have any doulas out there approched a business set up place such as small business gateway or business link???? how was your idea looked at? i have visions of mine aughing and telling me to get a life has anyone been successful???
daisy... that sounds very cloak and dagger!!! I will email you though I phoned the woman who runs it and she just said she needed payment up front, it said on the site that I could have a reduced course if I hosted it, but that's not an option. I have sold ALL of my cardmaking stuff to pay for it, and my dh has spent all of the money I made. (he needed it too)
I am planning on using Business Gateway to see if I can get grants etc to get leaflets/business cards printed, and for any possible help with website etc.
I made tentative phone call enquiries before doing my course in case there was any help with the course costs, which there wasn't, but when I mentioned the word Doula, the lady on the phone didn't bat an eye lid, understood and sent out info with on Doulas in it.
I did call recently to start up enquiries again but that time I spoke to ineptitude cos he never got anything back out to me again... so wil have to try again.
