Posted September 23, 2018 14:31:00 While many are aware of the huge potential for growth in the financial services sector, a recent survey by the Australian Financial Services Union (AFSU) reveals that there are still some financial services professionals struggling to find their footing.
“There are a lot of people struggling to get the foot on the ladder in terms of earning enough to buy a house and start a family,” AFSU national president David O’Brien told Business Insider.
“It is a real challenge for people, and they are struggling with the fact that the housing market is very tight, they don’t have the money to buy, they are working in jobs that don’t pay enough to support their family.”
With this in mind, O’Briens organisation has launched a series of initiatives designed to help people who want to start or grow a business in the next year or two.
The first of these, called StartUp Australia, aims to help small businesses create a viable business plan and grow quickly by identifying key elements that will help them grow.
If you or someone you know is struggling to build a business and want help, call 1300 866 526 or visit the StartUp website.
The second is a new website, Invest Now, which aims to assist Australians invest in a growing business that provides real jobs and income for its staff.
According to O’Broin, the second website is more focused on helping Australians make the investment, rather than just the company itself.
When you start investing in an organisation like StartUp, you can help it grow by helping it develop its business plan.
You can also get advice on how to get started and get your business off the ground.
Once you have the business plan, StartUp will work with you to find suitable investors.
