Business Support For Start-ups

Are you looking for business support for startups from someone who is actually running a business rather than a signposting service, or worse, an organisation that doesn’t actually know the first thing about running a business because they don’t have to make a profit as they get government funding.

Don’t get me wrong, signposting is an essential service for new and small businesses but it is a bit annoying when all you want to do is ask someone for help and actually get it – right there and then rather than be sent round the houses to find someone who can actually help you achieve your desired outcome.

I know this because I was in the same situation just a few years ago, and again a couple of years ago when I had to completely change my business model due to loss of funded contracts that I was working on. Here’s what I did and how I can help you…

Are you looking for business coaching that goes above and beyond the normal planning and action point setting?

I don’t know about you but I get really fed up when I pay for coaching and all I get is a “to do list” at the end of the session.

I have had many mentors over the years, some of them good, and some of them not so good. Here’s 5 things you need to look for in a mentor.

Change Is Good

This last year has been great for me. I have had a chance to try out a new business model and it worked!

I took on a training room on a years contract and it was a very scary decision as I wasn’t sure it was going to pay for itself let alone make me money. It worked out though, in fact much better than I had thought, but here’s the kicker…
