Australian Home Based Business Awards

PRESS RELEASE August 15, 2008

Finalists from three states including Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland were presented with awards at the Australian Home Based Business Awards ceremony held in August during the Victorian Small Business Expo.

Victorian Minister for Small Business the Hon. Joe Helper, MP, presented the Australian Home Based Business of the Year Award to China Direct’s Lindy Chan of Queensland, who was also the category winner for Business Services.

The awards attracted a diverse representation of the home-based business sector- an industry on the rise with more than 67 per cent of small businesses based in the home.

The best-performed businesses in the areas of merchandising, business services, trade services, hospitality/farming and personal services were selected.

St Kilda business Alanassociates was finalist for the second year in a row at this stunning gala event. Alan Schwarz said that he made his big step to having a website( which he had previously resisted.” I am still plugging away at my 20 year passion of debt collecting. But this year I have also branched out into assisting businesses negotiate cheaper costs with suppliers and getting sales appointments for clients” he said.

Awards Organiser John Gannan said the judges were looking for businesses that showed innovation in each of the five award categories.

He said the awards were a great opportunity for small businesses to gain recognition for their products.“ The awards are about recognition, which builds self confidence, self esteem and professionalism. An increase in recognition leads to an increase in business.”

John believes that step one is winning the award and the next step is to promote the win to benefit the business. “ If you do nothing, nothing is likely to happen.”

People are ditching the traditional workplace and opting to combine lifestyle and work to run their own businesses from home creating a dynamic and diverse network that is shaping the way people go to work.

From traditional trades of plumbers and carpenters to specialized internet based marketing and giftware operations the diversity of home based business is immense.
