Shifting to self employment with wisepreneurs

Nigel has been an enormous help to me in setting up my business. He is across so many aspects of running a small business, but especially the marketing. He is very knowledgable and thoughtful in recommending strategies to build a client base and gain momentum. This includes advising on what's worth spending money on, and what isn't. And he's very personable. Highly recommended.

You are not only living longer, but are healthier than previous generations.
While you have professional skills and specialist knowledge
it may be a good time to explore where this may take you through self-employment.

Retirement is approaching
As you approach retirement you may need to make some decisions.
Will you have adequate funds for retirement?
If you think not, then it may be time need to explore the idea of self-employment.
Or, continue working for as long as you can.

What is the point of self-employment?

It's about using your skills and specialist knowledge to create a small business to attract paying clients. 
You've worked long and hard building up skills, know-how and wisdom in your field. 
In many cases you know how to do your job without having to think too hard. 
However, the thought of continuing to work for someone else is no longer satisfying.
It is time to reap the rewards of your know-how.

This seminar will help you explore what you need to know, and do,
to have a better chance of success.

shifting to self-employment, what you'll need to be aware of, and

The presenter - Nigel Rawlins

Twenty years ago I made the shift to self employment and failed miserably.
I had no idea and no know-how​.
I was lucky early on because a business mentor took me under his wing and
helped me make the transition to self-employment

Over the last 20 years, with his advice and mentoring, I have managed to build up
a small marketing services company working with clients across
a range of industries, on a continuing basis.
In my work I have helped many businesses grow beyond what they thought was possible.

Why do I work with women?
Simple: they're smart, they get things done, understand that things take time, hence are we there yet.
Another good thing is that they don't expect me to do everything for them,
and can work collaboratively, rather than competitively.
Sorry guys, unless you have a creative focus, most men just tend to be a bit too impatient.
However, you are welcome to attend.

A workbook will be provided with practical down to earth recommendations.

The seminar is on Tuesday 15 August from 11am - 1pm​ in Melbourne
