A week in review


This week was an interesting week for SMBs: mental health was a big topic this week, MYOB was in the headlines and Jack Corbett had a chat about going from high school drop out to successful entrepreneur. 

Dynamic Business picked the best headlines of the week.


Putting yourself first this World Mental Health day 

The nature of owning a small business is a challenging combination of highs and lows. However, when financial, managerial and personal pressures increase, mental health considerations can often be overlooked.

A survey of close to 500 small business owners by Everymind found that respondents faced many of the factors contributing to poor mental health and often shared stresses unique to the sector.

MYOB subject of $1.7bn private equity bid

MYOB Group says US private equity firm KKR & Co has launched a conditional $1.75 billion takeover offer for the Australian accounting software provider after buying a 19.9 per cent stake.

Jack Corbett: From high school drop out to successful entrepreneur 

Jack Corbett has an impressive resume. At just 27 he is the 2017 Young Entrepreneur of the year, Managing Director and founder of ISR Training and was recently on Shark Tank.

Corbett went from a 14-year old school dropout, to running multiple businesses and consulting with some of the biggest organisations around the world.

Have a great weekend and tune in next week!
