Tom Waterhouse, Australian businessman and member of one of Australia’s great racing dynasties joins Brett on this week’s Be Better Off Show Podcast.
As a fourth-generation bookmaker, Tom shares how his family’s affinity for racing impacted and shaped him, with his father and grandfather doubling as career mentors.
“We grew from being the smallest bookies on the track to the largest in Australia”
Tom also discusses the importance of being flexible and agile in business, and drops a few hints on taking risks, whether in business, or whilst taking a bet. Business environments are extremely volatile, so positioning and fortifying your business to endure environmental shifts or the introduction of new legislation is essential to small business longevity.
“Always protect yourself from going broke and be lean enough to pivot your business”
