Well what a busy few months since my last post for July Medway Open Studios phew!
I’ve been keeping myself out of mischief with a variety of shoots of some fantastic people and events in Medway.
I was very pleased to have been awarded Medway Councils Business Start up grant in September.
I had studied the Entrepreneurship course at the University for the Creative Arts, which was tailored specifically for creative people wanting to start up a business. I found the 15 week course invaluable, giving an overview (and some well needed refresher pointers) of accounting, advice regarding networking and general business practice for your creative business. At the end of the course I had built all the necessary bits to put together my business plan for Nikki Price Photography, I discovered that Medway Council were offering Start up Grants for new business so decided to apply. My Entrepreneurship course at UCA helped the application immensely and a meeting with the Business Advisor (provided free by Medway council) was extremely useful in getting me on the right track with my business plans.
Those who live in Medway might have seen the little article of me in the Medway Matters October/November 2013.
