Join us for an exciting workshop & discover your hidden talents: Do you have a business in you? 24th April – book soon

RISE 35At Rise Business Development Circle, Luanne and I believe that, just as everyone has a book in them, so we all have ideas/skills that are potentially viable businesses.

Whether or not you want to develop that potential is a decision only you can make: all we ask is that you don’t make it until we’ve helped you to examine your resources (far more than you probably give yourself credit for), your options (the same!) and shown you how, with the right support, you can set up and grow a successful enterprise to the level that fits your needs and brings you the fulfilment we all deserve from our working lives.

Our workshop on April 24th is your opportunity to start exploring whether or not you want to take your idea forward or even to examine what that idea might be.

We’ll be making a start on the process of choosing the right objectives, mapping out the route to get there and mastering the psychological challenges.
