Every once in a while we will include guest posts from other entrepreneurs who are making their own dent in the universe.  If you’d like to write a guest post for us please check our guest post guidelines but if you’d like to promote crap, please don’t.

More specifically;

  • We write about growing your business and business opportunities
  • We write about improving  processes and controls, so you can spend more time growing your business
  • We write about strategy, marketing and finance – so you know exactly what steps you need to take
  • We write about entrepreneurship, leadership and taking your business to the next level

Boring bit about disclosures:

The Big Red Tomato Company is a commercial organisation. Which means that we make money from selling stuff.

From time to time, we will recommend cool products, books or services which we have tried, read or use. If we recommend these things we do so because we believe they will make a difference to your business, your earnings or your life. Sometimes we may get a small % commission if you buy using these any of the links on these pages, sometimes we won’t.

Either way, if we don’t like something we won’t recommend it. If you do decide you want to purchase something though, please do use the links as it helps pay for beer.

We hope you like our site and buy our products or services, but if you don’t, that’s OK too.

Thanks for visiting.
