Small Business Minister Chris Cummins is encouraging Gympie locals wanting to start a small business to attend a free development workshop, Getting Started in Business, from 12 noon - 2 pm on Wednesday 6th September at the Gympie RSL, 217 Mary Street, Gympie.

Mr Cummins said the workshop would help new small business operators or those about to start a business make a success of their new venture.

"Starting your own business is an exciting prospect but too many businesses fail because of poor management, especially financial management," he said.

"Participants will find out about businesses that have performed well and why. They will also learn about the benefits of networking and the importance of taking a close look at their own aspirations and skills.

"The workshop will provide valuable tips on business planning and advice on where to get more information. In addition, it will show people how to navigate the State Development website, which features a great deal of useful information for small businesses."

Mr Cummins said the workshop was designed to reduce risk for budding small business people by encouraging them to fully research their idea and prepare thoroughly before commencing trading.

"Participants will learn: how to determine the feasibility of their business idea; about licensing and regulation requirements; the importance of choosing the right location; and, about relevant legal issues," he said.

"Doing the proper research and planning is a critical consideration when embarking on a business venture - it can mean the difference between success and failure."

To book for the free Getting Started in Business workshop or for more information, telephone the Maryborough State Development Centre on 41211780 or visit www.sd.qld.gov.au/maryborough.
