Meet the people who turned their passion into profit

In the old days people just stuck at their jobs whether they liked them or not – for the security, the tradition and for the reason that simply, without the internet, being an entrepreneur was far more difficult.

Now, with connectivity, access to market is now easier than ever. As a result, working for yourself is increasingly popular. Last month’s latest figures, which compare April to June 2016 with the same period from the previous year, show the number of self-employed people increased by 257,000 to 4.8 million (that’s 15% of all people in work) and it’s growing each month.

As this is a topic close to my heart, I’ve been speaking to some clever folk who were unhappy in their 9-5 roles and so turned their passion into highly profitable business ventures.

CIPR Public Relations Show 2013

The PR Show 2013 – An affordable conference

We’re liking the format of the Chartered Institute of Public Relation’s PR Show 2013. Set in London on 26 November, the speaker programme has a pay-as-you-go format of 45 minute speeches, by industry experts, on a wide range of topics.

In the past you would have to go to your boss, with begging bowl in hand, and convince him or her that the several hundred pounds’ worth of investment was worth a day’s training and travel. But CIPR have brought the cost down and the level of attractiveness up. Each session is only £18. We’re looking forward to the education programme, the CIPR taster workshops, as well as the opportunity for valuable networking (and socialising) with our PR colleagues.

See you on the 26th…
