A student experience: Leah Wright

"I completed the Certificate IV in Small Business Management with Byron Community College to give my Byron Rashie business some traction. I’d been involved in several start-up businesses over the past 15 years, so loads of ideas, but realised my weakness lay in running the business – which is crucial. I’d reach a point with an idea i.e. concept through to implementation or production, but the next step was always a stumbling block as I didn’t have a point of reference or anyone to guide me. I kept thinking “I really need a business plan”, so decided to do something about it. Now, I constantly refer back to my business plan, particularly for financial updates and keeping online marketing strategies on track.
My vision became much more specific, the ideas far more expanded. Most importantly I learnt about sustainability – for my business, the community, the environment, for myself and my family.

Our tutors were inspirational and made going to class exciting – I wasn’t expecting to have so much fun! The other surprise was the students. We became a tight knit group – due to some rigorous debates and brainstorming sessions. There was loads of support and it often felt like each business idea had a whole team behind it.

My advice to people considering enrolling in the Small Business qualification is ‘Just do it.’"
