Keen to start your own business and don’t know where to begin? Don’t want your time and money developing a product or service that doesn’t work or nobody wants?

You’ll learn how to go from Plan A to a Plan that works.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why passion & purpose are important

  • The importance of knowing your audience and their world

  • The value of creating stories and personas

  • How to conduct effective customer interviews

  • How to create a one page business plan
