it’s all about growth

We’re just two issues into the year, but already we’re turning the spotlight up on growth. Why? Because growth is what business is all about. Without growth, a business is on a highway to nowhere, stuck in a daily grind in which its owners can see no way forward. Growth is a big deal for business owners, which is why it is covered so often within the pages of this magazine and on our digital platforms. In preparation for this month’s Growing your Business feature, I typed the words ‘Growing your business’ into the search box of the NZBusiness editorial database covering the past 15 years. It produced no less than 1053 editorial items – proof that we regularly visit the subject of business growth, because growth is such an essential requirement for…

growth to crow about

It seems everyone’s a foodie these days – when we aren’t ordering fresh meal kits to the door or Marie Kondo-ing our kitchen cupboards we are sourcing delicious, healthy, sustainable and locally produced products for our pantries. And it is this market of health-conscious, on-trend foodies that Mike and Chris Millar are targeting with the premium muesli and roasted seed topper products they manufacture under the brand name Something to Crow About. They focus on gluten-free, low-sugar, paleo-friendly muesli blends with options for vegans and those looking to avoid preservatives. The couple both formerly held corporate roles, with Mike working as a business development manager and Chris working in marketing communications, and were looking for better balance in their lives. “So, in 2014 Mike decided to hop off the corporate ladder and work…

knock, knock he's here!

“Often we can be intimidated or afraid of failure, rather than inspired by the potential of success.” The year’s barely begun. You’ve had enough of your job. Time to go out on your own? Someone suggests ‘event management’. That shouldn’t be too hard. Lots of ex-corporate PAs do it all the time. Even junior sponsorship managers seem to be going it alone. Just how hard could it be? What sort of background and experience do you need to make a go of it? And are there options outside Auckland? NZBusiness asked Luke Schroder, owner of Knock Knock Events, a successful two-year start-up, what skills he relies on for his Tauranga-based event management company. “First and foremost, I’m a problem-solver,” he says. “If there’s an idea or concept I don’t know how to implement, I…

boom times for digital commerce

Business entrepreneurs have been known to harbour over-optimistic growth predictions. But when you hear the grand plans of Overdose.Digital’s co-founders – Group CEO Todd Welling and creative director Ryan Delaney – you just sense they’re right on the money. That’s because 2018 was such a stunning year for the business. The runs already on the board are impressive to say the least. Let’s examine those runs. In November the rapidly growing digital commerce ‘anti-agency’ won Best Emerging Business, Central, at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards. In a mere two years the team has grown from just Welling and Delaney to 85 staff across Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore and the Ukraine. Early this year they’re opening in Wellington and expanding their Auckland head office – while offshore the focus is on Sydney and a…
