Business Overview

Work My Own Way is an Australian government initiative to support Gippslanders to become self-employed. Work My Own Way provides business mentoring and coaching, skill-building workshops and business networking meetups, as well as access professional services advice to anyone wanting to become self-employed or start a small business across Gippsland. Whether you want to become a freelancer, a small business owner or startup founder, we’re here to give you the confidence and skills to get your business off the ground.

You can book in for a half-hour business coaching session, or half an hour of advice from a lawyer, accountant or IT provider via the Work My Own Way website.

All services are fully funded as part of the Entrepreneurship Facilitator Service by the Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, and there is no fee to access any Work My Own Way events, business mentoring or professional services office hours. Work My Own Way is delivered by GippsTech across all 6 councils in Gippsland.
