Supporting new entrepreneurs

Some months back now, I was approached by The Business Centre (formerly the Hunter Business Centre) to sit on the panel of the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme program. This program is available to eligible job seekers who are interested in running their own business, and provides them with the training and support needed to kick-start their business.
As a small business owner and someone who is passionate about helping those starting out in the Newcastle business community succeed, I am delighted to be a part of this program. I have had the opportunity to meet some inspired and driven people who are determined to make a success of their business. I am constantly surprised by the creative, innovative and sometimes quirky business ideas generated by participants in the program.
When taking the leap of faith into small business, it’s hard to know what you don’t know. Call it the ‘school of hard knocks’, but life as a small business owner will take you on the steepest learning curve imaginable. This program is a great eye-opener to all of the aspects of small business that need to be considered by those starting out.
As business owners in the Hunter region, it is up to us to pave the way for those starting out. Give them guidance, share your expertise and help them to grow their businesses. After all, we were in their shoes not that long ago!
