One-Day Workshop for Women Considering Self-Employment

Creative and enterprising women living in Westminster or Kensington and Chelsea Borough who are interested in finding out what’s involved in running their own business have a fully-funded opportunity to take themselves and their ideas seriously.

Designed specifically for women who are parents, guardians or helping to care for someone in their family or community, 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, this workshop with Sarah-Jane Menato will help you decide whether or not the time is right to further explore self-employment.

This workshop is an opportunity to dip your toe in the water, explore what’s involved and see for yourself just how easy it can be to set-up and run your own business. In the company of like-minded women you’ll have fun and explore topics like:

• What is an Entrepreneur? • Why choose self-employment? • The skills and qualities of an entrepreneur, and have you got what it takes? • 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.

This flexible workshop will help answer your questions and support you in exploring how self-employment might work for you.
