What outcomes can I expect?

Everyone has a slightly different experience of the programme.  But at the end of the six month programme you may expect:

  • To have clarity on the new direction that you want your life to go in.
  • To have a better understanding of yourself, your personal strengths and areas of opportunity.
  • Have a clear grasp of your personal values, what drives and motivates you.
  • Become part of a strong and growing community of FreedomPreneurs who are travelling the same path as you.
  • Understand how easy it is to create your own vision and launch a business.
  • Discover tools and skills that can help you to manage your new business and communicate your message.
  • Have the confidence to keep moving forward with your personal goals.
  • Have a platform for growth and a lifetime of support.

This programme has been designed to guide you through the process of launching your own business and becoming a FreedomPreneur.  But remember that it is not a magic pill.  This process takes time, and effort, requires commitment and the journey it takes you on may not necessarily go in a straight line.

To develop your idea, your products, identify your market and create strategies for launch all take time.  To get your business to the level your desire may take many months or even years.  You will may find yourself in places you didn’t mean to go, but that is OK.  The satisfaction that comes from  creating your life, rather than accepting the one that is given to you, will sustain you as you do the work required to make your business a success, in the form that most pleases you.

How can I get the most out of the FreedomPreneur Business Programme?

There are a few things that you can do to make sure that you receive the most benefit from the programme.

  1. Stay Open
    This is new ground for you. What happens to a lot of people when they are out of their comfort zone is they close up. Worry, fear and hesitation are natural reactions to new experiences,  but don’t let them stop you from being open to change and moving forward.
  2. Take Care Of Yourself
    This is going to be a challenging time for you.  So make sure that you are in good enough condition to not only get through, but to thrive!  Eat well, drink plenty of water, get plenty of sleep.   Exercise regularly.  This will help you mentally as well as physically.
  3. Trust The Process
    This is a planned process. It takes time.  We go through each step in turn and you need to do them in order.  What we do at the start will be used throughout the entire process and is very important.
  4. Love Yourself
    The journey you are about to embark on is full of doubt, frustration and other negative feelings and experiences.  Be kind to yourself.  Reward your successes and be patient with the failures.  You need to challenge yourself and push hard, but you must also know when to put the brakes on and give yourself a break.  As mentioned above, the process takes time, and your journey to become a FreedomPreneur has only just begun.
  5. Be Wary & Wise
    As you go through the process you will have pressure to give up, to maintain the status quo.  Your friends and family may not understand your decision.  Remember your long term goal.  Every action you take should be with that in mind.
  6. Lean In To The Community
    We have a very strong community of FreedomPreneurs.  They have been there and are ready to help out if you need someone to talk to you, or a little business advice.  Your accountability buddies are also there to help you, support and encourage you.  You can also visit the monthly FreedomPreneurs In London meetings to help you stay focused. The more you put in to the community the more you will get out of it.
Where is it held?

The FreedomPreneur Business Programme is currently delivered at Moor Place, 1 Fore St, London EC2Y 5EJ.

There may be a change of venue in the future, but it will always be in central London and you will be notified well in advance.  Travel costs aren’t included in the progamme fee.

Who will be on the programme?

We have helped men and women start freedom businesses in over 40 different industries including:

Fitness, Photography, Social Media, Digital Communications, Video Production, Health & Wellness, Business, Coaching, Mentoring, Leadership Development, Hair & Beauty, Legal & Administration, Finance, Marketing, Hospitality, Customer Service, Retail, E-commerce, Jewellery & Fashion, Importing, Speaking, Personal Development.

What if I am not ready?

That is a natural feeling and one that you have to consider. But think on this as well.

The programme has been specifically designed to answer the questions that you have and to give you the knowledge that you will need in order to become a Freedompreneur and make following your passions your full time job.

So if you don’t feel ready because you have a few questions, or aren’t sure that this is the right time, then taking action will give you the clarity and the answers you seek.

If on the other hand you don’t feel ready because this is the first time you have given serious thought to this subject, ask yourself this.  Do you want this year to be the year that you take massive action and create massive change in your life?

Is it just for people that want to be coaches?

No.  The FreedomPreneur Business Programme can help anyone that wants to make following their passion their full time job.  You don’t have to have a job in the city, or come from an entrepreneurial background.  You don’t need a degree. The FreedomPreneur Method will give you the tools you need to take your idea to launch and beyond.

About The FreedomPreneur Business Academy

Why do you do what you do?

Great Question!  We started our own business instead of returning to employment, a few years ago now.  We wanted to have a lot of time for our new family, for our friends and just doing what we wanted to do. A business that could be successful around the lifestyle that we wanted to lead.

Well, it worked! And now we want to help everyone have a life that they love.  You can read more on our ‘about us’ page by clicking here.
