The Queensland Government is making grants of up to $5000.00 available to home-based entrepreneurs in what is the first program of its kind in Australia.

Under the Queensland entrepreneurs of Tomorrow Home Based Business Program funding will be available to stay-at-home-parents seeking to establish or develop home based businesses.

The Government has committed $1 Million over three years to support this program with funding of up to $5000.00 provided to successful applicants.

Peace & Katy of AusMumpreneur have been a key partner in initiating this landmark grant program for Queensland and were excited to hear that this generous package had been officially confirmed at the Queensland budget briefing in Brisbane. The AusMumpreneur Network is offering a program for home-based business owners who are interested in applying for this funding.

Home-based business school

Home Based Business School provides online support, mentoring, events and online training programs to help women start, manage and grow successful and profitable businesses from home.

Created especially for home-based business owners through this project we will work with particpants to create a targeted and strategic action plan for their business. Designed to help participants focus their direction, upgrade their skills and business knowledge, come up with creative new ideas and think about where they want their business to be. Combining face to face consulting, a one day group coaching session, support, networking and advice to help business owners develop their business action plan.

The Home-based Business School Action Plan program will be run by Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner.  Peace and Katy are passionate about supporting mums in business and have been business owners themselves for the past 6 years. Together they have run numerous business programs and events for home-based business owners and have helped thousands of Australian mums to create successful and profitable businesses from home.

Here’s what other home-based businesses owners say about our programs:

“After participating in the AusMumpreneur 28 day Challenge last year I was able to define my business goals more clearly and extend the range of services I was offering to clients. One of the early sessions in the 28 day challenge was instrumental to my overall business success in that it enabled me to work out what I needed to do in order to meet the needs of clients and prospective clients. The 28 day challenge made me really think about what clients and prospective clients needed and what goals and tasks I needed to set in order to realise my vision. Setting up and establishing a successful business is so time consuming and conscious planning is crucial for success. The 28 day challenge enabled me to do some conscious planning without taking too much time away from the day to day running of the business. I would highly recommend the challenge to any mumpreneur who is running or thinking of running their own business.”
Tania Clarke | Ensis Global Freight

“Being a part of the AusMumpreneur Network has been more beneficial than I thought possible. The networking and business contacts that I have made are only the beginning, what I never imagined was the friendships that I would form and also the added education. The other ladies have given me “food for thought” many times over and this has greatly assisted me in all areas of my business and work/life balance. I would (and do!) recommend this network to all mums (or just women in general) that are in the beginning stages of their business as it is by far the best support they will find!”

Jemma Vanderboon | Your virtual asset

“From the moment I became connected to the AusMumprenueur network I felt a sense of relief and coming home. Finally, a network (a community) that honours and acknowledges the role of motherhood and a woman choosing to follow her own passion and purpose to take care of her family and make a difference in the world. If you want to have it all… on your terms, this is the place to feel elevated and supported to do just that!”
