'Fix My Biz' is a new, business-focused reality television series that documents the challenges facing a number of small businesses and, through the expert knowledge of consultants, provides entrepreneurs with practical advice to address their challenges. The show, supported by Nedbank Small Business Services, will air at 5.30pm on e.tv
starting 15 September 2010 at 5.30pm.
The show portrays real businesses that are experiencing challenges faced by the majority of small businesses, making the series valuable. The first season showcases 13 businesses and follows the development of each business as the team of business consultants advises them on issues ranging from marketing, branding and production optimisation to effective fleet control, workplace ergonomics and financial management techniques.
"By getting to the heart of these businesses and offering practical advice and guidance on how to address the issues they are facing, we are effectively extending the services of experienced business consultants to all South African business owners. This should prove invaluable to any aspirant, new or experienced business owner and entrepreneur," says Sibongiseni Ngundze, managing executive of Nedbank Small Business Services.
"While each episode focuses on the challenges of an individual business, the practical advice will be of immense value to any other South African small enterprise as the tools provided via the show will equip entrepreneurs not only to overcome their own immediate business challenges, but also to position themselves for sustainable success and long-term profitability," he concludes.
Nedbank Small Business Services will also be launching an online portal giving small business owners and aspirant entrepreneurs a credible platform from which to network and obtain valuable information pertinent to their sector.
