    Hi all,
    I recently decided to start up my own business doing what I have been doing for years FREE of charge: Grant writing,
    I live in a small rural town in North Queensland – Cardwell and am involved in many not-for-profit orgaizations, over the years I have helped research, compile and acquit many grants.
    I love this work and decided to see how I go with making it a buisness.
    I welcome any words of wisdom and of cause if you know of any orgainzations requiring this type of assistance please let me know
    Cheers.

    Hi Thea,

    Definitely a challenging area. In this climate (esp. in Queensland) lots of organisations have lost funding from various levels of government so funding and grants will be even more hotly contested. A great time to enter the market IMHO.

    It’s great you’ve chosen work you love. Best of luck with it all.

    Hi Thea,

    That sounds like very personally rewarding work. Good on you for deciding to have a go!

    And welcome to Flying Solo too. Please feel free to start a new thread about any questions that you’re stuck – there are plenty of people around here who love a brainstorm!

    Best wishes,
    Jayne
