Real Life Support for Small Business Owners
rumred · 13/09/2018 13:17
I've googled it and found very little for sole traders like me who are new to self employment.
I was wondering about setting up a meet up type group for real discussion and interaction as this is missing for those who go it alone. Especially if you're older, female and used to being employed by an organisation
I could do with support / ideas on confidence in my selling and abilities, and various other things I have to deal with. I'm aware some issues are shared from talking to self employed friends. So I'm guessing others could be interested in meetings
The make it your business stuff seems aimed at a much younger audience.
Any thoughts or advice gratefully received

UK business forums is popular for smaller businesses.

There's often at least one or two local business networking groups around locally. Try looking on Facebook.

Thanks for the suggestions.
The ukbf isn't what I'm looking for.
I've applied to join a Facebook group so will see if that has any face to face stuff
I'm considering somehow starting my own as I know a few people locally who may be interested

Where are you?
I’ve provided the support you are asking for through a local council run scheme
PM me if you want
