Small Business: Keeping it interesting!

The great thing about this stage of business is that I get so much pleasure from every new development. This week my business cards arrived. So exciting!!! Next time you meet me ask for one – they look and feel great. Thanks to my brother Cooper at The Single Desk for the super design and Pink Gecko for the excellent job printing them, both at a very reasonable price too!

I like to promote other small businesses as I think small business is a fantastic thing. Hope Connolly, from Pink Gecko, mentions that there is so much more to running a business than her just being a great designer. I think that is why this is the first job I’ve ever had that I have not got bored in. Here’s a brief list of the things I’ve been involved in so far, and Stacey College hasn’t even celebrated it’s first birthday yet.


Planning and development

Website design and maintenance


Social media


Accounts and taxation

Financial Forecasting

Designing marketing materials

Liasing with: my business partner, government departments, agents, potential students, graphic designers, potential staff, insurance brokers, teaching resource salespeople, community facility authorities, advertising agents, banking staff…

It’s just the beginning and I’m having a great time!

    Thank you so much for mentioning us in your Blog Kathy. Oh yes, so much more to running a business than being good at what you do. Reading lots of books, or listening to audio books have helped 🙂
