    That's very exciting, and congrats on coming up with the plan!! It's not a huge amount of money (although i hear ya re the amount in savings, same here), but it does still sound feasible. Keep your eye on the prize and you'll make it happen

    Do it! You can get credit card limits for this. If it's what you want, find a way! Worst case scenario, you're 10000 in debt and you've given it a shot!

    Why not start on FB? It's free, and a good way to build your client base. You can use the money to help with buying of the new equipment (assuming you can work now with what you have?)

    Can you rent any of the equipment rather than buy it outright?

    This is a great idea if you can get around your slow computer problems as starting small and building yourself up is the best way to go as you don't have the huge outlay with no real sense if the concept is feasible.

    You can start off by offering simple service such as photo editing (there are cheaper programs even free ones) that you could start off using and then once you have made enough you can start to purchase the required items.

    If you decide not to start your business now make sure you use this time to write a brilliant business plan. A great quote 'fail to plan - plan to fail'

    Good luck!

    Great business idea! Are you going to tafe to do a design course? There's a company that gives huge student discount on adobe design suites. Hunt for second hand computer or buy from the US. I'm not sure but maybe you can take business loan, etc. Good luck!
