WORKSHOPS FOR BUSINESS START-UPS
Start Your Own Business
This is a 10wk ONLINE workshop series based on our increasingly popular Start Your Own Business Workshop Series.
If you want to start your own business - start right here!
These are practical accessible workshops for people starting up businesses (including being sole traders) to do or make all kinds of things and for people who have all kinds of backgrounds.
All the workshop topics are linked. From our track record confidence, motivation and knowledge are all improved. Explanations are clear. There is question and answer time. All workshops get people taking actions to move their ideas forward. The finance and tax workshops are especially beneficial and successful – it is often the part that seems scary to people and can therefore be glossed over or pushed away for another day!
