Kamal Aeri | Entrepreneur
Get your head in the game, says Kamal Aeri. “It’s my business mantra and it’s kept me in the lead all these years. As the leader of your company, you need to portray a winning state of mind and exude positive energy. A good attitude is contagious and inspires others. If you need to fake it until you make it, so be it,” he says.
Ask Kamal’s colleagues and they will tell you Kamal’s positive attitude is contagious. Kamal moved to Australia in 2003, his first job at a bakery. But Kamal’s experience in strategic taxation, business and accounting advisory services, as well as in specialised areas such as self-managed super funds and financial and succession planning drew him into a whole new world. Kamal prides himself on nurturing client relationships and works closely with his clients to gain a full appreciation and understanding of their business. This is used to improve not only business performance but to plan for a profitable and sustainable future.
“Many people get too emotionally invested in their small business venture without focusing on growth and profitability. Everyone has the opportunity to be a successful entrepreneur, but the majority of people aren’t cut out for it,” he says. “You must always be prepared to walk away.”
The way I see it
Growth… Business growth is merely a measure of choice. Development assumes expansion, expansion embodying growth in potential. The two work together hand in hand, implying an understanding of an existing level of skill or experience, which can be measurably improved or grown to the benefit of the business.
