Australia’s Top Female & Startup Working Capital
I just stumbled across an article for Australia’s top female entrepreneurs for 2011 (smartcompany.com.au)and I must say I got a little excited, if not inspired to perhaps one day start my own business.
I looked at the 2009/10 revenue for business woman like Leslie Gillespie owner of Bakers Delight ($566 million) and Janine Allis from Boost Juice ($135 million) and I think to myself what if these ladies didn’t pursue their business idea and decided it was unachievable? What if they put it in the too hard basket and went on with their daily 9-5 job none the wiser that they were sitting on a potential goldmine?

AR Cash Flow offers what we call our ‘Business Launch Program’ which purely focuses on startup ventures and new business ideas in their infancy.
If you need assistance to get your business up and running there are just a few necessities AR may ask for
