Skilled at Business: All you need to know
What makes Skilled at Business the go to choice for smart business owners?
We are business people, not bankers or bureaucrats
We have over 50 years of combined business ownership. We’ve been involved in planning, implementing, mentoring & troubleshooting over 60 businesses.
Skilled at Business.... has also assisted many business owners that have been struggling to either help them implement turn around strategies or exit the business with respect and hope for the future.

Governments and bureaucrats are telling us how to run our businesses which seems to make their jobs easier, not ours.
We are all about making it easier for you, by showing what saves time, what are the quick and easy tools to monitor your business performance and how to minimise the time spent on humdrum boring (but necessary) business tasks.
It's about freeing up your valuable time by developing your skills and improving your business growth potential.
Do you want Australian business advice? Do you want this advice to be factual, relevant, reliable and without political spin? What about how the information is presented, no shame, no ads, no distractions, no bull?
Skilled at Business is that and much more. We are about people, you and I. It is also about the why, why is it important to feel you're being heard, that someone actually cares about you, your success, your achievements.
That's why Skilled at Business has gone to so much effort in presenting its modules in an approachable, logical, and directed way. It is as if we are alongside you, telling it as it is from a business person's perspective. Hopefully you will even enjoy our humour.
Wouldn't you love to have an experienced business person walking along side you on your business journey?
That's why we developed Skilled at Business, because we had to learn from tripping, falling, stumbling over every business mistake you can name, but from there we are now here along side you, guiding, explaining, demonstrating and talking to you, and sometimes even saying "we told you so".
To question a wise man is the beginning of wisdom. Proverb
Lack of experience is the biggest killer of small businesses.
We are passionate about passing on to you business life lived wisdom from experienced small business people so you can manage problems out of your business, avoid the common mistakes and put a wise head on inexperienced shoulders.
We are passionate about helping you understand the advantages and disadvantages of different ways of operating your own business. Ensuring you are prepared, planned and pro-active.
This understanding and knowledge is what empowers you to tailor how your business operates and how to achieve your dreams.
Skilled at Business showed me the importance of understanding what my operational costs were, how my wages were affecting my bottom line, was I making a profit or was I doing this just for sh#ts and giggles...

From mistakes we gain experience and from experience we gain wisdom. Surviving the mistakes is the tricky bit.
Skilled at Business passes down the wisdon to develop a foundation template (or subscription) for you, a foundation on which your business can confidently grow.
"I chose the Dream Catcher just to get a feel about the company and what they offer. It’s so easy to use, I won’t be needing to search for extra information elsewhere. I have now upgraded to the next subscription to skill up before the next step…startup (OMG)".

Australian content for Australian small businesses
We are not here to solve the world's problems, we're here simply to help you.
Each subscription module is designed to give you enough time to up-skill yourself and troubleshoot your problems, i.e. get in, learn, get out and fix up.
Our plan is that by the end of your subscription, you should be the master of your own destiny and with the content and resources available to you, be able to fly solo.
However, stay tuned because we are not standing still! Skilled at Business is constantly improving, upgrading and adding new content. We will soon be making our advanced financial tools available for you to keep forever.
We not only include the exceptional content and business life lived wisdom but also the resources you need for the topic. Links, documents, resources, worksheets and tutorials as required.
Imagine the time you will save not having to troll the internet or books trying to find exactly what you need?
Have you ever heard the saying, "finding information on the internet is like drinking from a fire hydrant"?
OH OK, so we can't exactly be with you in person but with the amount of blood sweat and tears we have put into producing Skilled at Business, it's certainly the next best thing.
We know - and our mentoring feedback confirms it - you want relevant, accurate and authentic Australian business support presented in a manner that is easy to digest, easy to implement and which delivers real results for you and your business.
We just happen to have also made it surprisingly cost effective.
