Turning your Hobby into a Business
June 4 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Do you have a talent or passion for something ?
Do you want to change the world?
Earn more money by doing what you’re good at?
Use what assets you have to earn some money?
Feel control of your finances yet have time to look after loved ones and just enjoy your life?
This introductory workshop will help you think these things through and how to begin the journey.
We will look at what you need to do to get started by identifying things that you could do in an approachable manner.
Some of the most famous brands started this way like Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Laura Ashley and the Body Shop. Why not come and see how we could help you?
