#BOSSIT

WHAT’S HAPPENING? If you live in the South or Central wards of Weston-super-Mare, congratulations! #BOSSIT can help you explore what you’re good at and how to make money from your skills and talents. Just come along to our next event. WHY SHOULD I BE INTERESTED? What would you do with more money? Buy your own home? Head for the sun? Get a new car? Or simply make life a little easier for you and your family? #BOSSIT is about putting you in control and helping you earn more. I DON’T HAVE ANY SKILLS OR TALENTS Everyone has a skill or talent that they could make money from. Maybe your talent lies in caring for older people, or children, or animals. Perhaps your skills are as a driver, hairdresser, car mechanic or artist. Could your love of cooking, gardening or selling online be your future? Whatever your skills and talents, it’s likely someone will want to pay you for them. I’M NOT A BOSS! Yet! You may have never even thought about it. But it doesn’t have to be complicated. Lots of people earn good money from their own small business, doing what they love. I DON’T HAVE THE KNOW-HOW No-one does when they first start out - which is where #BOSSIT can help. It shows you how. And if there are things you’re not good at, such as planning ahead, writing, reading or budgeting, or aspects that worry you, like keeping accounts or paying tax, then there’s free and friendly training and support to help. I DON’T WANT TO LOSE MY INCOME You don’t need to. If you are already earning or receiving benefits, #BOSSIT shows you how you can add to your income. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? Come along to one of our short, lively, friendly events in your neighbourhood and hear from local people who are already #BOSSINGIT successfully. We’ll help you discover what you could do to earn money and how to go about it. There will be a friendly, experienced local business advisor who will be able to answer any questions you may have. Then YOU decide if you want to explore further.
