Bartercard – The Smart Franchise Solution professional services, commercial equipment, advertising and graphic design while growing their customer base and creating viability.

Bartercard’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Hall said that Bartercard continues to expand and diversify its mix of products and services on offer to thousands of business owners trading with Bartercard.

Early civilizations relied on bartering to exchange products and services before currency was invented. Just like the baker traded with the flour mill and luxury products were swapped with lucrative services, today the same concept continues for thousands of businesses that are members of the world’s largest barter exchange: Bartercard. Bartercard serves 55,000 card-holders world-wide and 35,000 in Australia through its franchise system of 40 offices around the country. The alternative currency solution allows business owners to offset cash expenses, typically anything from consumables and entertainment, to

From a franchising perspective it serves up a set of exclusive benefits for franchisees looking for a professional business venture. Bartercard franchisees deal exclusively in the B2B sector and operate within business hours rather than a 7-day working week typical for the food, beverage and hospitality sectors. They work in a professional environment leading a team of account managers who work exclusively with small to medium-sized business owners on a local level to develop their business strategy and leverage their brand across the barter network. They support their client base by finding customised trading solutions to offset their cash expenses and increase a business’s capacity to grow. Bartercard franchises are typically small teams of experienced staff, skilled to create tailored approaches for a varied clientele. The franchise model offers extensive training and a large experienced national office to support each franchise office. Bartercard’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Hall said that the appeal of Bartercard from

a franchising perspective is working with a varied member base to grow and support their businesses through customised trading solutions – part and parcel of a Bartercard membership. “It creates a tailored solution for leveraging their products and services to a market actively looking to trade and because of the number of ways which Bartercard can be applied to offset cash expenses, franchisees have the scope to work with members in many ways”, he said. Testament to its benefits, Bartercard is trading in almost every Australian business sector with professional services, hospitality, retail and advertising its strongest industries. Bartercard’s current trade volume is $60 mil. per month world-wide and it continues to expand and diversify the mix of products and services on offer. Brian added that franchises benefit from a 5 day working week that has an income stream 365 days a year. “You don’t get that with all franchise models.” For more information on franchise opportunities with Bartercard, visit or call 1300 BARTER (1300 227 837)

Financial Leverage… What is it? And Why Do You Need It? By William de Ora

William de Ora Can your business provide you with financial leverage? If you were to buy or sell a business, will you achieve financial freedom? These are important questions to ask when it comes to creating an income beyond your current business venture. To create wealth, saving money is an important factor. However, if you rely only on saving money, you’re likely to have to wait your entire lifetime to become wealthy. Be honest, would you want to wait until you’re 80 or 90 to become a millionaire? There is another

way, and it’s what most property investors use to create wealth. It’s financial leverage.

undergoing debt management stress testing, or maintaining an effective interest rate safety buffer or margin.

What is financial leverage, you may ask? Well, it is the act of borrowing money via a mortgage in order to make an investment that would have been otherwise impossible. The key benefit of financial leverage comes from the fact that it allows you to purchase a valuable asset without the need of having to wait decades upon decades of saving money.

For most people, acquiring debt is necessary for creating an investment portfolio that generates highly profitable returns. But the important question that you must ask is this: how much debt must I acquire? Well this of course depends on your financial goals and the real estate investments required to reach them. At all times, this is about being responsible about how much debt you can handle, and working with the right advisors.

The Rewards Far Outweigh the Fear A common fear that people have when considering acquiring financial leverage debt are interest rate fluctuations. This is completely understandable, as a 1% interest rate increase would equal to a $10,000 loss on $1,000,000 worth of mortgage loans. Although the risk of interest rate fluctuations do exist, it’s of an utmost important to remember that there are effective tools and methods available to help with debt management such as: having the right insurance plan,

