New around these here parts.....

Postby cleaver » Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:06 am

Hi Everyone, another newbie!

Been reading this brilliant forum for a while now, and finally got round to signing up.

I’ve got some space above a garage in Surrey, and hoping to go pro in the fullness of time – if my skills are up to it.

The plan is to get my skills up to speed framing the wife’s work (she paints) and let the business grow organically...word of mouth and all that.

When I’m confident, I’ll put the marketing masterplan into action (well, a door drop and tacky website!). Will probably do the Wessex course soon, as it seems decent value and worthwhile.

Thanks for all I’ve learned so far in reading the forum, and advance apologies for when I duplicate a question you’ve already had etc

All the very best. :D

Welcome Dan!
The search box top right is really useful for finding a topic.
Someone once recommended I read the entire forum content, which I did over 2 days.
There is an immense amount of information available here!!
Good luck :rock:
