ASIC Banned and Disqualified Register

Well I was pleasantly surprised to learn ASIC has a seemingly transparent, accessible online search register of Banned and Disqualified persons and organisations.

ASIC being the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.

Excerpt from ASIC website

Banned and disqualified

The ‘Banned and disqualified’ search provides information about people and organisations that ASIC has disqualified or banned.

Notwithstanding I have founded grievances and continued sceptism over the actions, inaction and effectiveness of ASIC in its role as national regulator for the financial services industry, there is nonetheless a host of information at the website and there are certain legal perimeters which need to be abided by.

Following various Inquiries and present Royal Commission into the banding and financial services industry ASIC have noticeably made changes. It certainly is purporting to be doing its job.

ASIC does, after all, have access to resources in its role which it appears have applied in part to upgrade its service and obligations.

If you are in business, have a company or any financial dealings whatsoever, it is advisable to visit the ASIC website, if only to check media releases.

FREE Online Profit Map Workshop for entrepreneurs and small business owners

4-hour Profit Map Workshop for entrepreneurs and small business owners

REGISTER HERE http://tinyurl.com/cejkytw

Do you have a “profit map” for your business?

If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you had a *dream to start your

own business to honor who you are* and what you want to create in
this life (including *a great income!*). You’ve got the
inspiration, and you’re putting in the perspiration… *but where
is it all going*?

Entrepreneur mentor Ali Brown says, “If you’re just trying to get
clients and customers here and there, and feel like you don’t
have a *focused system* for making this happen, you could be in
big trouble. Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a woman
give up on her entrepreneurial dream, simply because the *money
isn’t coming in*. You see, most small business owners are
floundering because they simply haven’t put together their Profit
Map.”

Well, mark your calendars for *Wednesday, May 15, 2013*. Ali is
giving you access to her *FREE 4-hour workshop* with the coaches
from her online business training program Elevate–and they’re all
going to show you how to *make your Profit Map happen*!

You’ll get a unique mix of *live training, in-depth exercises,
and Q&A* that you can implement immediately in your business.
Ali’s even unveiling some *juicy video footage from her Thrive
Live! training event*–a closed-door workshop she hosted strictly
for members of Elevate.

Go here for all the details and easy sign up:
REGISTER FOR ONLINE WORKSHOP

I’ve attended Ali’s online events myself, and can tell you,
you’re in for a real treat!

P.S. *This online workshop will NOT be repeated*, so register now
and mark your calendar for Wednesday, May 15, starting at 2pm
ET/11am PT!
