Busy Busy Busy

Has been a couple of days longer than expected between posting but have been quite busy for one reason…

My business plan has been accepted.

I now have I think roughly two weeks to get everything set up. Still working on websites and have settled on this one http://pertech.org.uk/pertech

Figured to visit the local tax office and learnt they had moved so I figure I will do that all online and just ring if I get stuck.

Also been chasing up whereabouts I can advertise cheaply. From shop windows to parish magazines.

It has been sent..!

Sent in
Just wrong isn’t it?

It has been sent! Again fingers crossed!

As of yesterday my draft of the business plan (version 3.1 technically!) The third one was great and just a couple of minor corrections that took no more than five minutes to change.) Has been sent for assessment.

I should hopefully hear back by mid-next week.

The waiting is going to kill me however but now I can dedicate my time to building my own website as I keep telling myself.

Now the fun also starts to start getting my name out there so I can start pulling in clients. This is what its all about at the end of the day.

Still knowing it has been sent is in itself a bit of a relief. I know my mentor Tim Light wouldn’t have sent it off if he believed it wasn’t good enough to be sent in so to speak.

I am going to start taking in bookings if any of you are kind enough to share this or my Facebook page or even just tell people I would be most grateful.

Third Time May Just be the Charm

Had a meeting with my mentor today. We spent a good hour going over the business plan. Using my second draft we made changes and this afternoon I made the necessary updates. And here it is!

Behold! The business plan in all its glory.
Behold! The business plan in all its glory.

The third draft now containing the new changes and updates along with the Cash flow spreadsheet have all been emailed off. I think there may be possibly one more change or two albeit minor issues I think I have picked up on. I have let my mentor know and either this one or the next one will be submitted for final assessment

I’ll find out by Wednesday hopefully either way. In the mean time I can concentrate now on building my own website. To which you can view my progress with it here http://gator4077.hostgator.com/~daverave/pertech/ of course that wont be the domain name when done. pertech.org.uk will take over when its completed.

I have another meeting to attend on the 17th with Enterprise First which is basically a start-up Q&A session with the chance to hand out business cards with other start ups.

Time to start getting word out now.

We have a name. We have a domain!

With little than less than a month to go I finally settled on a name and obtained a domain name.


It will for the time being forward to this blog. When the name servers and forwarding etc have all taken effect. Meanwhile I shall begin building what will be my proper site behind the scenes.

Update from yesterday when I sent the business draft in for 2nd review after making the changes my mentor recommended. He phoned me up and said a few changes need to be made but think we can finalize it now and arranged to meet next week to do just that.

All go for me really!

And like to say hello to everyone on twitter as I have started to pick up a few followers. Hi to you all and you are very welcome 🙂
