Albert Peters at Sophia Hubs entrepreneurs club at Enterprise Desk

We had a useful and well attended session at our evening entrepreneur’s club this week at the Enterprise Desk space in Ilford Library.  This is going to be a useful collaboration between Sophia Hubs and the Enterprise Desk! 🙂

Our speaker was Albert Peters of Pegasus HR (see previous blog for more info on him) and he attracted a few established businesses, start-ups and also those considering setting up a business.  Albert was able to draw on very wide business experience and training/coaching experience to give useful content and input to such a wide range.  Amazing!

Some of Albert’s tips:

  • Make a record of what you are spending before you start-up.  HMRC takes account of 6 months’s prior costs
  • When you’re working out your prices you need to take into account all your living costs, days you can’t work/low seasons etc – don’t price too low, it does not help you in the long run.
  • Get good service agreements always with all contractorsAlbert Peter's speaking at entrepreneurs club 3.11.15
  • In partnership working you must get a legal contract, and really do not go into partnershipwith family members
  • Get other people to review your website and publicity
  • It’s worth taking small loans to keep your bank manager involved/interested in your business. It may come in handy during next recession.

Very glad to say Albert is willing to speak again.
