WINTER SPECIAL – 90% OFF Personal TrainingJune 3, 2021
Good to be hereMay 27, 2021
Its has been quite the 18 months. For video production business like mine work came to a crashing halt in March 2020. That month I was gearing up to film Anzac Day, traveling to Canberra to visit new clients, filming in hospitals and filming in conferences; all of which ceased.
Video production is a face to face business; sure you can make use of stock footage, but if you really want to sell YOUR business people need to see YOU and your product. COVID showed us the benefit of video with the rise of ZOOM meetings.
Now, we rise again, but for may like myself it is like starting from scratch. To this end I have raised my game on freelancing websites and created my business profile on Georges River Business platform.
So far so good! The business profile only started today but in recent weeks I have made videos for “A Microsoft Award Pitch”, a CEO presentation for overseas conference, and a Facebook video for a hair salon.
Let’s rise together, we’ll get there. If video can help your business, I would be delighted to hear from you.
The biggest influence you have is when you lead by example.May 26, 2021
Rewrite the Night’ Grants now openMay 17, 2021
Georges River Council is supporting small local businesses with $40,000 in grant funds to boost and transform our nightlife.
Local businesses can apply now for a ‘Rewrite the Night’ grant that can be used to activate their business at night. Grant categories include live music, arts, performance and lighting.
You may be a daytime business that wants to trade later at night with a different offering. This could be a florist by day leasing its site for an art exhibition at night or a coffee shop by day operating as a small bar by night.

Mother’s Day Message from Sash Tattoo
We have come about our yearly reminder to show love to the most important woman in our lives; yes, it’s Mother’s Day! Whether she was the one who went through the pain and likely destruction of her own body to bring you into this world, or the one who stepped up to the plate to raise you; the woman deserves a medal. So, use this time to make sure the words and affections you may not show as often as you should, are portrayed. Whether you’re planning to get her some overpriced flowers, chocolates, jewellery, make sure you do some cleaning as well! By far the best gift will be to get matching tattoos with mum. Grab your mum a gift voucher for something special, something you will share together forever.
And to my own mother, though I’ll never fully comprehend the sacrifices you’ve made to give us the life we are blessed to have, I thank you eternally.
Your favourite Tattoo Apprentice,
