  • Very Excited About My Course!!!!!

    As some of you may have heard from my very excited tweets and facebook status' last week, I managed to get some funding towards my business from The Princes' Trust. I am sooooo excited as I shall be attending a 5-day leather manufacture course in August now with the money. It will allow my business to expand and I am really looking forward to learning all the new techniques and creating lots of new designs, not just handbags but my pet accessoires too and other smaller items i.e belts. The course has a maximum of 4 people on it, so this will be great to get the help i need.

    I just wanted to let those of you who may be feeling a bit down about finding the money to help their business know that there is funding and help still about - so please don't give up!! it takes time to receive it but it is worth it xx

        Congratulations :-) Though I am sure the Princess Trust made you jump through some hoops though - for anyone looking to apply for funding maybe you can point them in the right direction as to where to start :-)

            Hey Francesca yes they did! I think the limit is 30yrs old and you have to be wrking part time or unemployed. You go on a 5day taster course called the enterprise programme, to see if self employement is right for you. Then you have to submit your business plan and costings, before going to the 'panel' (scary dragon's den' bit) and then they let you know if they think your idea is is worth the backing.

            Ali- I can't wait to get shopping for some lovely cuts!!!xx
