Let’s admit it. 

 

Western Australia is a rich resource state in terms of oil, gas, and iron ore. We depend so much on these resources that we become comfortable and stagnant. 

 

The truth is that these exports won’t be as valuable as they are today in the next five to ten years. 

 

There’s a need to transition to a more sustainable industry that requires tapping into another resource. But WA has not set a vision or a long-term plan to achieve it. 

 

In today’s pilot episode of The Best In The West, Cam Sinclair of Ammo Marketing joins me to discuss a vacuum of vision and big, bold ideas that both the state and the people can do to change our future. We also dive into entrepreneurship as a viable career path in WA and other fantastic ways for attracting more businesses to the state. 

 

If you’re looking to build a business or working with the government, listen to this podcast as we give some big thinking that you need to hear.
