(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  

Our last survey results...
With 2015 rapidly coming to an end, what has 2015 been like for your business - good, bad, no comment? What are your hopes and dreams for 2016.

  • 2015 Very average. Just hope for better in 2016.
    Being a realist, and seeing the current Australian economy I doubt things will get much better in the short term.
  • It has been good towards the end of the year. Hoping the pace keeps up for 2016. Construction is increasing once again on the Gold Coast. (Harry, Varsity Graphics) 
  • Business has been pretty good, we are on par with last year, probably a little better. So in the current economy I think we can expect some more of the same moving forward. Its all about making the most out of the dollar at the moment, making the business more efficient and streamlined to increase the bottom line. Work smarter rather than harder. 
  • This is by far the best year ever. Up 50% on previous calendar year. Made some changes to staff etc.
    Would expect next year to be good bur realisticly not expecting anywhere near as big an increase. To consolidate and match this years would still be a good result.
  • Not bad, Done OK this year and hope to do better in 2016.
  • Considering the state of the world and all the problems of the Middle East, Europe and China, we need a good government to manage a very unstable situation, Thank God we don't have a Labor government and their Union buddies to stuff it up even more, just hope the Coalition do the job we expect of them - so far, so good. Business has been alright bit no fireworks, I expect 2016 to be much the same but if business confidence goes backwards, it's going to be harder to meet our targets.

A glass of wine
To my friends who enjoy a glass of wineand those who don't and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand: As Ben Franklin said:

In wine there is wisdom,
In beer there is
In water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials,
scientists have demonstrated that if we drink
1 litre of water each day,
at the end of the year we would have absorbed
more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria
found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop annually.
We do NOT run that risk when drinking wine &
(or rum, whiskey or other liquor)
because alcohol has to go through a purification process
of boiling, filtering and fermenting.
Water = Poop,
Wine = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid,
than to drink water and be full of Shit.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information:
