More than 1,100 new businesses are started in Britain each day, but only one in three of those entrepreneurs is female. Women average 50% less starting capital than men and currently receive less than 1% of venture capital. Women are also substantially less likely to reach a business turnover of over £1m than men.
It’s about time we talked about money.
Money is emotional and so often fear and guilt holds us back from being successful or asking for help when we are starting or growing our own business.
At the latest in our series of It’s About Time events, award-winning financial planner and money coach Catherine Morgan will share six common money blocks. She will help you to see how these could be holding you back in your business and give you tips on how to control them.
Catherine will also be sharing her powerful personal story of how after almost losing her son to meningitis at just five weeks old, and suffering with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and anxiety, she got out of her 9-5 job and created an online business to help women to be financially resilient, creating freedom from money – not money for freedom.
The event, run by NatWest Cymru, the University of South Wales, Darwin Gray Solicitors and the Federation of Small Businesses, will also include roundtable discussions, a Q&A with a high-profile panel and plenty of opportunity to connect with other women in business.
It’s About Time We Talked About Money will start with registration, networking and coffee at 9.30am and will close at 2.30pm.
