Hi Virtual

“I’d worked in the public sector for virtually all my career where there are strict policies and procedures that govern what you do, suddenly I had the freedom to make my own decisions but no idea about the best way to do that and build a successful business.”

“I can’t recommend the Business Start Up Course delivered by Supporting the Unsung Hero enough! It has helped my business grow, I now have a steady client base and have time to enjoy my photography rather than worry about whether I’m running my business effectively. A big thank you to Sarah and the team who have been supportive throughout.”

The programme’s experienced mentors have helped me to develop a really in-depth commercial understanding that was essential to growing my business. Importantly, it has given me the opportunity to meet other like-minded people and provided me with an invaluable support network.”
