My dad was a small business man from Mumbai in India. With his hard work and dedication to my growth I managed to secure education in an Australian university. Coming from a business background I quickly took interesting my education about business administration. My growth was seen in the results; I had emphatically topped by batch and was offered placements in the top institutions around Australia. That been said I had other plans. From the second year of my education I had become close friends with Matt, my study buddy from university. We both were passionate about business and planned to kick off our own business once we finished with our university. We were a perfect team, willing to help each other out and swift with our actions and decisions. It was this kind of interaction that made me believe in him. We were always in competition to secure the first position and even the teachers had come to expect either of us to come first. With such a great understanding, we decided it would be great to create a venture together. We started making our business plans, trying to analyse the work environment in the city. By the time we graduated, we had a comprehensive business plan in place.
We finally decided to sell household items online. We noticed that a lot of people are keen to buy things online and have them delivered at home. We quickly created a website and a data management system, making it fully functional. We advertised our service through social media and it was an instant hit! Our business was growing swiftly and to maximise our reach we had to arrange for a toll free number. We researched about 1300 Numbers and decided to check out some 1300 numbers Australia. While the 1800 numbers Australia was well known we decided to buy a 1300 number. We checked out all the telephone number for sale and picked out some of the smart numbers. You find many 1800 numbers being Phone words Australia. We personally preferred Phone words and phone names. Less than 10 days later we were up and running. The phone helped us reach out to the older people who aren’t digitally native. It is amazing how these services caught on and we were pressed to hire more people. We worked hard day and night as we ensured orders were obtained, processed and even shipped on time. Our dedication to work and prompt service ensured a great reputation and positive word of mouth. Very soon we were featured by the local news channel and so many more people started ordering through our website.
It was very touching to see our parents being so happy for us. That in itself was like an achievement. We formally decided to incorporate the company and had some special financial advisors help us set up the company. The best part about it was that it was funded completely by me. Matt came from a humble background and hence couldn’t afford to contribute to the fund. This gave him lesser of the company shares but he worked as hard as me. When we became self-sufficient and financially stable, as a mark of our friendship, I gave him equal shares of the company as a birthday gift. Today we are poised to become one of hottest start-up companies with stable finances in Australia.