Communication Drives All Your Other Marketing Strategies… By Bob Lyon The single most important strategy you can use to maximize the value of all the other strategies is to communicate regularly with anyone that contributes or will contribute in any way to your business success. You need to do this in order to maintain strong, positive relationships that can benefit all involved. It’s a simple strategy. It’s powerful, it’s incredibly enjoyable, yet its concept is not understood and practiced by many of the businesses and professionals I work with. But before I explain how to do it, let me tell you why you must do it. People are bombarded by more information today than at any other time in history. That causes you a real problem. The moment they have transacted business with you, their minds immediately shift to some other concern, issue, challenge, problem or need and you drift out of their mind. Your challenge and your biggest opportunity, if you’re going to retain and sustain significant client transactions, are to keep those clients connected to you. Keep clients constantly thinking, how good you are, how valuable you are, and how much you care about them and their wellbeing. Keep them thinking about how much they enjoy desire and value the products or services you provide and keep that connection alive and flowing. “Constantly” doesn’t work if it’s not strategic. And by strategic I mean it’s got to be ongoing and purposeful and it has to serve the client. The more contact and communication you have with a person, the stronger and richer the relationship becomes. In business the secret is keeping and growing clients and developing a continual and meaningful communication with everyone important to you. This is a simple and very powerful method of getting the most out of your clients or key contacts. Communicating with a client and telling them how great you are doesn’t do the client a lot of good. Communicating with clients and finding out how well your product or service is performing, offering them a free check-up or service review, offering advice that will help them get longer or better use from your product or service is a great benefit to them. So you have to make certain that whatever strategy you use to communicate constantly with your clients is one that always puts the client’s interests ahead of your own. And while we’re talking about constantly 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

communicating with your clients, look at your clients as dear and valued friends. The way I see it, I’m lucky to have clients who are so valued they’re old friends. I’m deeply connected to them. I care about them far beyond their capacity to spend money with me. I celebrate with them, I emphasise with them, and I’m there for the agony and the ecstasy. If you share that feeling, you’ve got more motivation and desire to communicate, to keep in touch (just as you would with any good friends). If you look at your clients as friends with whom you have the opportunity and pleasure to stay connected with, it makes the process a lot more enjoyable, fulfilling and ultimately more profitable. And don’t just communicate with clients. Open a dialogue with anyone and everyone who can help you reach your goals. Develop relationships with colleagues, people in other businesses, employees’ even competitors. Call, E-mail or write people who do what you do, who sell the product or service you sell, but in a market where you don’t compete. Share with them, find out what they’re doing and where they’re finding new avenues of success. Find a mentor, someone who has been where you are and knows the pitfalls and opportunities you’re facing. This could be a person who has retired from your industry but has vast amounts of knowledge that you could benefit from. I taught a dentist to contact her patients continually. She calls every patient after they’ve had a procedure. She calls to check how they’re doing and how the procedure worked. She does it right after the work has been done. And she programs her data management system to call again in a week’s time. She programs her D.M.S. to call again in a month’s time. Have you ever had a dentist do that? What do you think would happen if your dentist called you two or three days after they’ve done a major filling? What do you think would happen if they called you a week later just to make sure the pain and discomfort were totally gone? … You’d be shocked. What do you think would happen if they called you thirty days later just to make absolutely sure there were no reoccurrence, no problem, no irritation, and no inflammation? Do you think it would demonstrate that they cared about you at a level much deeper than any other dentist you’ve had? Do you think you’d be inclined to think about them often and tell your friends? Do you think you’d be inclined to keep your

appointments and not break them with this dentist? Do you think you’d want to take all your family members there and tell everybody you worked with or all your neighbours about this dentist? … Of course you would, and that’s what happens. This lady’s practice has boomed since she began this simple procedure. When you do contact clients after they’ve done business with you, it’s a perfect time to gently remind them of why they chose to do business with you in the first place Your unique selling proposition and your solid risk reversal policy. People rarely understand the benefits you provide them – unless you carefully educate them to fully appreciate your efforts on their behalf. Teach your client why that U.S.P. and risk reversal advantage is so much more important than the benefits offered by your competitors. A post purchase follow up expressing your U.S.P. and guarantees is vital, regardless of how frequently you back-end or resell to that client. You enhance your client’s loyalty and value to your business by following up after the sale. At the very least, a follow up call or letter drastically reduces or eliminates, cancellations, returns, complaints, adjustments and disputes. And it reassures the client of the prudence of their recent purchase from you. Other businesses can use continual communication to have customers return more often. A chiropractor could send letters to his patients every four months. He could call patients personally twice a year. He could alert them to exercises and examinations they can do, he could tell them about new procedures he has and offer continual opportunities to come in for free services. Does it work? Well I can tell you that one chiropractor has a waiting list of people trying to get an appointment … because he’s booked four weeks in advance. This was not the case when I first met him. Any business could use this method, send letters and actually go and visit their clients. The more people you network with develop relationships with, the more opportunities and insights you’ll have. Open one door leads to dozens of other doors - Opening dozens of doors leads to hundreds of others.

