HOLGRO™ helps regional businesses eradicate overwhelm to ensure sustainable, holistic growth

HOLGRO™

Running a business can be overwhelming and lonely. It can put pressure on finances, family and our overall health and wellbeing.

We pay different professionals to help guide us, we network, and we seek out as much information as our brain can handle – but alas, there’s always more to do and never enough time, money or resources to get us to our dreams fast enough.

Eventually the stress leads to overwhelm which impacts every area of our personal and professional life.

So, what is missing?

How, in a digital age can we still be so disconnected and overwhelmed? We KNOW we should eat well and exercise more. We KNOW we need to spend money on marketing and keep our finances in order, on top of be a great leader for our teams. Yet, as a society, we wear overwhelm as a badge of honour!

So how do you grow your enterprise without breaking your mind, body or business?

From the Founder:

HOLGRO™ was born out of my time in regional Australia. Over the past 17 years, I have spent much of my professional career helping build these businesses and communities.

The macro-environmental forces affecting regional Australia have been highlighted more than ever this year. While the distance from metro areas has deeply influenced the types of industries, economies and supply chains available and has induced the culture and perceived liveability, COVID-19, in particular, has forced many to reassess, reinvent and seek professional assistance.

Our vision is to help grow the long-term prosperity of regional Australia – to foster change, cultivate balance, inspire evolution and activate potential; empowering these Australians – for the entire Nation.

Through our commitment to investing in research, leadership, innovation and learning, HOLGRO™ aims to ‘Cultivate regional leaders’ and provide a solution to this dilemma.

Our digital, community-centric model addresses:

1. Isolation, Accessibility and Integration
2. Health impacts (Mental, Physical, Business/Financial)
3. Economic, Workforce and Business Development

HOLGRO™ threads together the usually disparate elements of health and business, connecting clients to a powerful web of positive change and growth.

Come with us on a journey of wellness, inside and out, for a better Australia!

Why do we need HOLGRO?

With a staggering 2.3 million active businesses in this country, Australia has adopted a culture built on hustle – but it isn’t sustainable – it’s dangerous.

It also affects our economy and productivity. Physical ill-health and serious mental illness are estimated to cost the economy around 4 % of GDP annually – that equates to A$60 billion.

Various studies indicate entrepreneurs are 50% more likely to report having a mental health condition. While 88% of founders acknowledge their physical wellbeing directly impacts operations, ‘a lack of physical activity was the biggest cause of dissatisfaction for founders. More than half (56 %) report it was the main reason for feeling overwhelmed.’

This is despite the known links between physical fitness and financial and business success through exercise boosting mood, memory and cognition. Throw in the fact founders work 50% more hours than the average Australian employee, take their work to bed with them and don’t take as much annual leave – we are creating a business culture doomed to fail.

It is the mission of HOLGRO™ to cultivate regional leaders. We are dedicated to ensuring that entrepreneurs are given every tool for success across all facets of business.
