I’ve just come across some information about a new mentoring service available in Oxfordshire.  Free mentoring and counselling is available to anyone wanting to start their own business or for existing small businesses which are looking to expand.  It’s being offered by TBAC, Thames Business Advice Centre.  More information can be found at http://www.tbac.org.uk.

 The Federation for Small Businesses’ chairman John Wright, in his New Year message, said we small business owners are going to be the people to pull the country through this economic crisis.  It sounds to me like we’d better all get to work!  Mind you, in the Federation’s magazine it also says 68% of us work more than 46 hours a week.  So perhaps with a bit of free mentoring help, we can cut back the hours we work and save the economy at the same time.  No pressure then?
