Run a business at home? Don't know where to start? This is a great event where you'll get contacts for all sorts of basic business help.
If you run or are thinking of starting a small business, the HomeBiz Connect events are a low-cost way of getting information from experts on a variety of relevant matters.
Don't even have a business plan? Not sure where to get started with selling something online? Don't know how to get your business funded? These are the sort of topics being discussed at the Sydney event BIT attended recently.
