Are you self-employed and building a business? Want affordable one-to-one support that is tailored to you and your needs?
Start up Coaching at Union Street  is a scheme offering people like you business advice or bespoke coaching support. Subsidised by Big Lottery funding you can sign up to three sessions, at a greatly reduced rate of £37.50 per 90 minute session. When you apply you’ll have two options: 
Business Development Support: Choose this option for one-to-one sessions with growth advisor Morgan Killick. Morgan is a successful entrepreneur with 15 years of business experience and 5 years experience in an advisory capacity for various business support agencies. Morgan is familiar with many issues faced by startups and early stage companies (including freelancers and social enterprises), and can particularly help you with business planning, forecasting and legal structures, as well advise on general growth strategy, strategic marketing and access to finance. If you are ready to talk about your business challenges, and how they might be overcome, just get in touch!
Leadership coaching. Choose this option for one-to-one sessions with Jennifer McCanna ACC, associate certified coach with the International Coaching Federation. Jennifer coaches individuals who are seeking Big Change. Jennifer will help you create a vision for your business, then break that down into realistic and tangible goals. Your work together may include overcoming self-limiting beliefs or behaviours which may be holding you and your business back. Jennifer also works with freelancers who miss the regular support of a line manager to help them with things like preparing for a difficult conversation or big meeting, seeking feedback from clients as well as short term and long term planning. Jennifer has a background as a fundraiser in the charity sector and for the last 6 years has worked as a coach and workshop facilitator with clients from a range of backgrounds, including those who run their own business.
