Today we hear about the amazing business ventures our entrepreneurs developed during our Microenterprise workshop!
Veneza completed her Discovery Record with an idea of doing something with perfume. This is something she loves, and never starts her day without putting on.
With her support worker Natalie, Veneza developed this into an idea to create a range of scented products like body oils, soaps, and bath salts. During the workshop she learned production techniques and how to run her business with her support worker.
Veneza just produced her first batch of scented soaps at our Mandurah site with the help of her support team. The smile on her face after she finished was simply incredible!
Ethan has a love for science fiction stories, and has transformed this into a new business idea. His goal is to create a sci-fi card game to be produced and sold to the public.
Ethan is a hard worker and currently drawing all the amazing artwork used for the game. This will take some time, however the effort is worth the wait to create his artistic masterpiece!
With his support worker John he’s developed the first chapter of his game story and is continuing to build content and refine his product. Completing the Micro-enterprise workshop has given Ethan the skills, training, and knowledge to pursue a career in the board game industry.
Dale loves flowers and is a natural people person. He wanted to combine these two things into a career as a florist. Dale and his support worker Clinton is now working through the logistics of creating his business and how to produce and deliver his products.
He’s got plenty of enthusiasm and cannot wait to share his passion for flowers with the community.
With an interest in sewing, Kasey decided to create a line of unique clothing and accessory items designed to match the customer’s needs. Her first product is a shoulder bag with a range of customisation options.
Completing the workshop with Natasha has assisted Kasey to understand the financial risks and requirements, and how to manage and market her business. It’s provided structure, direction, and helped her take ownership of her career.
Congratulations everyone on your hard work! We wish you the best of luck as you continue growing your careers as entrepreneurs.
