"But I'm not a business person"

 

That's ok.  We'll help and support you as you develop the skills you need.  You'll also be surprised at how many skills you already have! Running a business isn't that different from running a home - you might already know a thing or two about budgeting, organising and prioritising, and managing people.  We'll help you transfer those skills into business.

 

"But I don't even have an idea"

 

That's ok.  We'll help you think of some ideas related to your own hobbies and interests.  We'll help you identify any gaps in the market and wherever your passion lies, we'll work with you to make a business out of it.

 

"But I don't have the time"

 

We understand that your time is precious and we're only asking for 1.5 hours for each of the 6 workshops and about an hour for the online ones.  A creche facility will be available and you can choose how much time to spend on your business outwith the workshops.

 

If you can't come to them all - don't worry, we'll help you catch up online.  

 

  • Earn some income

  • Learn new skills

  • Meet new people

All while working on something you love when and how it suits you and your family.
