  • There is quite a bit involved in having a home based business

    Firstly – you need to know what you want to do : ie do you want to be a consultant for something like Jamberry or Tupperware etc, or do you want your own stand alone product?
    Secondly – what are the skills that you already have ie: are you great at sewing, or baking or photography
    Thirdly – check out the following websites:
    https://abr.gov.au/
    https://www.business.gov.au/smallbusiness
    https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/ – or the individual one if your going to register as a sole trader

    also there are business coaches that have great websites with loads of links like:
    http://themakerscollective.com.au/ – a great one if your making your own products to sell

    Lastly make sure your prepared – plan, research, work out social media etc – there are lots of aspects and it can get quite daunting at the beginning, but just make a list and work on one part at a time in little chunks, step by step should see you develop a great business plan and get you off on the right foot

    Good luck!


  • I run my own business from home.

    Best advice would be to find something that you love doing, and that you think there is a market for the do your research – ask friends/acquaintances if they would buy it. Also, have a think about what type of business you want to have too – do you want to have to store stock or can you drop ship etc

    Talk to your accountant about setting up the business side – sole trader/company etc, they will also be able to help with abn, registering your business name and all that side of things.


  • I hope some kind person can help you. I’d be interested as well.


  • I actually have my own small online business,its all set up and ready to go it just got put aside for a few months while i focused on the kids,but i sell new lego individually on a site just for that. I’ve got an abn,registered name and all of that. But i can’t remember any of the how we set this all up, or came up with it.


  • No – but it does interest me – so look forward to the answers too.


  • Good luck!
