YOUR SMALL BUSINESS CAN CREATE A BIG IMPACT
Until now, small business consulting services like Volta have focused on strategies to drive profit. But purpose? Not so much.
So, chances are, you’ve already thought about aligning your small business with a purpose that drives social change. But you shelved the idea because…
Adopting a sustainable profit-for-purpose business model, without specialist support, can look like a lot of extra work. And expense.
Especially if you’re not sure about the impact one small business with a purpose can really have.
Well, here’s the thing…
Small businesses like yours make up 97% of the approximately 2.4 million businesses in Australia.
Even if 50% of them choose to align profit with purpose and become more sustainable – the potential for social impact is massive.
‘Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.’
~ Howard Zinn
Grow a more sustainable small business one step at a time
You don’t need to tackle everything at once to get started as a more sustainable small business. Once you’re clear about your purpose, your first step could be a review of your operational choices, asking questions like:
- What is my bank’s track record on the issues I care about? Financial institutions act when enough of their customers demand change – or leave
- Do my current suppliers have values that align with mine? Simply asking the question can trigger positive change in the broader community
- What can I do next to grow in a sustainable, purposeful way? Hopping on a free call with me will give you some insight…

Convenient, cost-effective support for your small business
As a small business owner, purpose starts with you – but it doesn’t end there. Your purpose impacts every person your business touches – your clients, your employees – even your community.
Having access to sustainable business growth insights will help you strategically integrate your purpose into every aspect of your business operations.
With 11+ years of hands-on small business management, I’ve worn more commercial hats than most.
So, working with me is like hiring a whole team of specialised small business consultants – without the conflicting goals and perspectives, or the cost.
You only deal with (and invest in) one person – me. But you gain access to a broad range of business skills, experience and knowledge that will help you build a sustainable small business, where:
your financial and social goals can co-exist -
as equal partners
you combine profit and purpose to drive social change -
like advancing gender equity or protecting the environment
positive impact for all stakeholders matters -
from your employees and clients, to your local, national, even global community
