Business Coaching Winners - Yummy Mummy Day Spa

Yummy Mummy Pregnancy Day SpaOur most recent Business Accelerator Package winner was Amy Mitchell from Yummy Mummy Pregnancy Massage and Day Spa.

We were so excited to meet Amy and the team at Yummy Mummy - who run Australia’s only pregnancy day spa! Yummy Mummy's trained therapists specialise in taking care of pregnant women right from conception, through to birth and beyond - offering treatments that have been designed by pregnant women for pregnant women!

If you are pregnant (or know someone who is), we would highly recommend contacting Yummy Mummy for some pampering and pain relief to start feeling like a Yummy Mummy once more! Did we mention that they even have gift vouchers.....

The Yummy Mummy experience is presently available in Perth, with plans to come to Sydney and Melbourne soon. Amy is in the process of working through the first stage of the Small Fish Business Coaching system, and we look forward with tremendous anticipation to see Yummy Mummy expand Australia-wide, and maybe even internationally!

Stay tuned - we will let you know how it goes!

The Single Most Important Question In Business

As business owners, we hear all the time that word-of-mouth is the best form of marketing. As a result, we focus on building our referral network - the group of people that know what we do, and can act as advocates for our business into the broader community. This is what word-of-mouth marketing is all about. (And if you don't believe me, go and visit your local BNI.

Is Your Hourly Rate Enough?

Hourly Rate CalculatorDo you feel like you are NOT earning enough for all the hard work you do in your small business? Are your earning requirements fair and reasonable?

If you answered yes to both questions, then maybe you need to put your prices up!

Many small businesses charge too little for the products or services they provide. This leaves them with a business that operates on small margins and, often, earning less from all their hard work than they would earn in a job!

Sometimes it is difficult to work out what your business’ charge-out rate should be.

To help in this situation, you can use the Hourly Rate Calculator - a useful little tool to help you work out an hourly charge-out rate for your business.

This tool is also useful if you are facing competitive pressures. It gives you an opportunity to analyse your costs for efficiencies, as well as understand any competitive advantage you may have (to help you better explain why you charge more than your competitors).
The Hourly Rate Calculator (and instructions on how to use it) can be downloaded from the Small Fish website here. Of course, if you get stuck, give us a call.
