as a change of lifestyle

Sometimes it just feels like the right time to do your own thing and start working for yourself.

make a hobby into a business

You may have decided to leave a large organisation; children may have gone to school, university or moved away; or perhaps an event or change in circumstances has let you say “now seems the right time to set up my own business”.

Simply Work for Yourself takes a fresh look at supporting people who want to work for themselves or start a business.

We believe that:

  • there are no right or wrong ways of doing things
  • working for yourself should work for you, not disrupt your life
  • asking intelligent questions at the right time will lead to good results
  • a good course should recognise your existing skills and experience
  • because you need to learn new skills at different times, you should be able to dip in and out of the content
  • discussion forums and the ability to share feedback and experiences makes working for yourself a lot less lonely
  • well-designed material provides new insights each time you visit it and isn’t put to one side as ‘completed’.

So this course contains a selection of self-assessment checks, information, discussion prompts, surveys and an encouraging community of users. All the material is accessible when you subscribe, and you can return to a section many times to get more and more from it.

When you have read more about the site here you can choose to access the first module free of charge for seven days, or make your first investment of £95 to access everything for three months.
