Some of you may not be aware of a service that supports businesses in the area and is subsidised by councils. Nelson Tasman Business Trust (Business Assist) is exactly what it says – they exist to help businesses, small and large.
You simply make contact through their website https://www.ntbt.co.nz/ . You will be offered a free consultation and they will outline how they can help. They hold workshops on subjects such ass Digital Marketing, Wellness, Leadership and Succession planning on a regular basis. There are many more subjects covered besides. Most of these training sessions are either free or have a small cover charge.
Business Assist also have a Networking morning tea every month. So you can meet other business owners and share any wins, problems, or successes. Meeting other business owners makes you much less isolated.
NZ Business Mentoring
If you need more personalized help they can offer business Mentoring in conjunction with Business Mentors NZ. Call Business Assist or register at https://www.businessmentors.org.nz online for a mentor. Gina will assess your needs and find a match of skills that you are missing. Sometimes it is easier to work with someone who is less emotionally involved with your business and give you good practical help. “The experienced and independent viewpoint of a Mentor is invaluable”.
It may be that you need to grow your business and need direction as to how; or you may be a newbie to Digital Marketing and need some help with that; you may need help with a specific project.
Having been in business myself and used the services of a Mentor, I can highly recommend them.
Just remember you are not alone in this journey, use the services of lawyers, accountants and places like Business Assist to help you along in business.
