After working on a friend’s market stall Jeannette decided she wanted to operate her own one. She had never previously run her own business although she had experience working in retail and fashion.
Consequently she contacted the Westminster Enterprise Centre for help. She attended a full programme of business start-up and development workshops. Jeannette also regularly met with her business advisor.
He helped her produce a business plan and financial forecasts that enabled Jeannette to successfully apply for a £500 business grant. This funding was used towards her initial stock of shopping bags.
Currently Jeannette is test trading at Maida Hill Market in London W9.

'Introduction to Self Employment Seminar' August 4th 2011 Westminster Enterprise Centre
"This session was great" Laurie is very approachable and gifted in expressing the basics of setting up a business. I found the session very inspiring and would recommend anyone looking to be their own boss to attend a session.
