Do you help a family member with getting to appointments, or with other tasks such as meals or getting dressed etc?
If you're a parent, we’re not describing your typical parenting responsibilities. We’re talking about someone who can't do the day to day things to look after themselves.
Does the above paragraph describe your situation? If you said yes, then you're probably one of the many people that are classified as a carer (at least within Australia).
Some parents get assistance from the government others don't, but you are all amazing people!
Sometimes, as a carer, you can spend so much time looking after other people that you haven't taken the time to invest in yourself. That’s where the Online Business Lift-Off Program comes in. We’re all about helping you.
Have you ever looked at the things you or the person you care for struggle with and thought … “someone should come up with a solution for that!” Or that you'd like to use your hard-won experience and knowledge to help other people when they struggle? Or that you'd love to turn the things you love doing into a bit of financial support?
You may see business opportunities every day in the things you do … or would like to do, but maybe you're not sure that your idea could be needed, wanted or successful?.
The Good News…
The good news is that success looks a lot different today than it did yesterday! Today a business can be successful with as few as 50 customers … or even 10 people if your customer segment is really niche.
A colleague of mine, who helps me out with my business says she only ever wants 10 customers. Why? Because those 10 customers will generate all the revenue she needs so she can have the lifestyle she wants. The beauty of the internet and a little bit of target marketing is that you can find the people who love what you do.
The Not-so-good News …
The thought of starting your own business as well as caring for a loved one can feel overwhelming.
We get it. We really do. We've helped members of my family deal with this sense of overwhelm. Doing both of those things just feels like it can be too much, but what if you had someone caring for you and your business idea?
But wait! There's More Good News!
We're in the unique position of being able to help carers across who've been waiting for the ‘right' time to start a business.
Thanks to Australian Government funding, we have a handful of positions available in our next group. We support, encourage and nurture you as you validate your online business idea and get your business set up.
The Online Business Lift-Off program equips you with the skills and the tools to help set you up for success and this includes marketing, copywriting, helping you get your website set up, tracking the traffic, social media, a really unique way of attracting qualified customers and more.
And here's the really cool thing …
If you meet the eligibility criteria this program is fully funded by the Australian Government which means you don’t pay for the course. The only skin in the game that you have to bring is an idea or a gap in the market that you're passionate about!
Of course, you have to be willing to put in the time, effort and energy, but you already know what hard work looks like, right? So if you know someone or you are someone who takes care of a family member all the time, let us take care of you and help you make your dream come true.
Our next group starts on:
20 April 2020 – online (so you can do it from anywhere)
Please note: you must meet eligibility criteria to be funded by the Try, Test & Learn Fund.
We'd love for you to join us. go ahead and take the eligibility quiz to find out whether you can do the program for free!
If you know someone who would benefit from doing our program, please share this article with them. We (and they) will be truly grateful.
We make sure that we’re setting you up for success, so you can run your business on your terms.
And we'll support and guide your business ideas and help them become a reality.
