Welcome to Fulworks we support and promote enterprising Australian business men and women


Fulworks Australia aims to showcase an inspired community of business people from all walks of life, from all parts of our country, whose stories may inspire you to a life of enterprise! As well, their lessons in leadership are a great example to us all.

Australia has about 2.1 million businesses, more than 95% of which are small businesses. Around 2 million of those employed fewer than 20 staff – around 1.3 million of them are sole traders who do not employ any staff. Most of those small to medium enterprises had an annual turnover less than $2million. (ABS June 2011).

In 30 years of journalism, 10 years working with the Telstra Business Awards programs and in her weekly ‘Enterprising Women’ column for the AFR Weekend Fin Review (www.afr.com.au) Anne Fulwood has met, befriended and shared the stories of hundreds of business owners.

These enterprising Australians go unheralded in their everyday lives. They employ people, provide opportunities to learn, they innovate, bring up families, and add character to communities. Even if you don’t aspire to entrepreneurship – just hearing how people make a living, is enough to brighten your day.