Cool Business With Lots of Potential The business is still in its infancy but has achieved a growth rate of over 300% in the last 2 years. Water coolers have been around for many years and there is plenty of competition out there, but this rental business has developed a unique filtration system that refines tap water to a product that is the equal to the best of any spring water on the market. What is being offered for purchase is a large exclusive area that takes in the north and western suburbs of Melbourne and Central Victoria. This is a simple business to operate and could be easily run from a home base anywhere within or near the designated area. The business involves the distribution, installation and servicing of rented water coolers, currently with over 820 rented units in operation. The business has established a solid corporate clientele (Telstra, Origin Energy, Elders, Stockland Group etc.) plus a great number of smaller, loyal clients. Presently the rental business is generating over $470,000 in income with a high margin of profit. There is huge potential for ongoing growth with only a part of the exclusive territory being worked to date. This would be a great opportunity for a husband and wife team with a lot of the initial work having already been done, supplying a solid and continuing income. The purchase price includes all stock and equipment plus a vehicle (VW Caddy as new $70K plus). The current owner is willing to provide training and advice during the transition. Further financial details would be available once confidentiality provisions have been completed.

Jason Gehrke The overwhelming majority of people who are attracted to franchising are first-timers in business who are drawn by the branding, support and infrastructure provided by a franchise chain that takes the pain out of reinventing the business wheel. Without prior experience in business, potential franchisees have no comparable frames of reference in their decision-making process, and consequently often revert to the same types of processes used in other major acquisitions, such as the purchase of a car or a house. In buying either a car or a house, the purchaser is required to still undertake their due diligence to protect their interests, and for houses (and most cars) will also need to sign a contract. Of course the nature of the due diligence between the purchase of cars and homes compared to that required for the acquisition of a business is very different, although many of the same principles apply. One of the commonalities is the emotional investment in the decision being made. People buy the cars they drive and houses in which they live based on a number of factors, all of which can be summarised as simply a liking for the car or the house. This emotionally-led decision (along with the elimination of options the buyer didn’t like) then becomes the frame of reference by which they also seek franchises (ie. they seek to acquire one they like), without appreciating that liking something may not be enough to actually make any money out of it. A key difference between the transaction to acquire a car or house and a franchise is the outcome itself, which many potential franchisees don’t fully understand up front. The outcome referred to here is ownership. When a buyer puts their money down to buy a car or a house (or 12 Australian Business For Sale ®

If they don’t like the colour of the house, they can repaint it. If it’s too small, they can extend it. If it’s too old, they can renovate it, and so on. Likewise with buying a car. The new owner can drive the car fast or slow, on bitumen or on dirt, with roof racks or without, and can accessorise the vehicle to their heart’s content with window tinting, towbars, entertainment systems, mag wheels and so on. Cars and houses are usually bought under finance, and where conditions are applied to the ownership of the item, it is usually dependent on the loan being repaid and kept up to date. Buying accessories for the car or furniture for the house involves the same process of making a desired selection, paying for it, then choosing what happens with these items thereafter. The point is that by paying their money, the buyer can do more or less what they please with the item they’ve bought. Ownership provides the freedom to determine the future look, feel, fashion, usage, functionality and worth of the item bought, and generally this freedom to choose is determined almost entirely on the person’s ability to pay for the item and whatever they wish to do with it afterwards. Which brings us to the acquisition of a franchise, which, on the face of it involves a similar process of “buying” something, however the outcome is totally different. A “buyer” will go through a similar process of finding something that appeals to them in (or slightly above) a price range they can afford, as if they are buying a car or a house. But while having the money alone may be enough to qualify a person to buy a car or a house, it is just one consideration in the process of acquiring a franchise, which is why franchises aren’t bought. A franchise is defined as a conditional grant, which is very different from

