PostSubject: Triangle Business Community   Wed Mar 04, 2009 5:06 am

Thanks to Lisa for getting this website going - thank you! Today I spoke with some Marysville business owners who are very frustrated about lack of access, information, communication etc and we discussed the possibility of setting up a weekly business community get together - to help each other pool resources, start planning from scratch and just supporting each other. If you are interested or have suggestions, or maybe there is already something started that others don't know about yet, please blog on! or if you have any info ask the Triangle News to publish it. We need a Triangle venue and a regular time that suits most people... I look forward to hearing from other small business owners soon.

Hi Julia, While I don't have an interest in any small business (apart from community businesses such as school, Kinder and transport!), I am very interested in businesses. In particular, communication between businesses and the public, and between businesses themselves. One suggestion I would like to make, is that if you do get a group together, or if there is an existing group/s, that you create an online meeting space - a virtual meeting - , and feed the results of that back to residents and potential visitors through a website/s (perhaps even this one?) Information I know I would find useful includes: which businesses are still operating, what their hours are, what they do and how to contact them.
As to the Triangle News, of any posts to this forum, ones that mention the Triangle News definitely generate the most interest. I believe it is the most well read, credible - even loved - document we have in the Triangle and should be used at every opportunity.
Thanks for your input

Hi Julie and Lisa,
My name is Tammie and I am from CRUMBS from the top shop. We are planning to return to Marysville when it is rebuilt and would like to be a part of helping in any way we can. We are currently finding a temporary kitchen to continue trade until we can return to Marysville but even then we are unsure if the owner of our building will rebuild or even if we are able to rent there again. All things to come I am sure.
We would love to be part of communicating with other businesses and the community. I am contactable on 0408557121 if there is anything I can do to help. We live in Healesville so if anyone is around and just needs a cuppa and a chat we are always around.
Thanks

Tammie Livingstone
CRUMBS

Thanks Tammie. I trust there will be biscuits with that cuppa! Good luck with finding a temporary facility.

PostSubject: community business support   Tue Mar 10, 2009 2:56 pm

I think we have an opportunity to combine resources for different businesses on a temporary basis to share facilities such as kitchens, toilets, cafe space at the temporary community site being set up by the Shire and community development committee - especially during this winter season. I am wanting to run some art therapy classes for kids, teens and adults, and am trying to source funding through Shire etc. I am interested in what mums and people think the need would be and when. thanks - Julia

Julia, Great Idea. One of the things that has always presented itself to me as a challenge in a community such as ours, is that there is great pressure on volunteer community members to administer...There are upwards of 30 committees that I can identify that operate around our district. Thats 30 secretaries, 30 Treasurers, 30 Presidents...and all those reports and minutes. Add to that businesses, and you have a huge requirement for office-type facilities. Computers, printers, Meeting rooms (always a challenge to find an affordable meeting venue), phone etc. (I sit on 5 committees executives. I can't even begin to estimate how much that costs me in equipment, paper, phone, admin time). Several years ago I saw a community facility started in a Mallee town, called postcode 3*** (can't remember the postcode!). Like a community house, but more business oriented, with facilities for organisations to get organised, and space for all the arts. The vision has stayed with me.
As to art therapy, I think the need will be high, its just that it may not be recognised. If you can make it available, I would love to see children's groups. I for one would certainly access it for my 4 children, and encourge others.

Well...As I know Van leasing is a viable option for businesses, self-employed people and those who are looking to lease a van for private use. Well moreover leasing a Van its best that buy a new vehicle we know in this hard economic times, not everyone has the funds or is able to arrange for the finance to buy a new van. With the tax benefits also..we can say it wa beneficial also..!!

Yes well said, I must say this is quite good platform specially for those who are looking for self employed business. People should approach this so that they can earn money as per their efforts.
