If you’ve often thought you’d like to be your own boss and work for yourself but haven’t been sure what to do or where to start, this event is for you.
Starting a small business or deciding to go self-employed can be daunting, especially if you've been in employment up to this point or recently lost your job.
On Wednesday 26th April ‘Be Your Own Boss. Business Start Right’ will be held by the Business and IP Centre Norfolk at North Walsham Library in association with Genix Business Support and ERDF. There will be ideas on how to attract new customers, what to think about to keep on the right side of law and tax rules.
Ruth Lowe of local business Ruth Elizabeth Events who set up her business two years ago will share with you her top tips to success and some of the pitfalls to avoid.
This Business Start Right session is the first of three free sessions available in North Walsham for people who are either, thinking of starting a business, in the process of doing so or ‘test trading’. As well as two further business skills training courses which will cover marketing, selling and book keeping you’ll be provided with free business fact sheets to take away.