outright ownership. The conditions attached to a franchise grant are set by the franchisor in the best interests of the system and the brand, and which may change over time. Failing to observe the conditions of the grant at all times may result in the grant being withdrawn. So unlike the case of buying a house or a car where the vendor is paid their money and then has no further interest in the item sold, a franchisor is not only paid the money upfront (plus usually an ongoing fee), but also takes a very close interest in the ongoing welfare and performance of the franchise. Ultimately, the franchisor also has the power to withdraw the franchise if the franchisee fails to follow the system guidelines which they are required to uphold. Therefore buying a franchise is very different from buying anything else, yet precious few franchisees fully appreciate this in advance. By subconsciously equating the purchase of a franchise with the purchase of a car or a house, potential franchise buyers also assume that the ability to pay and a desire to acquire are enough for the purchase to proceed. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most franchise systems have rigorous selection criteria and seek specific attributes among potential franchisees that money and desire alone cannot overcome. Failing to understand this in advance can be both confusing and annoying for a potential franchisee who learns they do not have the necessary attributes to join the system on which they had set their sights. For this reason, potential franchisees need to be informed up front that there can be no guarantee that they will be successful in their quest for a franchise. Many systems can do better in this regard by changing some of the words used in the franchise application process. A simple first step is to refer to potential franchisees as candidates instead of buyers, leads, etc. The use of the word candidate conveys that there can be no guaranteed outcome in the selection process, irrespective of how much money the person may have or how keen they are to join the franchise.

To be a successful candidate in other walks of life requires that a person have the qualities required to survive some kind of screening or elimination process. Unfortunately when the perception of buying a franchise is subconsciously compared with buying cars or houses, candidates at first acknowledge the ability to pay as the only qualification required to be granted a franchise. By referring to potential franchisees as candidates, and explaining the selection process up front, franchisors can more effectively identify both suitable and unsuitable candidates, as well as improve the quality of new entrants to the system, while at the same time demonstrating real value in the franchise grant on offer.

nature of the franchise grant, making it clear to incoming franchisees that accessorizing their businesses like they would with a new car or a house will require the consent of the franchisor, and cannot be done on a whim alone. After all, every other franchisee in the network has made a similar investment, and protecting the value of those investments requires that all franchisees must adhere to standards in the operation of their businesses. For these reasons, “buying” a franchise is very different from buying a house, and should be approached by both franchisors and franchise candidates very differently.

In doing so, franchisors also reinforce the conditional

Why Quitting Is For Winners By Simon Munton - Editor, The Escapologist profundity gives way to simplicity.

pull it out, dab a bit of Savlon on the wound, and let it heal.

Dear Professional, How would you counsel a son or daughter who was struggling in a destructive relationship? If you could see they were miserable and hopeless, going through the motions… what would you advise them to do? If they’d worked at it, tried their best to find common ground, sought help, compromised and made sacrifices – but still no dice… what would you recommend? Abort! Pull the plug! Walk away! Of course you would. You love your kids. You feel their hurt and pain almost as much as they do. You want it to end. The situation might be complicated, but the remedy is simple. It’s like walking around with a splinter in your foot. Just

Too often, people try to intellectualise what is, in essence, a straightforward conundrum.

Almost always, ridding yourself of the poisonous influence works. You feel happier, healthier, more optimistic, freer and more confident. Perhaps not instantly, but in time.

But to do that is to ignore the problem’s emotional significance or urgency. Plus it leads to ‘analysis paralysis’. You spend so much time trying to investigate the problem; you forget to try and solve it.

And you get to chalk something up to experience. That’s always valuable – provided you learn from the episode. How did this happen? Was I to blame, partially or fully? How do I stop the same thing from happening again?

Put another way: there’s no point wasting time looking for an abstract explanation when all you need to do is pull the bloody splinter out.

So you see, sometimes pulling the plug is the best option… maybe theonly option that’s going to allow you to progress on to bigger and better things.

Okay, here’s where I’m coming from... • According to Martin College, 78% of Australians are unhappy in their jobs.

Quit your job if you’re unhappy

• Galaxy Research has revealed that 53% of Australian workers did not plan their careers but fell into them.

a bit. Then you’ll heal up nicely. You’ll be pain free, clear of mind; ready to rock.

Someone has to buy the food, keep the lights on, put petrol in the 4x4, pay for darling daughter’s dance classes, keep the Foxtel hooked up, pick up the tab for dental visits, stump up for the footy tickets, etc…

Planning has the double benefit of giving you something to look forward to. You don’t have to tell your colleagues (in fact it’s deliciously Machiavellian to conceal it from them until the day comes) but you should talk it over with your nearest and dearest.

