For many people obtaining and maintaining paid employment is a considerable challenge. While we believe this pursuit should not be abandoned, we have also seen such great, life changing success with people creating their own work- creating their own business.
What is clear is that few of these people would have ever been able to achieve the results they have, alone. They have all had, at least one committed and dedicated person, who has been their primary ally. This event is delivered from the perspective of what is required of the supporters, the allies, the staff, and the agencies. It has a great deal of very practical application and will give the participants clear direction on their next steps when returning to work the following day.
Workshop content will cover:
- Why create a business?
- What is a micro –enterprises vs a hobby / interest?

- Legal considerations and business structures
- Common problem areas
