How to start your own business

February 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
0191 516 6111

Developed and hosted by a business expert in an informal setting, this is the first of our Flying Start workshops that will arm you with everything you need to know about starting a business.

Whether a full-time venture, side hustle or part-time lifestyle business turning a hobby into income, start-up expert Janice Marsh will eliminate the anxieties holding you back and help turn your dream into reality.

The workshop covers the highs and the lows of being your own boss, from funding to budgeting, accounting to recruitment. Janice will outline the practical aspects of business ownership, such as the skills required, the correct legal structure, pricing and marketing, and how to build a reliable support network.

This session is completely FREE, so what are you waiting for?

What you’ll learn…

      • Whether being self-employed is right for you
      • How to thoroughly research your idea

This workshop is for anyone with the gem of a business idea or those who have begun researching their idea without taking any further steps to making it a reality.
