Successful Mums Business Start Up course

50 Local Mums: Take your first steps in business this October

Calling all budding business women!

Successful Mums is bringing its popular Business Start-up Course to Croydon this October, offering Local Mums the chance to turn their business ideas into reality. 

The leading career and business training company has been running its much-loved Business Start-up course for the past four years, giving mums the practical help and support they need to become their own bosses. Successful Mums is now set to help 50 Local Mums start or develop their own small businesses.

Designed specifically for mums who want to work flexibly around their family lives, the six-week course helps women focus on their goals and make real week-by-week progress. It covers a range of business topics, including business planning, self-management, finance, cash flow and marketing to gain customers. The course is accredited, so graduates also walk away with a recognised qualification to boost their CVs and business credibility. 

Successful Mums founder Jane Knight says: “The Business Start-up Diploma is designed to help our mums give their businesses the best possible start. We are thrilled to be bringing it to Local Mums for the first time and are looking forward to supporting these women on their business journeys.”

Enterprising mums signing up for the course will gain essential business knowledge, insider tips and practical advice, as well as the chance to tap into the Successful Mums network and connect with business mentors. Working as part of a group of 15 like-minded women, they will also benefit from the ideas and support of their peers.

Recent course grad Emma Chamberlain credits Successful Mums with helping her get her exciting new business, Mama + Max off the ground. She says: “A huge thank you to all the team at Successful Mums for your continued support, inspiration and encouragement. The Business Start-up course not only provided the business tools I was missing, it provided my first four customers, which was the springboard I needed to build confidence and get started!”