The point is a direct one: if you’re unhappy at work, why stick it out? Give some thought to quitting your job and doing something else (continues below…)

Who’s going to pay for all that if you up and quit your job?

Seems to me that being in a destructive relationship with your employer is no different to being in a destructive relationship with a partner or spouse.

You’re resourceful, inventive. You’ll think of something. You stand more chance of thinking of something with your mojo back in residence.

Like I’ve said before, sharing your goals with a loved one makes them real. You get a sense of relief when you do it. This is ‘a thing’ now. I’m going to quit my job. I’m committing to the idea. I’m going to do it on my terms.

Let’s say you spend 40 hours a week at work. Let’s say you work for 48 weeks of the year. That’s a hefty investment of your time and energy. Some people see more of their colleagues than they do of their families.

Look, I’m not saying be impetuous about this – as gratifying as it might sound to fire off a sweary salvo in your boss’s direction before clearing out your drawers.

In any case, I quote the data only to help me make a point.

So why put up with being miserable? *face palm*—because you have bills to pay, dear reader! You can’t just get your coat and storm out

Well… you are.

I’m saying give some thought to it. As in: ‘plan’ to quit. If you plan to leave your job, you can easily survive some short term financial pain. It’s the equivalent of dabbing Savlon where the splinter used to be. It stings for

But quitting can be a positive thing. It’s an act of bravery. It shows that you’re not afraid to put your happiness first. And if you think that resigning from your job is letting your family down in some way; consider this: you might be letting them down more by denying them quality time with a happier, more chilledout version of you. Let me ask you: How many evenings and weekends have you spent staring through your partner and kids, preoccupied with work? How many times have you found yourself wasting entire nights obsessing over something that didn’t go your way in the office, or made you lose face in front of colleagues? How would family life improve if a cheerier you bounded through the door every evening? What if you suddenly got your mojo back; found yourself with more energy and a greater sense of purpose? What effect would this have on your marriage, your family life and your relationship with your kids?

So how do you plan to quit? Three-quarters of Aussies are unhappy in their job. If you’re one of them, here’s how to get control of the situation: 1. Get your ‘black swan plan’ in place. This will help you prepare financially for any life-changing event. But the most important part of the plan is to have at least four months’ worth of your take home salary stashed somewhere you can get at it quickly. This cash will buy you thinking time. 18 Australian Business For Sale ®

2. Assemble your War Cabinet. Explain your intention to dear friends and family. These people love you. They want to help you. They may not have a bunch of ‘plug n play’ ideas for you, but just talking it over with them might spark off a thought, or raise something important you hadn’t considered. 3. Give your boss a long notice period. You don’t have to give a month’s notice. You can give three months – like a friend of mine did in London. Once she told her boss she planned to leave, a weight lifted and she became a new person. She no longer felt hopeless. She felt empowered. She had renewed purpose. And she had time to plan her next move without having to be surreptitious about it. 4. Don’t panic. You are resourceful. You will survive. Panicking will lead you to take the first job you get offered, so that there’s no break in your salary. Goodbye frying pan. Hello fire. 5. Take a break from the madness. Bizarre as it sounds; you’ll need to grieve for a bit after you quit your job. You are losing a big thing in your life. You’ll need to come to terms with that loss. Get a change of scenery somewhere for a week, contemplate the past, take the positive out of it, and close the chapter. You’ll be surprised at how restorative this can be. 6. Accept that you may need to start again, lower down the food chain. Your happiness might mean taking a pay cut, losing the company car, health care and other perks. Don’t worry. These are 21st century illusions. The

shackles of servitude. You can live without them. 7. Tune in to Radio Esky. Far from being a lousy quitter, you are about to hand yourself a rare opportunity to do something you love. Your instinct is on permanent standby, waiting to guide you to the pursuit that will have you turning cartwheels of joy every morning. Tune in and listen to what it’s trying to tell you…

At what point does your life belong to you? What could you achieve if all that negative energy turned positive? Ready to quit? No? Okay – well no great shakes. Go here for ways to keep hold of your job if quitting is not an option. And come back here on Saturday where I’ll show you how to hypnotise your boss into giving you a pay rise…

You might think that ‘just quitting’ is a simplistic and irresponsible way of looking at this problem.

Toodle pip!

