Many NEIS businesses are going on to achieve great success, such as Cairns mechanic, Casey Bradley who has kicked off a mobile automotive repair business. Casey said the NEIS experience was invaluable and helped him to accelerate his business’s success beyond his expectations.

“After being involved in the automotive industry as a mechanic for eight years, I wanted to start my own business to gain personal and financial security and a better work/life balance,” he said.

“The NEIS program assisted me greatly to achieve success by showing me the fundamentals of business, the right step-by-step process of determining if I had a viable business concept and how to implement goals and marketing strategies.”

After just fifteen months of operation, Casey has achieved more than double his initial expectations of gross income and has the tools and confidence to continue growing his business.
