This week The Mentor is about bikinis and carparks! It was great to talk to Rebecca Klodinsky, the founder of Frankie Swimwear about her growth into a global business from zero background in fashion. I also talk about patience in business with Jack Perkins and Alex Peck from Parallel Parking, an app allowing people to lease their garages and driveways to people needing a car spot.

Make sure you tune in.

Two great examples of everyday ingenuity at work on the MB Show today. Jason Loft from Pedal’s Espresso and Tim Jones from Travelshoot are now reaping the rewards of simple and well executed business models.

Humble but clever, and certainly testament to the fact that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to make a buck!

Building brands can be tough, but don’t worry TMBS has got you covered. James Kennedy has worked with some of the biggest brands on the planet; Rolex, IWC and Bang & Olufsen to name a few and has returned to TMBS to share some of his insights. Tyson Koh also joins the show to share the real impact Sydney lockout laws are having on small business, the tourism industry and the Sydney way of life.

‘Keep looking forward and never stand still!’

Sophie Monk talks reinvention, plus John Winning and Gen George back in the studio to talk about contemporary business practices and setting yourself up properly for a productive 2016.

I’ve been running my own newsagency for 10 years, how do I know when it’s a good time to sell? My daughter’s boyfriend wants me to be his guarantor on a small investment loan, do you think it’s too risky? How can I show my boss I’m more able and talented than my colleagues?

The answer to our risky guarantor is particularly insightful.
