January coming to a close, and one thing is certain, whilst country is coming slowly out of recession, here in Blackpool Entrepreneurs are starting businesses faster than ever.
In the first 3 weeks of 2014, more than 60 Entrepreneurs have attended our Road to Enterprise courses. All have started the journey towards setting up their own business.
They come from all areas. 3D designers, E Commerce, Bricklayers, Dog Sitters, Dog Groomers, Hoteliers, Beauticians, Barbers, IT, Computer Repairers and so on.
Male, Female, Old , Young, unemployed, employed, disabled, Ethnic Minority Groups, enormous diversity.
50% were on benefits all wanting to escape this life. SO do not believe all you see on TV, people do want to work, are willing to learn, and do seek help. Visit NEA scheme if you are unemployed and learn more. Visit start up loans and learn more on their scheme. THEY ARE GREAT SCHEMES!
In Blackpool they are lucky, we are here to help them.
I will start writing some blogs on their individual journeys next, and keep you posted on how they pan out.
Keep reading, love to hear from you.
As always, Geoff Reeves, Get Started, Blackpool unlimited.
