Morena Ivan – good on you, a couple thoughts, you can get startup support from Work and Income if you are registered with them, check out this link, there are some hurdles to be eligible including (1) being registered (2) proving you are struggling to get work (3) doing a business plan and (4) getting the business plan signed off – – but they will if you tick all of those boxes.

A few other thoughts that might help (I hope)
– A guide for starting your business –
– An article I like, it is bit techy but I like how it focuses your mind on what to do when starting a business –
– I have a template business plan that a friend shared with me that I quite like, if you email me at I can send to you

All the best – Andy
