YAY! Good one Dan THE Man!! So, are you gonna move down this way so we can play cob ovens and smokers and tiles and weed pulling and chooks and rock wall building and, and???
Where's your mate gone? QUJE?? Can't spell his name ...was going to ask him which employment agency he is with and if they have an office down this way and if he has any contacts or leads etc for me to find a job I actually LIKE :(
Hey still here :lurk: reading most posts :D
I am working for Employment WORKS http://www.employmentworks.org.au and we service the Mid Murray region, ie Swan Hill, Kerang, Robinvale.
I don't remember where you are Tully but there is bound to be a Job Network Member in your area just put in your location at this site http://www.jobsearch.gov.au and it will give you local JNM's and you can search for jobs there too
Otherwise sites like Seek etc are good
If you send me a PM with your resume and job preferences I can have a look around for you as I do have a few contacts around.

G'day Quje (had to copy and paste that...it's a bitch of a name lol could you change it to something easier ?? :lol: :lol: )
I do http://www.jobsearch.gov.au each day but we have an average of 4 new jobs a day <sigh> here in the sth west region, Warrnambool area.
I had not a bad day today at work so that's when I think to myself oh this won't be too bad....then I have a bad day and it all goes belly up. :(
There's a new Homemaker Centre opening here next month so I did a search and thru the local paper website discovered the traders going in there. I emailed one of them (resume attached) before wk this morning, but have no reply so far. I'm a bit of a "get off your bum and make your own future/luck/fortune happen" person and rarely let a chance go by to, I believe the term these days is, "network" :D hence my note to you.
What I'd really love to do is open a shop myself...so my question is, are there any programs at the moment like NEIS (is that it??) but for people not on benefits? Just for people who want to open a shop/start a business but have no business plan and no funds??
Thanks for any help, I appreciate it.
:pirate: Dan THE Man , :pirate: sorry to hijack your exciting thread....any news at all on the sale???????Please keep us posted :D
Unfortunatly the only programmes that I know of are for people looking for work (on centerlink payments) or returning to work (from being at home Mum, careing for someone etc). You already touched on NEIS which is a fantastic programme that gives you 12 mths payments without job searching activities and aswell as small business training and a mentor..................but I dare say you wouldn't be eligable :cry:
There is also transition to work and as the name suggests this is for people how have been out of the work force for whatever reason for a period of time and wish to return. You don't need to be on Newstart oryouth allowance etc.. but alas you do need to have been out of work for some time. :cry:
So unfortunatly you don't qualify for the programmes that I know of but there may be grants out there for a smart business idea to get a start, say a organic health food come permie advice come aquaponic :wav: come internet chat room come cafe come bookshop come.......well you get the drift :D
Oh and PS my name is acually Quentin (nickname is Quje - sort of prononced like huge but with a Q) but you can call me Quent if you like
25-10-2005, 08:41 PM
Thanks Q, from now on you shall be known as "Q", k?? :lol: and sometimes you shall be known as Far Q, but not if you behave yourself :D
Nope, don't qualify for any of that stuff. Was thinking I may just march myownself into a bank and say, well, what can I do/borrow? Guess they'd want some sort of an idea as to figures though and I have no idea where to start...I want to open a scrapbook supplies shop....do a little google on scrapbooking...it's the most popular hobby in the whole wide world (1/3 of the US does it for example) and there is no shop in this region. Not very permaculture though is it <gulp> :?

:lol: Scrapbooking is so too permie linked...if you reuse old cards, bits of old ribbon etc for your embellishments....lots of bits and pieces you would otherwise throw out...It's also about family, memories and making it yourself.
For your shop why not start small....run some small classes from home...look into shared shop space with another small operator...use your garage....go for it... :D

Awww, good on ya Cathy, that's the scrapping spirit! It's funny you say about reusing actually 'cos the other night I asked other half to cut the little ribbons out of my top (you know the ones they stitched to the shoulders that they use in the shops to tie it to the hangers??) when he handed them to me I saw they were a silvery colour and had little print on them..Hot Options LMAO!! Yes, Kmart or Target or one of those trendy bowteeks :lol: :lol: :lol: and I said Oooohhh, I can save those and use them for embellishments!!
Thanks for your post and the encouragement :)

You'll probably find a Small Business Centre in Warnambool, There is one here , the Bool is much bigger (2 Macca's)
The can help with Networking and cheap / free courses such as "How does GST affect you" and all the hidden stuff you need to know.

A small Business course at TAFE may be the thing you need, to get you started.

Hey there Tully,
I am so sorry to hear that your new job is not all that you wanted it to be.
My Glenn did the NEIS course and I am sure there were others in the course that were not on Centrelink payments at that time...I may be wrong though. Do you qualify for payments? If so, it is my understanding that you only need to be on them for a short period before you can qualify for the NEIS program - perhaps you could have a chat to your local Centrelink office for more (concrete :wink: ) information.
I think the scrapbooking idea is great too - anything to promote recycling always gets me excited - perhaps you could see if your local community centre (or similar) would be interested in you running scrapbooking workshops?
Yay Dan! When do you hear whether you have sold for the price you want? I'm all excited for you and your dream too :D
Sorry for not explaining myself properly, to be eligable for NEIS you have to be on some type of payment...... maybe it would be better if I just quote hey
Who can participate in NEIS?
If you are unemployed and in receipt of a qualifying income support payment or a Department of Veterans’ Affairs War Widow/er or Partner Service pension you may be eligible for NEIS.
NEIS places are competitive and eligibility alone does not guarantee acceptance into the programme. NEIS applicants are evaluated on personal and business eligibility criteria.
All participants must sign an individual contract with DEWR, called the NEIS Participant Agreement.
No need to ask C/Link this stuff is my job! As much as I don't enjoy it, I do have some knowledge in it :wink:
Anyway, any more news Dan? Are they prepared to pay what it is worth? We have some scungy bastards round here that expect alot for very little :lol:
