A bit about myself
I started Bizbuzz (or HomebizBuzz as it was called then) in 2000, when I worked from home and realised there was nowhere for home businesses to find relevant information, nor a community of like-minded people to tap into for support, or just a chat. A few years later, Smallbizbuzz was born, and the two sites have since amalgamated to become Bizbuzz as you see it today: a popular, active destination for self-employed business owners, a place to find information, resources, tools, support and friends.
I'm passionate about micro business, as they are often "invisible" and their contribution to the economy is under-rated. I've been involved in research projects, co-written a book chapter, launched The David Awards and lobbied government and others to help give the micro business person a voice. In 2005, I was humbled to receive a Vero Excellence in Business Support for the Individual who had made the biggest contribution to business support in New Zealand.
When I'm not driving Bizbuzz, I enjoy gardening, experimenting in the kitchen, entertaining, travel and spending time with my family.
