Self-Employment Discovery Workshop Preston

Monday 29th January 2018



Whether you’ve already started working on your business idea, or are just considering self-employment, come along to our business workshop and meet like-minded people.

This practical workshop will take you through the pros and cons of self-employment. Working both as a group and individually, you will gain an awareness of what starting up a business means; to you, your family, and your finances.

By the end of this one-day workshop you will have a better idea of what starting a business entails, and have a clear understanding of what support is on offer, so you can plan your next steps. X-Forces will provide ongoing support to those who choose to pursue self-employment, providing expert guidance as you plan and launch your business.

A follow-up workshop will continue the learning and business planning support. Please see X-Forces website and Eventbrite homepage for details.
