Self-Employment Services

Inspire. Connect. Support.

TEAM Work Self-Employment Services works with people who are interested in self-employment and entrepreneurship: providing inspiration, connections, and support to help them reach success.

The two core staff at Self-Employment Services bring with them a combined 34 years of business and entrepreneurship counselling experience from their time at the former Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Network. In addition to this, they both have experience with many of their own business ventures, making them a knowledgeable resource.
