Business Start Up Course

  • Are you thinking of becoming self-employed?

Starting a new business involves many challenges that can be daunting for a newcomer. At Maybe Magazine, we offer training to give you the crucial skills and confidence you need to become self-employed and successfully run your own small business.

Who will help you learn?

This exciting course draws on the combined business experience of the Directors and Managers of Maybe Magazine. Delegates will be helped to develop a strong and practical business plan that will include marketing, finance, social media, website building and more.

How does it work?

The course runs 10:00am-3.00pm two days per week, with additional mentoring and supervised personal study sessions, and online learning.
