The floods in Northern Australia are devastating. Having come from Queensland and with much of my family in the devastated areas, I think it would be remis of me not to look at how this natural disaster is affecting not only ordinary people, but business people as well.

To think that so many people who struggle as it is to pay their mortgages and to afford the basics in life, have to face the fact that their homes and belongings have been destroyed and that there is no job to go to.

For business people, not only do they potentially not have a business, they still have to survive and think about life after the after effects of the floods have been cleaned up. They have to think about employees and what the affects of losing their jobs in the face of a natural disaster – and  potentially their families as we all know that the stress of money has effects on relationships.

We have for years put our hands in our pockets for the Tsunami and other world disasters, but now its time to support those a little close to home.

My thoughts are with all the families and business people who have been effected by the floods and for the people who have lost their lives.
