Can I use the workbook to start another business?
Yes, if you complete the workshop, you are welcome to use the materials to start as many businesses as you like. However, you are not allowed to share the materials with other people who have not paid to participate in the workshop.
What happens if I miss a session?
Unfortunately, if you miss a session you will miss out on the conversation that takes place. You will still have access to the workbook information. There will not be ‘make-up’ sessions offered. If you know in advance that you are not going to be able to make a session in person, there may be an opportunity for the session to be recorded (for you to view later), however sufficient notice will be required to allow for the technology to be set up prior to the start of that days sessions.
Are meals included in the cost?
Meals are NOT provided during the workshop. However, you are welcome to bring your own food for consumption during or prior to the workshop. Several cafes are located in easy walking distance.
