If you’re a woman in business or thinking of starting your own business, The Women In Business Radio Show features women just like you.

It’s about shouting out to get the help you need to move to the next stage.

It’s also about giving you a platform to share what you’re doing.

What the show is NOT about. It’s not about being awesome all the time. It’s not about super-women who have raised 16 kids, built a garage and launched yet another multi-million-pound enterprise all before breakfast.

The Women In Business Radio Show is there for you when you’re still in your onesie at 3 in the afternoon; there’s an unpleasant blob of something on your boobs; and, you don’t feel like going out to that networking meeting because you will have to talk to people.

In short – it’s about REAL women in business.

    Fundraising For Your Business

    Fundraising For Your Business

    How you can find and apply for funding to help start and grow your business

    We’re joined in the studio today by Gary Parker of CNT Associates, who specialise in helping women get funding for their business.

    During the interview we ask the following questions:

    What are the different types of funding?
    The key factors you must consider before you apply for funding?
    What do funders want from you and how can you demonstrate you’ve got what it takes?
    Is there a real or perceived barrier for business women to get funding?

    Plus a few specific examples of funding providers who work with women as well as some practical tips for getting started approaching potential funders.

    We also discuss different types of business plan and introduce the concept of business mapping and where it fits in with your business plan.

    As usual, your show host was Sian Murphy with Laura Lawrence and Jackie Groundsell.

    KEY Takeaway

    Before you seek funding, decide your WHY behind starting and running your business. If you’ve turned your passion and life’s mission into your business this probably won’t fit with the outcome an investor is after. The investor is probably looking for global growth to sell for a massive profit further down the line. This means you’ve lost control of your brand and your business. So decide now what you want to achieve and how your business fits into your life.

    Start Up Brainstorm

    Start Up Brainstorm

    Wow! In this show we blasted through some of the things you need to consider when you’re starting a business for the first time.

    As everyone taking part had started their own business, and was also working with other business women, this was really about sharing some of the mistakes we made and things we wish we had known when we first got going.

    That said, wherever you are in your business journey, there is always more learning, stuff goes wrong, we need to pivot to survive and we often need to reinvent and start again. So there is something in here for everyone.

    As the weeks move on, we will take the key points out of this show and expand on them - so this is the groundwork, the key points to think about.

    We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it.

    In the ‘studio’ today were host Sian Murphy, Laura Lawrence, Jackie Groundsell and guest Adelle Martin, founder of The Women In Business Mid Life Club.
