I have been an entrepreneur for over 20 years. I have baked, made chocolates, bottled jams, made bread, attended many a Farmers' Market; ran food experience workshops, given talks and demonstrations to groups of over 100 people, hosted lunches and catered for private parties. Prior to developing my food obsession, I ran my own private complementary therapy school, and also taught adult education classes. I have helped hundreds of people go on to start their own businesses working from home and yes, it is possible to make a significant income, even part-time; with methods I have personally used. In all of this, my businesses have been self-funded, so I know how difficult it can be trying to set something up when you’re working paycheque to paycheque.
One of the most important things you can do when you start a business, is to surround yourself with likeminded people. People who undertand your entrepreneurial spirit and the drive that makes you plough ahead despite all obstacles.
I launched Coast Academy as a tool to help creative startups and entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

I add to them regularly so do make sure you sign-up to keep receiving access.

If you haven't already done so, sign-up so you can receive immediate access to the free business resources page. Then I'd like to direct you to two initial workbooks that will give you some hints and tips on how you can start a business working from home even if you don't have any money. Starting a business from home on Zero Budget and Go Fund Your Business which gives you lots of links to finding free funding sources as well as help for people on benefits, it’s well worth a look.
I have plenty of experience and a passion to help people start their own business. I truly believe working from home doing what you love is the ultimate freedom, but it has to pay the bills and you have to control it, not it control you. Working from home enables me to look after my elderly widowed mother, something I would not be able to do if I had a full-time job.
If I haven't already said so, let me repeat: I am passionate about helping people achieve their dreams! If you have a dream to create a business even if at the moment you don't really know what that is. I can help you.
