Working for yourself

3  hour  workshop

Do you have a growing urge to be your own boss? Are you fed up with trying to fit your family round your job, and wish it could be the other way round?

This inspirational and practical workshop is for women who are thinking about becoming self-employed.

Whether you are a budding ‘mumpreneur’ or are considering a freelance or portfolio career, or buying a franchise, our Working for Yourself workshop will help you on your way.

What will I gain from the workshop?

You’ll leave the Working for Yourself workshop with a clearer idea about whether ‘working for yourself’ is for you. You’ll also know more about what’s involved and what to do next. We’ll guide you through these areas:

  • Thinking through what is motivating you
  • Exploring the qualities, skills and experience that will give you the best chance of success
  • The different ways you can work for yourself
  • Techniques to generate business ideas
  • Business planning
  • What you need to do to get started


Our 3 hour Working for Yourself workshop costs £49.50.  You will receive a £10 discount if you have previously attended any of our other workshops.

What will the workshop be like?

It will be friendly and supportive!

What makes Women Like Us really different, is that our qualified career coaches have empathy that comes from years of working with women who are reassessing their career options.

We’ve helped many women who have reached the decision that working for themselves is the best option for getting the work flexibility they need. We understand what it’s like to be starting something new or trying to juggle the needs of a family and a new business venture.

It will be fun too. The workshop is an interactive session with activities and exercises in small groups so there is plenty of opportunity to meet women in the same situation as you.

And there will be a maximum of 15 participants – a small enough group for everyone to get some individual support.

“A great starting point on my journey to setting up my own business. It was motivating to share ideas with other like-minded women.”
