Are you based in Dorset and have an idea for a new business? are you looking to become your own boss after Covid 19 has changed life and are now feeling inspired to get started?

We will look at unlocking your potential, thinking about what you have already accomplished and what you would like to achieve. At the end of the three sessions you will have the tools you need for business planning and achieving your self employment goals.

Covered in the three sessions:

Day 1 An introduction to working for yourself

This will help you to identify both the potential barriers and benefits and give you the tools to build your self-belief when considering starting out in business.

Consideration will also be given to why you want to work for yourself, the basics of how to start a business, feasibility and business planning.

Day 2 Marketing

This important area of starting and running your own business will cover customers and competitors, identifying your target market, branding, marketing channels and developing a marketing strategy.

Day 3 Finance

We help you to consider whether your idea is financially feasible and viable and look at all the different elements that you need to think about.

The financial foundation on which your business is built is important and consideration is given to funding options. We look at how you price your products or services, how to create a cash flow forecast, and other financial basics to get your business established and grow successfully.
