In this half-day workshop you'll find out what your best route to business ownership is, and how to apply that to finding the best possible business opportunity for you - one that will best suit your personality, talents and working style.
All successful self-employed people and business owners have one simple thing in common - they do what suits them best in a field that means something to them.
When we think of business owners, we usually think of starting from scratch – coming up with an idea and developing a business around it, but that isn't the only way to become a business owner. You could buy into an existing business model that you set up yourself as a licensee or franchisee, or you could take over an existing business and run it for yourself.
However you do it, certain characteristics improve your chances of success, but the characteristics needed to succeed in the different routes are by no means the same.
Put simply, getting a business up and running is different from running it and running it well. In fact a crucial skill in successful entrepreneurs is knowing when they should stop ‘getting it off the ground' and hand the business over to someone better at running it than they are.
What does this mean for you?
Well if you are thinking of getting into self-employment or business ownership you need to know whether the best role for you is as the entrepreneur starting and growing a business, or as someone who's going to run the business like clockwork as it is, or that rare balance between the two, someone who can run the business smoothly while constantly looking for improvements.
Getting your role wrong can lead to heartache, stress and dissatisfaction with yourself and others, not to mention financial disaster.
That's why we've put together this half-day workshop - so you can find out what is likely to work best for you BEFORE you take the plunge and start or buy a business.
