Good Business Bootcamp

21st May 2019 @ 09:30 - 14:30

Are you a local person with a business idea that will benefit the communty?

Or with an existing “good business” that you’d like to take to the next level.?

Back by popular demand, is Jen Gale’s “Good Business Bootcamp” (Last time we ran it, this event sold out quickly, so please book ASAP).

Please be aware that this really is a bootcamp – an intense, action-oriented day. It’s about getting on and getting it done. By the end of the day, you could have your fully fledged living, breathing business plan – and your pitch for Edventure: Frome’s upcoming Local Economic Forum (LEF) – a community event in Frome where everyone will be invited to eat, drink, dance, and “invest” in local businesses that we want to support in our community. (And by invest, we mean in terms of time, skills, money, childcare…etc)

So, if you’d love to apply for the LEF but are scared stiff. Or if you have a great idea to start-up or scale-up – but are not really sure if it has legs, then join us for a  ‘whistle stop tour’ of setting up a ‘good business’

You will:

  • Get crystal clear on your big vision for your business, your life and the positive impact you want to have
  • Put together a business plan – a real, actionable plan for how to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be
  • Think about your strengths and how you can use them in your business, any gaps you might have, and how they could be filled
  • Create a ‘lean start-up’ plan that you can action straightaway to allow you to test out your idea
  • Learn the basics of marketing your idea And so much more!

Facilitator: Jen Gale – www.asustainablelife.co.uk

Jen is a sustainable living champion and ethical business coach. She has been blogging for over 5 years, building a successful blog that has led to amazing opportunities like TEDx talks, writing for the Guardian, and appearing on national TV. Jen first began blogging in 2012 when she and her family spent a year buying nothing new, and she started a blog to document the experience. Through the blog Jen not only re-connected with her own creativity and discovered a flair and passion for writing, but she discovered the power of blogging and social media to amplify her message of re-use, repair and conscious consumption. Jen now works with individuals and families to help them to live more sustainably, as well as supporting ethical and social entrepreneurs to start up and grow their businesses so that they can make more good stuff happen.
