Your step-by-step roadmap on how to start a business 

Keen to bring your business dreams to life, but you don’t know where or when to start? Then this masterclass is for you. We’ll go through the basics of how to turn your idea into a sustainable business whilst still keeping costs down and your business lean.

After hitting rock bottom when her toddler son was admitted to hospital with infected eczema covering 75 per cent of his body, pharmacist Julia Simmonds took matters into her own hands. She got to work creating a line of all-natural bath soaks under the brand name Itchy Baby Co, sorting out her son’s eczema and founding a business in the process.

In this masterclass Julia takes you through how she did it, sharing her business roadmap and how she spent her start-up dollars, from trademarking, insurance, branding, packaging, ecommerce, shipping to social media and everything in between.

Learn the ins and outs of what it takes to build a start-up business from the ground up, and walk away with a roadmap of your own.
