Working with a Business Advisor helps small business owners to navigate challenges, make the right decisions and strategic plans to ultimately, do business better.

This service is delivered in a one-to-one format, between a qualified Business Advisor and a small business owner. The sessions are held online or in-person across Sydney.

After working with a Business Advisor, you will gain clarity and confidence on how to move forward with your business and develop a feeling of being in control of your business and your life.

Business Advice Sessions are funded by the NSW Government Business Connect program. Business Connect is a dedicated and personalised program that provides trusted advice to help you start, run, adapt or grow your small business.

How much does it cost?
At present, all Business Advisory Sessions are being delivered at no cost to do. As small businesses owners have done it tough through the pandemic, we are waiving all out-of-pocket expenses until the end of March 2022. This is tremendous value compared to what you would pay at a commercial rate – a one-hour session is valued at $235. This is made possible by our government funding.
