Hi all,


For this 100th weekly update, I wanted to start with a huge thank you to all those Community members that so regularly assist others by sharing their knowledge and expertise. There’s not a single day here on the Community Forum that I am not impressed by people’s generosity in sharing their time and experience.


In the past week, our top contributors were Dee-Workman, AlanT, jenniek, ronatbas and Mike_James. Extra kudos to Dee-Workman and The_Doc who had multiple posts marked as solutions.


It was another busy week on the Community, with 900 posts, including 400 from MYOB staff. We also had over 250 new members join us, and will soon pass the benchmark of 70,000 registered users. A very warm welcome to all our new members.


As the Shop Small campaign continues, don't forget that Australian business owners can promote themselves as part of our “Love your work” campaign. Businesses simply take a photo containing a simple handwritten message to promote themselves - tagged with the #spruik hashtag, and upload it on MYOB’s website.


Not only will your #spruik help share your passion for your business, it also puts you in the running to win one of four prize packages worth $25,000. There is also 25 runner-up prizes of $1000 business grants for the most creative #spruiks.


Speaking of opportunities, it was great to see that New Zealand’s small-to-medium enterprises are now showing the highest growth in more than half a decade, capping a remarkable turnaround in the last five years.


The Five Year MYOB Business Monitor Report, which canvases the biannual national survey of over 1000 small and medium sized business operators over the five years from July 2009, illustrates how far businesses have come since the Global Financial Crisis. In the latest Business Monitor survey, released in September, almost twice as many businesses report revenue growth as losses – more than reversing the trend seen in mid-2009.


Hope you all have a wonderful, well-deserved break over the weekend.


Love your work,


Jason Hill
