Nwes offers more free start-up courses in King's Lynn and Fakenham for budding entrepreneurs
In a week or so we’ll be waking up to a new political landscape.
The real economic consequences are as hard as ever to predict but what is certain we’re promised changes in policy, direction and legislation – the true impacts, of course, will be judged in the future not the present.
But what does all this mean for entrepreneurship? On the basis of what we’re currently seeing, it would appear very little.
Motivation to set up a new business or go self-employed is largely a personal decision arrived at for a number of reasons.
Interestingly on our First Steps to Start Up workshops we hear quite frequently the desire to take control of the future as a key motive to making this potentially life-changing decision. Nothing new in the concept, but surprising given some of the economic backdrop at the moment. Or is it?
Perhaps what these entrepreneurs see is opportunity and interest in self-employment is currently strong.
Mark Zukerberg said “the biggest risk is not taking any risk” and as with any big decision, how do you know now is the right time, though. Truth is you don’t know for sure but is it easier to do nothing or take the risk and do something?
Our two-day free First Steps To Start Up workshop isn’t about making the decision for you. But we will share lots of tried and tested ideas that will make it easier for you to decide if it’s right for you.
After all, with a New Year fast approaching it’s now the season famed for brand new resolutions. So if starting a business occupies a disproportional amount of your thoughts over the festive period, it’s probably time to book your free place straight away!
Our next courses run in Lynn on Wednesday and Thursday, December 11 and 12, and Thursday and Friday, January 9 and 10, and in Fakenham on Monday and Tuesday, January 6 and 7.
Book at online at www.nwes.org.uk/events or call Charlotte on 01553 970029.
Happy Christmas and, hopefully, a more prosperous New Year.
