TAS Country : April 26th 2012
50 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 27, 2012 Be your own boss 'We knew owning a business wasn't going to be a walk in the park so we sought help NEW OWNERS: Elijah Taylor and business partner Eddie Maguire. BUSINESS Point is helping businesses to make it in Tasmania. Business Point is a fast, free and confidential telephone information and referral service for people starting and operating a business here. This service is funded by the Tasman- ian Government through the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts. Business Point can provide assistance and information on how to: Start your business Market your business Increase and manage business growth Improve efficiency and productivity Improve national and international competitiveness Access government programs. The firm can provide contact with local small business consultants through En- terprise Centres Tasmania. Enterprise Centres are a network of independent, non-profit, community based organisations partly funded by the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts. Their consultants provide free practical one-on-one guidance and offer expertise in starting a business, strategic manage- ment, business planning, marketing, finance, and export. The consultants have expertise in small business and are well placed to provide assistance on business issues. Each centre runs regular workshops to build business operator skills in areas such as online marketing, cash-flow man- agement and staffing. In 2010-11, the Enterprise Centre net- work provided assistance to 3312 clients resulting in $11.4 million in business investment and 819 new jobs in Tasmania. Total Lock and Alarm Services is one of the many successful businesses assisted by Enterprise Centres Tasmania. Known for its security products, includ- ing alarms and cameras, the business also specialises in all aspects of locksmithing. Total Lock and Alarm Services has a northern branch in Burnie and a new southern branch in Hobart. After working for Total Lock and Alarm Services, Elijah Taylor and Eddie Maguire could see the benefits of being their own bosses. With help from their local Enterprise Centre, Braddon Business Centre, they bought the Burnie business. The Enterpr- ise Centre later helped the duo buy a lock and alarm business in Hobart. The two branches employ a total of 10 staff. ''We knew that owning a business wasn't going to be a walk in the park, so we sought help from the Braddon Business Centre. The consultant helped us apply for a business loan and better understand the sales process,'' Mr Maguire said. ''The Enterprise Centre also provided feedback and guidance on how to grow our business. We have both been putting in the hard yards at work, which has also helped to make our business stronger.''
