But what is a small business in Australia? 

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, a small business employs fewer than 20 people. It includes businesses owned and operated by a single person and those owned by a small group of people and operated with the help of a few employees.

Small businesses can be found in almost every industry and sector, from retail and hospitality to manufacturing and professional services. They range in size and scope from home-based businesses that operate on a small scale to larger enterprises with a presence in multiple locations.

One of the key benefits of small businesses is that they are often nimble and quickly adapt to change. It allows them to respond to customer needs and market trends in a way that larger businesses might need help.

In addition, small businesses often have a strong sense of community and can be important hubs for social and economic activity in their local area. They also provide opportunities for entrepreneurship and can serve as a stepping stone for aspiring business owners.

The Bottom Line:

Overall, small businesses are a vital part of the Australian economy and play a crucial role in driving innovation and creating jobs. 

If you’re thinking of starting a small business or already owning one, staying up to date with the latest trends and resources available to help you succeed is important. So, it is always a good idea to stay updated and seek help from experts.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
