Is this still a problem for you? If you haven't updated your app, do it now. Being able to check in and prove your vaccination at the same time saves time and hassle. It's certainly made our lives easier when we're seeing clients.

You might hear about the big stories, but do you know about the little stories? Some of these Australian small businesses could have been doing it tough because of the pandemic, but at least they had something they could fall back on. What about now?
Oh yes, please do this everyone! After a week of having to trawl through people's various forms of vaccination proofs (and they're all a little different from each other). This will hopefully simplify that process. Finally.
Getting your hands on Friday drinks will be a whole lot easier today as people across NSW are be able to use a new vaccine passport system for easy access to shops, pubs and cafes — after a big chan...
Why do people harass small business about following government regulations? Aren't things difficult enough as it is? Although we've told clients that vaccination is a current condition of entry (and most people comply), there's a vocal minority who just make it so difficult. Despite it potentially resulting in a fine (for them and for us), they brazenly say they don't care - and yet they come to us for help and demand that we help them? What's up with that?
Woooh.... special buys. It's hard to not get excited but the 'problem' with these promotions is that by the time you get there, there's none left - and in some stores, there were never any there to begin with. Special buys = special disappointment.
Would you be surprised if interest rates went up? Interest rates have been low for quite some time - even before the economy was hit by the pandemic and the various restrictions. But it won't be like this for ever.

Personal life behind public office splashed all over the internet. Even if you didn't know (or want to know) much about him before, investigative reporters will be sure to fix that. No stone unturned, no skeleton left standing in the closet. The loss of personal privacy only intensifies the higher up you go.
What's wrong with perks and pensions for politicians? If we can justify giving government benefits for unemployment, we should be able to justify perks and pensions to those who work and contribute to society.
Public office is a tough career path. Politicians endure the loss of personal privacy, constant public scrutiny and personal attacks. On the other hand, the keyboard warriors comment with relative anonymity from the internet shadows, when they themselves are incapable, unqualified and would never be popular enough to stand or be elected to hold office.
Some thoughts on the premier's resignation. Wouldn't go as far as to say she's undermined the ICAC, but it was her press conference and her opportunity to make her last public statements as premier. She's just living by her own rules and expectations, and naturally there would be a sense of sadness, irony and maybe bitterness at how things have unfolded, especially the timing. Consider Premier Nick Greiner who originally established the ICAC only to be ousted by them (but later cleared of any wrongdoing). No one is above the law.
Graphs make it scary. It's interesting that banks raise this as a concern when it's the banks that allow this kind of lending/spending. If the banks didn't lend, then people couldn't spend and we'll have a whole different kind of 'problem' on our hands.
Does it matter if foreign owned retailers received assistance from the Australian government? Presumably they pay tax in Australia and they employ Australians. Wasn't it all about supporting the Australian economy?
While rising house prices are pushing home ownership out of reach for younger generations, paying down a mortgage is a growing problem for those at the other end of the property ladder. As more people...
Between the scammers and Facebook, who really are the bigger scammers? Of course it must be so difficult for this business having to deal with the scammers, but it also doesn't sound like she's getting much help from Facebook either. Dealing with some of these tech giants, like Facebook or Google, is unbelievably and notoriously frustrating. Our clients complain about it all the time, and we've also experienced some of this frustration ourselves. Despite being called 'customer service' or 'help desk', it's very hard to get hold of someone who can or who is willing to assist, and almost impossible to get "service" or get "help".

Casual racism? It's curious how there's public outrage when someone makes public remarks that are considered unacceptable, but in reality, it's a true reflection of what the public actually thinks but don't say (out loud). Is that why it's so easy for some people just to say these things 'casually' that it becomes 'casual racism'?
"The court found that, by creating a public Facebook page and posting content, the outlets had facilitated, encouraged and thereby assisted the publication of comments from third-party Facebook users, and they were, therefore, publishers of those comments."
Watch this space! We think this decision is going to have huge ramifications for businesses and organisations, including the likes of Facebook and Google who maintain/publish reviews featuring comments from others.
Woke to this, yes shocking but not entirely unexpected either. Although it's Interesting that this coincided with El Salvador becoming the first country to accept Bitcoin as legal tender. The market was bullish when El Salvador originally made its announcement. So what about now? Some see crash, some see opportunity. Is it the right time to buy?
Would you do this? Does it work both ways? The great divide within the community. Anti-mask and anti-vax avoiding pro-mask and pro-vax, while pro-mask and pro-vax avoiding anti-mask and anti-vax. What about those who are anti-mask but pro-vax, or pro-mask but anti-vax? 🤔

Encouraging statistics if the vaccine rollout is the gateway to returning to some form of normality. With increasing numbers leading towards the majority of the population being vaccinated, what will it mean for those who choose to remain unvaccinated?
Worried about housing affordability and thinking about buying a property with friends? It's not as simple or as straightforward as you might think. Aside from the financial and social complications, there can be quite significant legal ramifications arising from different situations, especially if it's not set up properly.
From previously announcing that they were recruiting, Australia Post now has suspended some services due to staff requiring isolation. Just making life challenging for some e-commerce retailers during the restrictions.

Important milestones for New South Wales. The premier has repeatedly asked and encouraged people, businesses and the whole community to 'get ready' for the state to be re-opened. More important announcements to come, but the real question is - are you ready?

More Australian retailers doing it tough. If last year's restrictions caught many by surprise, should this year's restrictions have too? What about possible restrictions in the future? Even with a rollout of the vaccine, the reality is that public health orders that require businesses (especially retailers with physical shops) to close is a real possibility? How do we know? It's happened before. It's happening now. It can happen again.

Billion dollar businesses like Wesfarmers doing it tough? No, the scale of their operations means the effect of the lockdown is multiplied, but they're still doing ok (more than ok) and will likely survive and possibly even thrive during these challenging times. Small business on the other hand is a very different story. The number of shops and offices closed around Parramatta (which is probably the same in other CBDs around Sydney) is what's most concerning. A lot of them aren't going to be coming back.

These scams probably always existed, but since the pandemic there's been a surge in the demand for pets, especially puppies, which means the number of people being scammed and the amounts being scammed have also increased. Be careful out there.
