Enterprise club mini workshops and mentoring support went down well this week

mini workshops business canvasThanks so much to Amanda, Aidan and Tahir who this week gave tailored support to 6 start-ups with specific learning requests.

Jaswant (home tutoring) and Stephanie (Osteomyology clinic) both spent an hour and a half with Aidan looking at their business canvas, reflecting and planning.  They both found it very helpful and scored the value as 10/10.  They both have targets for their business for the next 2 weeks and will be reporting back to each other about their progress.

Tahir spent time with Harminder who is planning to set up a copy writing and blogging business as a support for businesses that can’t spend the time they need to on quality written information, particularly on social media.  Her next step is to update her Linked In profile.

One outcome from the session is that Amanda is going to work with Harminder and get her help, through the Timebank, to write a blog about herself that can be posted on this website. She needs to build up her customers and is thinking of ways to promote herself.  Looking forward to it!  In the meantime, here’s a bit more information on Amanda’s bookkeeping start-up.
