Event description
A new year will soon be upon us. What will 2022 bring? Have you decided that now is the time to review the way you earn a living?

About this event

Maybe you have spent the last few months thinking about working for yourself, setting up your own business - a chance to do something you love. Perhaps you already work for yourself but need help with the next steps.

Three years ago, after a long career in business and marketing working for herself and for others, Sharon, the owner of Fancy Plants made the break and set up her own business opening Fancy Plants and not only running it successfully through the pandemic, but even expanding the business right in the middle of it all. Before setting up Fancy Plants, Sharon worked in businesses of all sizes, mentoring business owners across different industries and ultimately working her way up to board level before leaving it all behind to set up Fancy Plants. Come and find out how she did it and more importantly what she learnt and spend the day finding out how you can take your business idea and develop it into a business that not only supports you but also gives you the space to work how you want, doing what you want.

Come and join us at our ‘Work for Yourself’ workshop in our fab new space above our Gloucester Road shop where you will be guided through the different aspects of setting up your own business. The aim of the day is to give you space to explore your business idea. Just come along with your idea or ideas (or just a desire to work for yourself) and spend the day with a small group, no more than 6, of like minded people.

Here’s what we will cover.

  • What’s your idea? We will take you step by step through preparing a business plan. Every business needs one. It gives shape and structure to your business and is usually needed by banks for financing and even landlords of business premises. But most importantly it will help you consider and plan the main aspects of your business. A business plan helps you think about what you are selling, who your customers are, how and where you will sell and market and what resource you need to run a business. You will come away from the day with an outline business plan that will provide a sound basis for your new business.
  • Finance - we promise this won’t be boring, but it’s essential to get this bit right. We will share with you some of the basics to think about when setting up your business.
  • Marketing and branding - getting this right is the difference between a successful business and a struggling business. We have some great tips to share with you.
  • Location location location - whether working from home or renting a space, we will discuss the options for your business.
  • Finally a chance to share your ideas, be challenged and to challenge in a safe and confidential environment with likeminded people.

The day will be informal and friendly with a mix of solid business advice, group discussion and time to work through your ideas. You can ask what you want, we won’t patronise or baffle. You will come away inspired and energised.

The day starts at 9.30am and concludes at 4pm with a short pit stop for you to grab some lunch and we’ll throw in tea, coffee and lots of biscuits. £95 per person, max 6 people at each workshop.
