Minuteman Press Franchise in Welshpool, Perth, Western Australia Celebrates 17 Years, Shares Growth Strategies

Minuteman Press International Inc

Rod Hambley has owned his Minuteman Press printing franchise in Welshpool since March of 2005. In May of 2021, Rod purchased 15-year independent print shop Images on Paper. Following the acquisition, Rod merged staff from both businesses and has been producing more in-house orders with the equipment that was added. The result has been doubling and even tripling monthly sales in the months following the acquisition. This includes a record sales month for his 17-year business, Rod says, “We’ve clearly had sustained business growth since the acquisition. Sales for both new and existing clients are in line with past turnover for both.” Welcome to Minuteman Press in Welshpool Prior to buying Minuteman Press in Welshpool, Rod worked in the banking industry. He shares, “I was in banking for 25 years and worked as Branch Manager for several banks. I found Minuteman Press at a franchise show and in gaining a rapport with the Regional Vice President, I saw this as a viable option I could venture to when finished at the bank.” Under Rod’s leadership and following the acquisition of Images on Paper, Minuteman Press in Welshpool has continued to grow its core business. Rod says, “Our core business is always in high demand. We offer our clients high quality printing from our wide format machine which produces posters, signage, and stickers of all shapes and sizes. Our digital machine prints booklets, flyers, business cards, and much more. We also still run an offset machine for NCR Books, envelopes, and spot colour work that are all still in demand.” “It is important for local businesses to market and promote themselves. We are able to design and produce the items they need for those purposes and they also need printing of workbooks, forms, and plenty of other items for their operations as well.” -Rod Hambley, owner, Minuteman Press, Welshpool Acquiring Images on Paper As for how the acquisition of Images on Paper came about, it was a combination of Rod being proactive in looking at local acquisition targets in his area as well as the local Minuteman Press outreach campaign initiated by Regional Vice President Glenn Coyle. Rod says, “We have had our eye on this business in the area for a number of years among others. I have done smaller acquisitions over the years that were successful as I still have some clients from those. I saw Images on Paper as a good prospect where the owner might be looking to retire, and Glenn Coyle also identified them through an acquisition campaign.” Glenn Coyle says, “I reached out to Images on Paper and set up a confidential meeting with the owner Harry and his wife Robyn. We chatted for a while and after we got to know each other and I learned about their business, we all moved forward with a plan for Rod to acquire the business if all went well so Harry and Robyn could sell the business and retire.” Glenn adds, “Once I looked over the paperwork they provided, I met with Harry and Robyn again and told them my plan to introduce their business to Rod. They were happy for me to do this. After Rod met with Harry and Robyn, things went well, and they ultimately came to an agreement on price, terms, equipment, staff, and changeover date.” Rod shares, “The benefit to the seller was to save on brokerage costs, and the benefit to me was the increased sales as well as merging staff and added equipment for in-house jobs.” Advice for Others When asked what advice he would give to others looking to own a business, Rod answers, “Be prepared to work hard and find good staff. Also, you should ensure that you have steady cash flow and enough for a rainy day or two.” Minuteman Press in Welshpool is located at U2 119 Welshpool Rd., Welshpool, WA 6106.

