What do people say about the programme?


"Taking the LYCB course has truly impacted my business in such a positive way. As a relatively new business I found myself charging forward and Lesley allowed me to pause and revisit those essential steps for a successful business. It made to to understand my client base more, to think how I showcase my products, my future self and what my business stands for. I have found the guest speakers on the course extremely useful and have accessed them further since the course to continue building on my skills in areas such as website building and my own personal growth through meditation. It’s been great to meet other new business owners and share our journey together. I would recommend this course to anybody planning to set up a craft business and those newly set up or feeling stuck".

"I can highly recommend this course, even if you are not quite ready to launch yourself yet or you don't even think you want to turn your craft into a business, I still say it's such value for money, who knows how many doors can be opened.... "

"As a complete newbie to this due to finishing a career in uniform, I knew absolutely nothing about starting up a business and what it entails. Although I am dipping my toes in the water I found this course full of information".
