituredirect.com.au), a young family with sport and school commitments and working on BOOST Centre. But it has been thoroughly rewarding.

When you follow your passion you are somehow re-energized and are able to achieve amazing feats especially in balancing and juggling.

So hang around and you’ll hear lots more about Business BOOST Centre as its reaching a stage where we are almost ready to launch. And if you really want to know more before launch send us a note to info@boostcentre.com.au and we’ll send you more about BOOST Centre.
