Get your business on track

March 6, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Get your business on track

2 places left for March at a reduced price – and you can have your business plan in place by Easter!

Getting an idea for a business, testing some thoughts on friends and drawing up a few ideas is great fun. You’re sure you’ve hit on something that will work and you will enjoy doing.  It’s a good feeling.

You know you must have a website and a presence on social media.  Should you have an office space/market stall/shop front? What about VAT, end of year accounts, registering your business? How much will all this cost?  Should you talk to a bank, a business incubator, or a business coach? How much time can you dedicate to the venture? Suddenly it can all seem a bit overwhelming.

Be part of a group that understands and wants you to succeed. At the end of each session, you will have part of a plan written down and numbers in place. There will be plenty of opportunities to share your experience and socialise with fellow entrepreneurs. As a group, we can explore our ideas, mould our thoughts and support each other.


Each session will cover important elements for instance?

  • Who is your customer? What are they looking for?
  • What image/message should you generate?
  • What do you want from the venture and how do you achieve it?
  • How are you going to make money?
  • How much money will you?
  • How much will you invest in time and money, before you start to make a profit?

Each person works on their own project and sets their own targets, but we will be there to guide and answer questions. There will be 10-minute breaks and the opportunity to look to the group for support and test ideas and thoughts.

What and how much you write is entirely up to you. But here is the difference: you are not alone. Others are around you, typing, scribbling or supporting each other. Working in a group will help you stay focused and at the end of the course, you will be able to walk away with your thoughts in better order and your business plan in place.

The Format

  • 2 x 3hour workshops
  • Step by Step Business Planning E-Book
