Wesley Mission helps turn lawn mowing hobby into business

It started out as a hobby. But when Michael and Jackie began mowing their neighbours’ lawns, they started to dream.

“I like outdoors work. I just find it quite relaxing,” Michael explains. “But I wanted to make a business of it, be my own boss and have that positive feeling of working for myself.”

It wasn’t until they met the team from Wesley Mission’s Opportunity Pathways that they turned their hobby into a business called ‘Mo Lawncare and Maintenance’ in Coffs Harbour.

“The Wesley Mission team been very helpful showing us how to start and build our business,” Jackie says.

Along with registering their business name, applying for an ABN and business advertising, the team also supported with funding for lawn mowing equipment and safety gear.

“Wesley Mission’s been a great stepping stone and has given us the self-confidence to be able to take on the prospect of the business,” Michael says.
