Start a Business
If your desire is to start a business and your head is full of ideas, you probably want to speak to someone experienced: what you need is business mentoring from someone has already done it. Perhaps you have an idea that will help your existing business grow? Or maybe you have a problem but too many solutions and can’t decide what to do. When you determine that you want to speak with someone who’s done this all before and can give you the confidence to march forward with your business, you’re in need of business mentoring.
If you want to start a business under a franchise model but don’t like the high upfront costs, you might find our business mentoring a preferable alternative. Many franchised business owners just need a mentor in their first year of business, particularly in serviced-based businesses like:
- Virtual Assistant
- Website Design and Online Marketing.
Our trainers and assessors, as well our support team, are mainly remote contractors (virtual assistants) so they are very familiar with the type of business you want to get into and can provide you with the mentoring support you need to start a new business.
Our team of support specialists includes Registered BAS agents and business owners so they are in a unique position to be there for you when you have a question about starting, running and growing a bookkeeping business. From questions about pricing and packages to legal suggestions and tips and tricks on the best way to get new customers — they are available for you.
There are many aspects to bookkeeping and you can start from basic data entry to more advanced reporting and financial strategy. If you have a question and you’ve got a business mentor, you always have someone to call.
