Business tips from Peter

  1. Invest to Grow: To make money, you need to invest money. This includes investing in up-to-date equipment, training for team members and your own personal development.
  2. Build Wealth Gradually: Real wealth comes from running a profitable business and wisely managing your profits. Remember, true wealth also means having the discretionary time to enjoy life.

Get to know Peter

Having grown up on a family vineyard in the Riverland area of South Australia, Peter’s been around small businesses his whole life and understands the day-to-day struggles business owners go through and the vital role that each family member plays in the success of the family business.

Peter has always been a strong advocate for an ideal work/life balance and has an outside passion for cycling, woodturning and wooden toy making.  On the weekends, you can find Peter spending time with his grandchildren or out in the garden tending his flowers and fruit trees and vegetable garden.  Peter also has a client that runs camel treks out in the Simpson Desert, and he has enjoyed trekking with them a number of times.

Life is about being able to do what you want, when you want to do it, and in whatever manner you want to.
