Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

When do I get access to the course?

How can I complete the course?

This course is delivered through Teachable with both written content and video in the modules.

Do I need an experience?

No. This course is designed for beginners to get you started on the path to your own online business.

What if I don't have an idea for a business?

That’s fine. In this course I’ll go through the different business models so you can come up with a business idea that will suit you.

You're in Australia and I'm not. Is the course still relevant?

Yes. This course is suitable for anyone in the world who wants to start their own business. There is one section that is tailored to Australian regulations for business, but can still be used to discover what you need to do.

I'm not a mum, can I take the course?

Absolutely. The course was created by Work At Home Mums, so mums are kind of our thing, but the course doesn’t actually have anything ‘mum’ about it. It will work just as well if you’re a mum, dad, grandparent, run screaming at the sight of kids, or a crazy cat lady. If you want to start a business, this course can help.

Are there any extra costs?

Yes, to set up a business there are costs involved in registering your business name. There will also be costs in engaging an accountant to set your business up right (not compulsory but highly recommended).

Does the course come with coaching?

No, this is a self guided and self paced course. If you get stuck, you are free to ask questions at the bottom of the lessons and we will help where we can.

What if I'm unhappy with my purchase?

I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have. Just contact us.
