How To Start Your Business and Have a Life

For immediate Release

How To Start Your Business and Have a Life

12 December 2008

Information about special package “How To Start Your Business and Have a Life” put together by 10 Wellington businesses is coming to Wellington HR managers working through redundancies or anticipating redundancies early next year. This special package was initiated by Assia Salikhova, known as co-founder of NZ’s most accurate business database whoiswhere™ and Director of ASSIA & AX Advertising Ltd. She invited proactive business owners with over 100 years of combined business experience to come forward and help those interested in business as the next career step.

Most business owners in this group come from a successful corporate career and have already been through challenges of establishing and growing their own business. While current economic situation offers multitude of opportunities, Assia believes that now is the time when new business owners need even more support than ever. Even though there are many other organizations and government funded resources available, with anticipated more business start ups in the next 12 months, there will be need for more practical “how to” advice.

Offered as a package of 10 essential service providers it makes easier for a business yet-to be to get quality advice in 10 essential areas of business, including accounting, legal, bookkeeping, business planning, branding, marketing, sales, financial, insurance, career and business coaching. This one stop shop guarantees to propel businesses through key challenges of a start up phase.

Savvy business owners recognize the other value of this one stop package – it may be a tipping point for some to recognize that running their own business is not what they actually want or can do. Being a negative result, it will be a fantastic achievement for some individuals, and will hopefully save them years of their life and heaps of money which will otherwise be all spent on making something un-workable work.

“If we can assist even a small number of individuals who may have brilliant ideas, management skills and life experience but lack of street smart business knowledge to establish their business without repeating every mistake we’ve gone through, we will be very proud”, - says Assia.
