Getting Started in Business 101 @ Y(E)P Cairns
Feb 26 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

So, you’ve got a business idea. Or you think you might have a business idea. Or you’ve got some skills and you want to make money for yourself, and not your boss. But what now? How do you get started?


Getting those wheels moving is hard work – and there’s lots to understand and get your head around!


This workshop is designed to set you up on the right path. We’ll start by making sure you’re well equipped to determine whether your idea is going work. And we’ll talk about why so many start-ups don’t get off the ground – so you know ‘what not to do’.


We’ll talk about understanding your market, designing your product or service for your customers and the types of things you should be setting up right from the start, to make sure your business is sustainable in the long term.


Then we’ll begin to put a framework about all the less exciting things you need to know when you’re starting a business, like structuring your business, getting an ABN and a business name, what laws do you need to know about and how to find out if you need a permit, license or certification in order to operate your business.


If you’ve got an idea and don’t know what to do next – this workshop is perfect for you.


If you’re thinking about establishing a business to create yourself a job – this workshop is also perfect for you.
