The Calculated Gamblers of Business

Packer (father of James)– two names associated with money, power, and fame. They also shared another trait; they were both unremarkable students when it came to academia, possibly due to dyslexia. Did this initial setback at the very beginning of their lives set the course for phenomenal success as business moguls? Perhaps. One thing is for sure, neither Packer nor Branson let anything hold them back. Branson started his entrepreneurial career by advertising popular records in the Student Magazine he founded. He then sold them at a considerably lower price than the other record stores. Not long after that,...

Two Great Men

By Doug Wright It takes a very special person to stand up against an unfair regime, to be a lone figure against an established order brought about by the tyranny of the majority. It takes a very special person with a wholehearted belief that what they’re doing is more than for the benefit of the few – it’s for the benefit of mankind as a whole. History has given us many men and women who are inspirational teachers, wise leaders, beacons of light who shine truth and justice into the darkest of places. More often than not they appear...

The Bulldogs create history because they never gave up

By Doug Wright What a win. What a week. Who’d have thought it? There were tears and jubilation in the crowd and on the field as the Western Bulldogs ended their drought and hailed the start of a new era, by beating the Sydney Swans in the AFL Grand Final by 22 points a couple of weeks ago. Nearly 100,000 fans jammed into the Melbourne Cricket Ground, while the fourth largest television audience ever – three million people – tuned in to watch the match from across Australia.
