Grow A Small Business Podcast

Sep 25, 2022

In this episode, I interview Steve Miller the Founder and CEO of Total Freight Solutions based in Sunshine Coast, Australia. Steve has set up his own business to help suppliers and customers get the best deal.

From being employed by a major courier firm, Steve has decided to leave his former job to pursue bigger opportunities by creating his own business. Total Freight Solutions was established in 2005 and has been running for over 17 years. Owned and run by Tasmanians and the very best team in the state.

Steve has said that growing a small business requires constant monitoring in order to improve and become productive in business growth. So he says, “Don't settle for mediocrity by just doing the same thing all the time.”
