Learn all about the benefits you could receive from this program!
To be eligible for Self-Employment Allowance you must be receiving an eligible benefit such as a jobseeker payment. If you are not eligible for Self-Employment Allowance however, don’t be discouraged! You are still eligible to participate in all other aspects of the program and there are a huge number of benefits you will receive when participating in Self-Employment Assistance.
Having your own business is an exciting and rewarding path for many people, but it can also be challenging, especially when you’re just starting out. Fortunately, we are here to help! In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the benefits of participating in the program and how we can help you achieve your entrepreneurial goals.
Access to formal small business training
One of the most significant benefits of participating in Self-Employment Assistance is access to small business training and help to develop a business plan and financials. This nationally recognised training can help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to run a successful business.
Whether your weakness is accounting, marketing, or legal requirements, the training can equip you with the tools you need to succeed. The business plan formalises your idea, so you have a clear direction and plan to proceed.
Business coaching and mentorship
Another benefit of Self-Employment Assistance is access to business coaching and mentorship. We have experienced coaches who can offer guidance and support as you start and grow your business.
These coaches can help you identify areas where you need improvement and provide you with advice on how to overcome challenges. They will meet with you bi-monthly to ensure you stick to your plan and reach your goals.
Networking is essential for any business owner, and Self-Employment Assistance provides you with access to a network of like-minded entrepreneurs. During training you can meet other business owners and build relationships that can help you grow your business.
You may even find potential clients or partners while you’re learning! During the 12 months of coaching, we can link you with other businesses on the program where there may be opportunities to collaborate or shared interest.
Access to eligible business cost payment
While you may not be eligible for self-employment allowance, Self-Employment Assistance can still provide you with access to a $300 reimbursement payment to help cover start-up costs like insurance. When you commence small business coaching we will show you how to make a claim.
Access to resources and information
Finally, during Self-Employment Assistance we can link you with a wide range of resources and support to help you navigate the challenges of entrepreneurship. From where to get legal advice, free digital assistance to get your business online or low cost workshops. You will be surprised to know how many tools and resources are out there!
In conclusion, participating in Self-Employment Assistance can provide you with many benefits, even if you’re not eligible for Self-Employment Allowance. We offer access to free accredited training, business coaching and mentorship, networking opportunities, $300 eligible business cost reimbursement and link you with resources and additional support. By taking advantage of this program, you can increase your chances of success as a small business owner and achieve your entrepreneurial goals.
