This week, I started a course about bringing a new idea into business. My aim is to take the reading and writing groups out to local communities as a cultural and community enterprise. It has only involved a few odd hours this first week. I watched introductory videos and read articles – but the main activity has been getting to know the community of people participating. We were advised to read and write comments on reasons why we’re doing this course. Also to like and follow some of the other participants, mentors and experts.
In one discussion on what is an entrepreneur, I made the point that social enterprise is something I want to know more about. I want to be a service provider, and also a peer mentor for anyone wanting to try reading and writing groups in their own setting.
