Explore Being Your Own Boss

Being your own boss by starting your own business can be hard work, but is also very rewarding.

The Workary in Cabramatta is holding a FREE 10-day workshop, Exploring Being My Own Boss, to provide practical skills for local would-be entrepreneurs and start-ups to help kick start their business dreams.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said as a former small business owner, he understood the importance of support and guidance early in a business career.

“Starting your own business is exciting, but also nerve-racking and I applaud everyone who gives it a go,” Mayor Carbone said.

“While there is no such thing as a free lunch in business, The Workary workshop at Whitlam Library - Cabramatta is free.

“The payback for Council is that we see residents live their business dreams and a boost to our local economy with new business and investment.”

The 10-day workshop, run in partnership with business trainers MTC Australia, will teach practical skills including:

  • how to think like an entrepreneur
  • brand and design
  • finance
  • getting and retaining customers
  • pitching and communication.

Exploring Being My Own Boss runs weekdays from Monday 29 April-Friday 10 May, 9.30am-4pm. Registration required. For more information or to register call 9725 0333 or visit www.workary.network/en/events.

The Workary is a dedicated coworking space available in the heart of Cabramatta offering: free desk space, wi-fi, social events and business resources for businesspeople, remote workers and home based businesses needing office space. Private meeting rooms are also available at reasonable rates.
