The Qld Government is helping certain small business owners with coaching costs... See if you qualify.
For some of our clients this may apply. And it's a great way to be coached for your small business marketing.
The Queensland Government have started a grant, where business owners can receive $5000 for the use of a business coach.
To be eligible for this grant you must have a Queensland home based business with an ABN,
have at least one child under 12 who is with you at least 50% of the time,
be an Australian resident living in QLD and have a household income under $100 000.
The Queensland Government recently announced it is offering $1 million in grants to start and grow your home-based business. So, if you are a stay-at-home parent, for the next 3 years, you could access funding through the Queensland Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow scheme.
This program of Home Based Business grants aims to give a level of support to stay-at-home parents to start and grow their idea and to make it a success.
What’s on Offer?
Funding of up to $5,000 (excluding GST) will be provided in two stages:
Stage one: Grants of up to $2,500 will be provided to stay-at-home parents to hire a professional consultant to develop a business action plan for their home-based business.
Stage two: Dollar for dollar funding of up to $2,500 will be provided to successful stage one recipients to improve or establish business as detailed in the business action plan developed in stage one.
Note though that grant payments are not paid to you. These funds will be paid directly to the consultant or service provider on successful completion of the project.

To be eligible, applicants must:
1. Have a Queensland-based business
2. Meet the definition of a home-based business
3. Have at least one child under 12 in their care for at least 50% of the time
