Success Stories 0 Comments

Being employed seems secure, but it can actually be risky business. One moment you’re relishing the perks of a cush job: a steady cash flow, benefits, paid vacations, the works. The next, a layoff could banish you to the dark recesses of unemployment, feverishly scouring job listings for your next ‘tour of duty.’ To avid surfer, father, husband and homeowner James Schramko, this foreboding uncertainty loomed all too close. He realized waiting for the hammer to fall was no way to live. His new venture, Superfastbusiness, was his out.

No one’s saying running a small business doesn’t have its risks, but it comes with the reassurance that you’ve seized your own destiny, create your own hours… and have plenty of time left over to catch some waves.

Catch a glimpse into James’ entrepreneurial journey, crafting his own success on the sandy shores of Manly, Australia.
