Small Business / Self-Employment Start-Up

Our early work taught us much about how to shift mind-set from thinking and behaving as an employee to one of being your own boss.  The key points were put into the Penguin paperback ‘Starting a Business on a Shoestring’ (1988).  Our clients came from our TDA Outplacement Service activity.  The programme model created is called the Entrepreneur Development Programme (EDP) which is essentially an empowerment or enterprise release experience.  The model is set out below.

For more information, please see the Self-Employment section of the Working Free website.  Take me there.

This provides a set of self-help notes and checklists for those interested in going self-employed.  TDA scripted these materials for Working Free in 2017 / early 2018.
