We Help You LAUNCH Your Own Successful Creative Business
Forty Plus, Fabulous and Yearning to Have Your Own Thriving Business ?
During this three month LAUNCH programme, we partner with you, 1-2-1 to develop your business and bring insight into areas that you may not have considered. In just 12 weeks, we take you step by step, through everything you need to do to Launch. It's an implementation programme so we work with you like a business partner and even do some of the work for you. It includes aligning your values to your business idea, discovering your ideal customer, mastering the art of pricing, finding suppliers, developing your day to day operations, creating a finance and marketing plan and much more. Plus you end up with a short but powerful business plan on Liveplan software that you can use to keep you focused, easily communicate your business idea to others and keep you on track throughout the year.
The aim is that your business is launched at the end of our time together
"Firstly I would like to thank Ally for her time and effort that she has put into this course and into our weekly 'Launch your own successful creative business' sessions.
Ally has perfectly tailored our sessions so that every week she has presented me with material that is specific to my business concepts. This course has made me micro think about the business I want to create. Not only must I consider the goals and projections I envisage for my business, I also have to consider how I will get there and what steps, practices & processes I need to take in order to get there.
I recommend those who are looking to launch a successful & creative business to enlist Ally as their coach".
