    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Mark and I own a Security Company which is located on the Central Coast in New South Wales.

    Although we would not be classed as either a solo or micro business, we are a family owned business with 3 years business experience. My wife and my daughter (we have 5 kids) run the business.

    My reason for joining was because over the past 12 months I have been regularly dropping in and reading the posts and recognise that we have also experienced the same problems and the feedback given by other members has been invaluable to me and my business.

    Therefore I thought it only proper to finally become a part of this great forum and hopefully provide some helpful information as well.

    Hey thanks for the welcome.

    I hope no one mistook my comment of 3 years in business…what I meant was that I only have 3 years in business and therefore stumble on a regular basis, hence this site is a great resource for learning for me.

    Hi Mark and welcome. I don’t believe there’s any embarrassment or discomfort in being in business for only a short time. We all bring life experience to our roles, and every business takes time to become established. I think three years is a pretty good length of time to get a handle on your industry and to establish a decent client base.

    With five kids, you must certainly be a man to be relied upon for commitment to the greater good!! :)

    Hope you enjoy participating here.

    Thanks again for everybody’s warm welcome.

    Since being in business I’ve realised I’m not the only one doing it tough, we all experience the same issues and hurdles.

    The advantage with a forum like this is we may be able to avoid some of those issues and hurdles…or at least plan for them.

    P.S. Hi Tarnia…there’s no escaping you is there :-).
