My Buzz

We were so delighted that our cheeky summer-themed tweet caught Theo's eye - and even more delighted to be invited to join the #SBS family.

The welcome tweets have been so warm and friendly and we were genuinely touched by all the support we've received from other winners. We look forward to getting to know you and, if you're interested in accessibility and are in the hospitality industry, we look forward to working with you. I'm sure we could rustle up an SBS winners discount rate for you!

My Business Tips

"Enjoy what you do."

It's an oldie but a goodie. When you're passionate about what you do, it really doesn't feel like work and that's why running your own business and doing something you feel passionate about is so great.
