About the course

This online short course will help you develop a strong understanding of the essential requirements of setting up and running a small business from home. It is a practical course with content and learning that can be applied to establishing a home-based business in any field. No matter what your business idea, service offering or field of expertise is, you will learn to identify practical requirements of running a home based business.

Course modules

As well as insights from Karlee you will find out how to calculate the potential costs of setting up a business, identify what local, state and federal legislation may apply to your venture, how to prepare your home for clients as well as important things like contingency plans for any potential conflicts.

The course includes three modules to develop essential knowledge and skills.

Module 1: Determine the viability of running your business in a home environment

Module 2: Plan out how your home business will operate

Module 3: Manage and minimise potential sources of conflict arising from running a business from home

Each module includes engaging videos of Karlee sharing learnings from her personal home-business journey, comprehensive course materials plus activities and reflective questions to get you thinking about your own home-business approach.

The course content is set in an Australian small business context. There’s plenty of learning to be had for budding small business owners anywhere, but it’s important you know up front that this it’s based on Australian home business requirements.
