BRW on entrepreneurial newsagents

BRW this week has a two page article abut newsagents and life ten years after deregulation. It’s a good piece by Jane Lindhe as it appropriately covers the challenges of the channel – Australia Post, supplier control and the dilution of soft gambling traffic.

While I am conflicted since I was interviewed for the story, it’s great for newsagents to be featured in this way. It represents a shift from the complaining about history to genuinely moving forward. It focuses on us acting as business people rather than process workers.

Newsagents have good reason to feel proud about this interest from BRW, we’re a legitimate and moving channel. It’s an article worth sharing with your bank manager and other ‘stakeholders’.

The article and the quotes from Jordan Cowen and Paul Martin show that there are entrepreneurial newsagents out there pursuing a bright future for the shingle.
