Northam businesswoman a winner

A Northam businessowner who has a passion to help support other owners has taken out this year's Northam Women in Business bursary.

Enrika Grogan was presented a $5000 award, sponsored by Bendigo Bank, to assist with the expansion and new direction of her already existing business.

Mrs Grogan has rebranded her existing bookkeeping business and plans to build an online business that empowers owners to create a sustainable business.

She said she wanted to help clarifying what was actually going on in customers businesses, how their life and work intersected and leverage technology.

Mrs Grogan and husband Eamon are no strangers to the challenges of running a business, having run their own workplace for more than 11 years.

Mrs Grogan said her personal experiences were one of the reasons she was inspired to help others clarify their business strategy and tactics.

"I am extremely grateful to the Northam Women In Business and Bendigo Bank for this fantastic opportunity and regard it as a privileged responsibility to not only do good in my own business but also in the community," she said.

"I would urge other women out there that have an idea for a business to start thinking now about applying for the 2020 bursary.

"It is a fantastic opportunity and you never know what might happen."

Her business,'Mind Your Money', will provide the regular bookkeeping services such as BAS preparation, payroll set up and processing and software training.

It will also offer services that aid the business owner to map out their business and life goals, understand their numbers and establish metrics so as to achieve those goals.
