Women often consider self-employment for unique reasons, wanting to balance caring responsibilities alongside the need to make money, and the longing to do work they love.
If you have a business idea, a hobby you’d like to make money from, or are simply wondering if you’ve got what it takes, then this course is for you. It will answer your questions, help you risk assess your ideas and support you in exploring how being self-employed might work for you. In the company of like-minded women you will learn a great deal, have a lot of fun and cover topics that include:
What is an Entrepreneur?
Why choose self-employment?
What are the skills and qualities of an entrepreneur?
Work-Life-Balance and your vision of your future.
Business Plans. What are they and who are they for?
You as your best marketing resource and use of social media for business.
Managing paperwork, your finances and what the taxman needs.

Comments from past participants:
I have enjoyed working with a group of diverse women with very different backgrounds and ethnicity. So many business networks are so very ‘dull and grey’, this felt inclusive and the opportunity to share ideas very useful. The course has served to remind me too, the importance of having, and working, a business plan. The framework has been invaluable in exchanging and building the business idea with my partner. The structure together with the network giving emotional support is vitally important.” Hilary Dobson
“Thank you to Sarah-Jane and the PBC for providing such a marvellous course. I find it astonishing that such a fantastic service can be provided for free! Really cannot recommend highly enough. The quality and level of teaching and facilities is fantastic. I’m so sad the course has to come to an end, as I have so thoroughly enjoyed having Tuesdays dedicated to this. The group of women on the course are all so unique and fascinating in their own way. I truly feel we have established a rich and varied network of all kinds of skills. Sarah-Jane has been kind, supportive and insightful throughout. Her intuition is so apt and perfect, it really is amazing. I’m leaving the course feeling informed, enthusiastic and empowered. I’m ready to enter the big bad scary world as a ‘self-employed warrior women’.” Rowan Lewis (soon to be www.rowanblossom.co.uk)
