Side step common business crippling mistakes
Setting up a small online business in Australia can be tough. You can get a lot of advice online but all the new terminology can be confusing and it’s never all in the one place.
If you’ve never started a business before, it can be downright overwhelming and a lot of would-be business owners get discouraged by the complexity of it all.
It took me three years to work out the purpose of my business, to set it up and build it online. It was only when I got a mentor to lead me through the process that it all came together.
That’s what I’m offering you.
