“I attribute a great deal of the growth of my business to the leadership and business training I have received from Alison”

Hi, I'm Alison
CEO of Vidotto Group and Push! training, business strategist & mentor, founder of Thrive! Business Community, published author, professional speaker, founder of the Australian Charity for the Children of Vietnam (ACCV), wife and a mother of six.
While studying for my MBA I learned of the staggering number of small business failures and so I created Push! Business Training & Mentoring. I'm passionate about working with entrepreneurs and small business owners to equip them with the skills they need to succeed.
I run mentoring and training programs both in the real world and online. When COVID-19 hit I was concerned about the impact on small business owners and in response I created Thrive! Business Community Membership to help entrepreneurs take their business online.
I am very keen to share the business and leadership skills I have used to raise a close family, be a strong member of the community, build a successful business, and to run an international charity.
I’m pleased to say I have successfully run a number of businesses for close to thirty years. This has included navigating the path through a recession, floods, GFC and a global downturn in the mining & resources industry (our primary business).
I am both passionate and committed in my work as a business mentor. I have worked with many business owners via Push! Business Training, Australian Institute of Management, QUT Fostering Executive Women (FEW) in business, and the Queensland government programme, Mentoring for Growth.
“Alison’s professional abilities as a mentor and trainer have provided me with the solutions to begin accomplishing my goals. Alison has challenged me to think beyond the square and because of this I am now constantly looking at how I can improve my business for myself but more importantly for my clients. As a leader, mentor and trainer Alison always has integrity and honesty”

Why Work With Me?
Business Review Australia reported that small businesses that have an experienced mentor will survive at twice the rate of those who don’t.
Unfortunately they also report that 42% of small business owners never engage a mentor.
Having someone there with knowledge and experience, someone who has your back, can make everything so much easier for you and your business.
I’m extremely passionate about mentoring entrepreneurs. Far too many face the challenges of running a business in isolation. There is little doubt that having a mentor can significantly increase the likelihood of success..

Living the entrepreneurial life...
One of the many wonderful things about running your own business is having the freedom to live life, with no questions asked, on your terms.
Being free to choose where you work, when you work, and who you work with is what freedom looks like.
For me, having total freedom means spending time with my family, lots of travel, and a sprinkle of crazy adventure thrown in along the way.
I am passionate about helping other entrepreneurs to succeed in business so they too can create the business, and lifestyle, they love.
