Ed GoodmanHead Roadie for Social Media & Freelance Heroes
Most people start a business to do something that they love or to create a better lifestyle for themselves. I work with these people, through mentoring and coaching, to help them through the early stages of their journey. Together, we bring their business to life and work towards them making a profit while enjoying your journey too.
I’m also the co-founder of the Cambridge Business Lounge, a freelance social media trainer, and author of “New Business, Next Steps – The all-in-one guide to Managing, Marketing and Growing your small business”.
Why I’m Supporting #MicroBizMattersDay
In 2015, over 500,000 new businesses were born in the UK, adding to the 5m other micro-businesses already trading. This means a lot of people have a powerful collective voice, not to mention making these owners the largest political voting pool in the country, and a fantastic resource from which to learn from and inspire each other. Each year, #MicroBizMatters Day is a wonderful opportunity that brings micro-businesses together that can prove invaluable in everyone’s professional journey to success.
For me, I’m often encouraging the practice that being self-employed is absolutely not the same as being by-yourself-employed, which makes supporting # MicroBizMatters Day a no-brainer.
Also, too often I hear stories of micro businesses suffering from a key client who has gone bust or suffering potentially fatal issues with technology. This is why, in addition to the fantastic themed hours – featuring some extremely knowledgeable and inspiring guests – I’m excited by the launch of “Hit The Rocks?” allowing micro business owners to apply for grants to help them in these troubled times which will allow them to keep trading.
I hope we get a million micro-business owners to tune in on the day and share their experiences and I’m honoured to be adding my voice and support to #MicroBizMatters Day on January 12th.
