I am very honoured and delighted to be associated with Outset Swindon as an ambassador for their services. As Outset themselves say:
‘Starting a business for the first time can be an unsettling experience, with lots of new obstacles to navigate. Being able to talk to someone who has been through that same experience can make a huge difference for new business owners, often providing a much needed confidence boost.
That’s why local business start-up support provider Outset Swindon has launched a new Ambassador programme, giving clients who have previously benefited from the service’s fully funded support the chance to give back to the local community by mentoring future business owners.
Ambassadors are former Outset clients who have gone on to create successful new businesses in Swindon. As part of this new initiative, they will pledge to donate 24 hours – or one day – of their time to support new business owners, over the course of a year.”
One way in which I try to help other businesses that have been through the Outset programme is to share blog posts about their business on the Swindon in Business section of my Born again Swindonian blog. The posts on this section are not all Outset clients but many of them are.
There’s a diverse collection of posts in that section so do take the time to take a look: http://swindonian.me/category/swindon-in-business/ Included in the mix is camping and glamping accessories from 4 Points Leisure; some lovely hand-made jewellery from Catherine Jay and gorgeous organic skin care from Pink&Green. Born again Swindonian has a good readership of its own – it’s fast approaching 50,000 hits in just under two years – but I also tweet out links to the posts and place them on various social media platforms, at the time of publishing and then intermittently. I’ve also now created a Pinterest board as another means of sharing images from those and other Born again Swindonian posts: https://uk.pinterest.com/amaatk123/born-again-swindonian/
And additionally I’ve created a Pinterest board for AA Editorial Services: https://uk.pinterest.com/amaatk123/aa-editorial-services/
