Get on with the business of your business.
You’ve been searching and struggling. You were so excited about starting your own business. You have a great idea and you started putting the wheels in motion.
But then you got lost in the acronyms and admin. In the bureaucracy and red tape.
You look around and it feels like all the other business owners seem to know what they are doing when it comes to this stuff. They can focus on working in their business instead of being overwhelmed by all the stuff that needs to be done FOR the business.
You know that your business idea is a great one, and that it can be incredibly successful. And that you can build a huge customer base and serve a ton of people. However, you’re being slowed down by all the stuff you don’t know and don’t have time to figure out.
There’s registering your business name, deciding on a business structure, getting an ABN, registering for GST, understanding marketing and social media, dealing with ASIC and the ATO… And that’s just the start of it!
It’s exhausting. And you just want to get on with doing the core business of your business, without having to pay other people a ton of money to do this for you.
You need ONE resource that covers all you need to know, so you can get the admin out of the way and get cracking on your business idea.
Don’t worry. I’ve got your back.
Hey, I’m Karen. I’m a small business owner who helps other business owners, creatives, and entrepreneurs sail through the necessary admin and get to the work they love doing.
I started my business 7 years ago as a side hustle while in full-time employment. I was so excited to start my business and already had two big clients on the books.
But then I got so caught up in learning about all the things I had to do to run a compliant business that it took time away from doing my work. And I was still working full-time, so I didn’t have a lot of time to give!
Eventually I worked my way through it, but I didn’t want anyone else to have to go through that pain. So I wrote the book that I wish I’d had when I started out. It’s all the stuff I spent so much time learning in the beginning, plus what I’ve learnt along the way. I’ve also studied entrepreneurship and business and incorporated all this into one resource for anyone in the early stages of business, so that you don’t have to go to loads of different websites, books and courses to find answers.
