Four years ago, Daniel Flynn had a big idea. Some would say an epiphany. Appalled to read that 900 million people had no access to safe water and equally angered by the idiocy of bottled water in a country where the tap is safe to drink from, the 19-year-old university student wanted to do something.
He decided to start his own bottled water company (as if that market place wasn’t already over-crowded!) that would channel all its surplus revenues into funding water projects rather than making a profit.
This is another inspiring story of starting a business and doing the world of good. Not unlike my fireside chat with another social entrepreneur in Rebecca from Streat late last year.
PLUS in this episode of the Small Business Big Marketing show I help listener Christian promote his local bookkeeping business having been made redundant from his full-time job PLUS I share what’s happening inside the Small Business Big Marketing Forum.
Stuck in the old world of marketing as the new world goes flying by?

Timbo here from Australia’s #1 marketing show.
Boy is there plenty of marketing gold floating around the Small Business Big Marketing HQ at present.
Thought it was time to share it round.
Read up as I cover what works on Facebook (it’s a tad rude!), some great news from a recent guest, there’s an invite to a webinar I’m co-hosting with Andrew Griffiths, Netregistry have a 4-hour online marketing workshop coming up and plenty more.
I wrote this book about five years ago. It contains 49 marketing ideas, supported by examples, to help you create more awareness around your business, attract more customers and close more deals. What I love is the fact that it was written during my push in to marketing a business online, so it contains a lot of old-school marketing ideas as well as new ones. Something we don’t see a lot of these days!
