Supporting your Entrepreneurial Spirit
Some say that entrepreneurs are born, others believe that they are made. Personally, I believe both to be true. There is no doubt, that there have been and indeed, still are some people who have a naturally gifted mind for entrepreneurialism, or to put more plainly, they want to make the world a better place, and can spot that which is not working properly and fix it, whilst creating a profitable business in the process.
No matter what age you are, there is always lots to learn, not least of which because the world is evolving so quickly at the moment. We will all be eternal ‘newbies’ for the foreseeable future if we want to continue to live life to the full.
Before you sigh and say that you are too old to learn new skills, it has been scientifically proven that you are NEVER too old to learn and it is actually good for your mental health to keep your brain occupied and growing.
If you are serious about becoming self-employed then, (like the term or not) you are embarking on a journey of self-development, personal growth and achievement and Zeal for Business would like to be your tour guide or travel companion, whichever you feel that you need.
It is a well-trodden path now, as we have worked with hundreds of new start-up owners over the last 10 years and have been self-employed ourselves for many years.

The Business Pre Start-up Journey
The Zeal for Business Training Programme is made up of two main courses, pre-start, then planning partly delivered via a recorded/live video conference recorded presentations with follow-along workbooks or as part of an on-location workshop. The complete package includes everything that you need to know to take you from initial idea to the registration of the fledgeling business with inland revenue:
Each course can be purchased separately or as part of the complete programme, but we do recommend that you work through the modules in order, unless there are topics and skills that you can already tick off.
We start with the Pre Business Start-up training which takes you from that initial glimmer of an idea through to the exploratory stage where you are able to see how your idea will make enough money for you to live on in those early start-up weeks or months.
Once you are happy that you have a viable business model, the next VITAL stage is to bring your idea to life and create an identity and plan for your business. (There is no point in doing this if the idea is not viable.) We have our Business Start-up Course to guide you through each stage of this process.
The ‘Future Soft Skills‘, essential for everyone wanting to stay ahead of the competition and the ‘robots’ are embedded throughout the training.
Business Skills Training Learning Outcomes
After completing this training programme, you will be able to:
Everyone thinking of starting a business has a number of concerns, sometimes holding them back. We can help eradicate your fears.
By the enormous opportunities and the benefits/rewards that can enrich your life as a result.
There is no greater feeling than the personal satisfaction gained from taking a glimmer of an idea and bringing it to life.
This is not a fluffy ‘save the world’ type decision. It’s about identifying something that could be improved on and believing that you can make a difference.
Save time and money by learning from the mistakes of others and how to adopt the best practice in 21st Century business.
Re-focus your mind to that on an entrepreneur.