Well, you’re right, to a degree. But we’re humans. We’re emotional beings. How much work-based misery are you prepared to take? How much can you take? This much?

E-commerce Ethanol Fireplace Business I have been operating and running this business for the past 2 ½ years part time, on average 2 or 3 hours a day, along with my lawn mowing business. This business could be run really well by a stay at home parent with a bit more time to develop leads. This is an online shop which sells ethanol fireplaces. I have also taken the fireplaces into shopping centres to sell during the winter months, as well as displaying at Grand Designs Expo 2011, 2012. An ethanol fireplace is a fire which burns methylated spirits. A “carbon

neutral” form of heating. We are the sole distributor in Australia and New Zealand for the A-Fire brand of remote controlled ethanol burner. Our sales have averaged $50,000 pa over the past 2 years. The margins are between 10 and 20%. Profit at present about 20% of t/o $10,000. With all the hard work done I can see the profit increasing to 30-35% over the next year, with turnover at $90,000 more than achievable. Very low overheads. My reason for selling is, I need to return to the UK to be nearer to my aging parents. Owner does not want to be contacted by agents or advertisers.

Lawn/Garden Maintenance



Established Lawn Maintenance Business Trading 25yrs Great opportunity to run your own business. I have been operating this business with my wife for 13 years and the owners before me had it for 8 years. Our first year turnover was $50,000. After 6 years we had grown to $1,000,000. At this point I took the decision then to scale back the turnover. The past 5 years we have traded at $450,000 on average turnover at 35% profit margin. The business would suit a husband and wife team or it could blend well into an existing company structure, where some economy of scale would

increase profits. The Business’ main work is contact gardening and lawn mowing, some of the lawn mowing work is subcontracted out, and we have 3 part time cleaners tackling the cleaning work on the sites we garden. We look after about 120 sites in an area South of Wollongong and North of Kiama, all around Lake Illawarra area. The great thing about this area is we always get enough rain to make the grass grow. My reason for selling is I need to return to the UK to be nearer to my aging parents. Owner does not want to be contacted by agents or advertisers.

WELL ESTABLISHED & POTENTIAL TO GROW A unique opportunity exists to purchase a long established Transport Business that has a more than solid reputation within the industry and with the loyal customer base that it has acquired. Operating from a country centre in the South West Slopes region of NSW (approx 2 hours from Canberra CBD), this Transport Provider has a fleet of prime movers and trailers that provide both specialist delivery requirements as well as general freight. In addition to the refrigerated and general transport services which form the core part of the business, this very profitable transport company owns and operates a building materials division which complements the mainstream business by providing additional back loading opportunities and profitable return trips to its country depot. The Building Materials Division is an integral part of the business and contributes substantially to the profitability of the company.

Profit has been consistent over the last 10 years. The Depot, which is owned by the company, has a land area of 10,000 sqm. Buildings occupy approx 2,700 sqm of the site. The freehold Depot would be included as part of the overall sale. The buildings on the site include a large and modern administration office, 2 warehouses and a large workshop and hardstand area with 2 truck service bays. The warehouses also provide additional revenue from long standing storage customers. This Transport Company offers an excellent investment opportunity, and with guaranteed returns, a suitable acquisition for someone looking to migrate to Australia. Further information and financial details would be provided after confidentiality requirements have been completed.

The business specialises in the high growth snack food area and also produces a wide product range spread across several market sectors. The freehold business premises were purpose built insuring very efficient production. The facility also includes excess freezer and chiller capacity.

South Western NSW

The current owner has developed and invested in highly proficient operating systems allowing the business to operate with very few employees and the production flexibility for it to be managed remotely. The business has established a strong base and has been showing consistent growth over the last 4 years with exciting new business opportunities currently under development. The business has a running stock of approx $100K. Product has been exported previously and current marketing conditions have seen an increase in the domestic market. Chinese tourists have played a large part in the development of this domestic market, which would indicate future export options in this direction. This is a great chance to take up a life changing opportunity in a town small enough for a real sense of community (population 8,000 plus), but large enough to offer excellent medical and educational facilities plus all the amenities for good, healthy country living. The business provides an established and substantial income with the potential for further capital growth. It also offers an excellent investment opportunity with guaranteed returns, a suitable acquisition for someone looking to migrate to Australia plus the added bonus of a wonderful lifestyle.
