How To Build A Successful Business While Working Full Time

  • Launch22 31A Corsham Street London, England, N1 6DR United Kingdom (map)

Starting a business can be extremely risky. One of the best ways to mitigate the risk is to start your business while keeping your day job - at least until your business becomes profitable enough to replace your career.

It may seem impossible but it can definitely be done. Meet the speaker for the night, co-founder of Beyond VAs, Temi Kamson. Temi will be sharing the story of how she built her businesses from scratch while working full time as a teacher.

We'll be sharing how to get investment for your business or social enterprise; how to find low cost or free support to help you manage aspects of your business; how to automate parts of your business so that you can work on your business - not in your business.

During this meet up you'll learn: 
- The key people that you need to help you start or scale your business
- The reasons why so many small businesses fail
- How to prevent yourself from burn out
- Why giving up or giving in can open up new opportunities for your business.

This event is suitable for business owners that are looking to start or scale their business. Light refreshments will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you!
