Make Money Doing What You Love!

Updated: Aug 12, 2022

Have you got a passion, skill or hobby that could make you money? Are you feeling the squeeze and need to make your hobby pay for itself? Maybe you’ve already started selling and want to ‘do it properly’?

Explore the potential of turning your hobby or passion into a business with a free workshop brought to Midsomer Norton by Cool Ventures in partnership with Bath and North East Somerset Third Sector Group (3SG) on Wednesday, 24th August from 10 am - 1 pm at Wansdyke Business Centre (behind Western Power, just off Radstock Road, BA3 2BB).

This interactive session will give you tips on how to make money from your skills, hobby or passion and is FREE for residents based within Bath and North East Somerset.

During the session you will be introduced to essential things to consider, with basic information and tools to help you get started - and turn that dream into reality! Subjects covered during the session include the pros and cons of setting up on your own, essential tools and information you need to know before you start; plus a deeper understanding of the reality of self-employment. There will also be space for you to reflect - is this really right for you? Is your idea viable? If you decide it is, you'll also leave the session with the confidence to plan your vision and take your next step.

This workshop is aimed at individuals exploring self-employment, are thinking about setting up their own business or are in the early days of starting up. Get unstuck and discover the possibilities!

The session will be led by Business Mentor, Blogger and Author, Amy Morse. Amy has been supporting small businesses for over ten years across various projects. As a creative writer, published author and avid blogger, she helps others to embrace their story and develop their small business with courage, confidence and creativity.