ChainPort Integrates World’s Fastest EVM, Telos

Telos Foundation

With the ongoing growth and adoption of blockchain, cross-chain bridges are in demand more now than ever before. Chainport provides a painless way to move assets from one network to another. Access to multiple blockchains from a single bridge is a significant improvement over the multiple limitations associated with chain specific bridges. It provides an incredible improvement in user experience, especially because it eliminates the need to familiarize oneself with multiple bridge UIs. Plus, the simple ingress that Chainport provides to the tEVM’s growing ecosystem is particularly useful for DeFi and NFT enthusiasts. These enthusiasts can now easily move assets to the credibly decentralized tEVM and utilize its Ecosystem. Powered by the tEVM, dApps deliver the world’s fastest, most inexpensive NFT / DeFi transactions, and without the worry of congestion or the added cost of front running. ChainPort does an incredible job delivering on users' bridging needs and because of this the Telos community is super excited to add this new layer of cross-chain mobility. Chainport is currently live on Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Fuse, Fantom, Moon River, and is soon to go live on Heco, Okex Chain, Aurora, Arbitrum, Cardano and Solana. Being able to move assets in and out of this vast list of ecosystems is a huge benefit for all users. “Chainport’s rapid adoption is due to its super easy-to-use UI and prominent level of security. It makes porting from one chain to another as simple as connecting your wallet and performing a single transaction. With Chainport in place, we can now make our ludicrously fast and inexpensive tEVM powered DeFi and NFT marketplaces available to multiple well-established ecosystems. This is most definitely something to get excited about!” Justin Giudici, Acting CEO at Telos Foundation With the Telos team already keen on the future implementation of multi-chain NFT transfers it is overly exciting to know that NFT bridging is already on the Q2 road map for Chainport. This will be especially useful because Telos is currently laser focused on building a robust NFT marketplace. The chain had just recently announced its new partnership with one of the most successful NFT marketplaces in crypto, Byt.io. Telos and Byt are set to build a next level NFT marketplace and multi-chain NFT bridging is most definitely the next evolutionary step of this trajectory. Byt powered by the tEVM will offer minting and trading at prices and speeds not yet seen before and NFT enthusiasts from all ecosystems will naturally gravitate towards these user-oriented benefits. Another interesting Chainport product which is on their Q1 roadmap is their insurance program. Insurance on digital assets is a service that absolutely makes perfect sense. Especially for high value assets. Services like this will help change the landscape and help build confidence in the marketplace. About ChainPort Chainport is a next-gen blockchain bridge that provides custodian-level security with real interoperability, allowing instant hops across chains at a click. With a current 30% monthly growth, Chainport has positioned itself as one of the top five largest bridges in the space.

Here are the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2022, according to nearly 1 million employees

Great Place to Work - USA

Amid a record number of resignations and a reprioritization of American lives, the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® didn’t woo employees with shiny perks, but focused on the essentials of strong company culture. The 100 Best Companies prioritized employee well-being and fostered cultures of inclusion, purpose, genuine listening, caring and empathy. And in return — according to America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study of more than 870,000 confidential employee survey responses, and data from Great Place to Work ® — the employee experience was as good as ever among the 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2022. “Best Companies’ leadership has never been more necessary,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture. “As workers struggle with the Great Resignation, burnout and COVID disruptions, these exceptional companies offer workplace experiences as strong as prior to the pandemic.” Cisco topped the list for the second year in a row. The top 10 companies to work for are: 1. Cisco 2. Hilton 3. Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. 4. Salesforce 5. NVIDIA Corporation 6. Accenture 7. Rocket Companies 8. American Express 9. David Weekley Homes 10. Capital One Great Place to Work celebrates 25 years of determining the 100 Best list based on data from its proprietary Trust Index™ employee experience survey. Of note are four organizations who’ve made the list all 25 years: Cisco, Wegmans, Marriott International, Inc., and Publix Super Markets, Inc. What it took to be the Best this year was the ability to adapt to constant change and support employees’ full lives in and outside of work, which includes their families and communities. And regardless of their type of job or where they worked. “These companies get that ‘place’ is wherever their employees are sitting or standing, and they are committed to make that place equitable, safe and productive,” Bush says. “Their commitment to genuinely care for their people through trust, inclusion, purpose and meaningful flexibility for life circumstances goes beyond surface-level perks and is a model for the market to follow.” They encouraged employees to bring their authentic selves to work – and not deny who they are – through diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging programs. Nearly 90% of employees feel like they can be themselves, as opposed to just 64% at an average workplace. And the Best also took steps to connect the organization’s values and goals to employees’ jobs to ensure their work had meaning and purpose – what many workers quit in search of. From listening sessions to employee resource groups (ERGs), the 100 Best took action to ensure all employees felt included. They expanded mental health assistance, elder care support, childcare and well-being resources. They provided financial and professional assistance after layoffs and furloughs, and COVID care during the pandemic. The proof is in the numbers The outcome of great cultures is not guesswork. The 100 Best Companies outperformed the Russell 3000 Index by 3.3 times. According to Great Place to Work research, compared to their industry peers, employees at the 100 Best are: 5.5 times more likely to help recruit 2.2 times more committed to staying with their organization Half as likely to leave their company Best Companies create aspirational workplaces where: 9 out of 10 would strongly endorse their company to friends & family 9 out of 10 feel cared for 4 out of 5 employees feel psychologically & emotionally healthy 4 out of 5 look forward to coming to work 4 out of 5 find meaning in their jobs About the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® Great Place to Work® selected the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2022 based on feedback collected through America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study of over 870,000 employee survey responses and data from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations representing more than 6.1 million employees across the U.S. Company rankings are derived from 60 employee experience questions within the Great Place to Work Trust Index™ survey. Read the full methodology. To get on this list next year, start here. About Great Place to Work® Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, it has surveyed more than 100 million employees worldwide and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust.
