The Risk Free Business Startup by Patrick Powers

If you are putting your dreams on hold because you think starting a business is risky or costly YOU REALLY NEED to hear this. Starting a business doesn't have to be risky. There are actually many ways to do it for peanuts... even free or letting other people take the risk. And I'm not talking about getting investors.


These are some of the priceless strategies we will cover:

- Finding creative ways of starting and funding your ultimate business by NOT starting it.. for now. I know it sounds weird but one of the speakers friends followed this recipe and built a small empire.

- 2 ways to use other peoples money and contacts  - and no its NOT lending or Using investors.

- 4 types of businesses you can start for less than £300.


And much more.

So who is our speaker?

Patrick Powers started his first business at 21 and went bankrupt really fast. In that process he lost his home, his car... everything. After that experience he got "a bit" risk averse and began his quest for ways to start a business with little or no risk.

Finally... 10 years ago he got his act together. He started his first successful business for £200 and retired a year later at 36. Since then he has been travelling the world enjoying the lifestyle and teaching marketing and persuasion strategies.

He also started www.EntrepreneursInLondon.co.uk with just £70. This has now grown into London's biggest entrepreneurial Meetup with over 4,300 members and growing about 100 people a week.

Don't let greedy bankers and investors decide your future.
Don't let your dreams be stranded because you think you need a bunch of money to start.

This is for the people who are saying "next year I'll start my business". Or I'll start my business WHEN I get the funding. Well... we all know that day will never come for most people.

But with what you learn on this training it could be THIS week  - even tomorrow (well the day AFTER the training of course)

 

Before contacting me, please read the following FAQs as over 90% of the email I get are answered below.

 

FAQs

Booking tickets: To book a ticket you need to click on “Attend” on the right hand side of the page. You will then be taken through to the payment page where you need a credit or debit card. Please note that although Paypal is used for payment, you do not need a Paypal account, just a credit or debit card. We are not able to take payment in any other form. You can book up to 3 tickets maximum (you plus 2 guests). Tickets are not available on the door.

 

Tickets are non-transferable and can not be sold to other members. We have a waiting list system in place.

 

Venue: St James Church Conference Centre. Walk down Piccadilly until you reach Costa Coffee (part of the Waterstone’s building). We are then down the black metal stairs located about 10ft away from Costa.

 

Time: The Doors open at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7pm sharp. Please note that we no longer allow late admittance to the talks. Late arrivals are extremely disruptive to the speaker, the audience members and the recording of the event. If you arrive past 7pm and the speaker has started, then you will not be permitted to enter the venue until the break at 7:45pm.

 

Waiting list: If you are on the waiting list then you will be sent an automatic notification should a place become available. Once this email it sent, it is first come first served. You need to change your RSVP to “going” and then make payment. If it is not allowing you to change your RSVP then it is because someone else has already got in there before you.

 

Food and drinks: Please feel free to bring in your own drinks, refreshments are not provided. Please however refrain from bringing in food.

 

Cancelling tickets and refunds: If you are no longer able to attend an event for any reason, then please change your RSVP to “not going”. Processing refunds costs us both money in the way of Paypal fees. Therefore it is much better to credit you onto another talk (where spaces are available).

A refund should be seen as a second option and it may take up to a week to process. To request a refund please email me directly at matt at interestingtalks dot co dot uk (please make sure you have changed your RSVP by this time). Please note that if you do not nominate an email address then I will use the one you sent from to send the funds to.

 

Speaking at events: If you are interested in speaking at a future event, please email me direct at matt at interestingtalks dot co dot uk and put “speakers pack” in the subject bar. I will then send you all the details.

If you question still has not been answered then please email me at matt at interestingtalks dot co dot uk.

    Very interesting - and exciting talk yesterday. I loved the fact that Patrick gave plenty of practical advice and his honesty about opening the business. It also brought few other ideas, and confirmed what I need to do. I am going to take this very first step very soon. Thank you for the encouragement.
    And thanks Matt for organising.

    Patrick gave some very useful advice I am sure to use in my efforts to start up my website. I like that he was blunt about things too. The venue was perfect for a talk - not too big, and with opportunity to chat with the people around me. Overall a valuable experience for me!
