Story & Vivienne Pearson

It’s well known that over 90 per cent of businesses fail in the first two years. Though figures for 2020 aren’t yet available, it would not be surprising if this pandemic-filled year sees that figure go even higher.

One concrete step any business owner can take during 2021 to help secure their future is to seek advice and support. ‘Yeah, sure’, I hear you say. ‘How can I afford business coaching if my business is struggling, or I haven’t even launched yet?’

Enter Build Grow Run, a government funded Entrepreneurship Facilitation service, where expert business and marketing advice is available for – wait for it – no cost.

Helped over 300 businesses

In their first two years of operation, Phil Daly (who will be well known to BayFM listeners from his show Byron Business) and Ellie Corley (who loves nothing better than using her marketing and communications experience to help entrepreneurs succeed), have helped over 300 local businesses.

Ten of those businesses are featured in a recently launched eBook.

Each owner shares their business journey, the outcomes of their contact with Build Grow Run, and their advice to others.

From Knox & Aya’s dairy-free indulgence to Underwater’s oceanic themed business, the book covers all stages of business development, from ‘I have an idea’ to decades of experience.

Build Grow Run can offer businesses support and coaching throughout the Byron Shire as well as south to Lennox, north to Tweed and inland to Murwillumbah.
