What our attendees say: "This course gave an excellent insight into how to get started. I have had self-doubt about the immensity of being self-employed and this course really gave me clarity on what I had to do next and tools to structure and refine my idea. Clear and sensible advice that made my goal feel more achievable. Very supportive delivery too." James attended a Virtual Self-Employment Discovery workshop.
