I went to CDC with the intention of getting help on the technical side of setting up a business – for example the accounting or the insurance requirements. They helped me with those aspects in no time.
However, the biggest thing that I needed was the confidence to make the leap into something I’d never done before. The advisor at CDC gave me that confidence by arming me with some of the basics, but most importantly, with their sheer enthusiasm for my project, they convinced me to ‘go for it’. Without that, I might not have done it. I might have opted for the safe option of a 9-to-5 job – and I’m so glad that I listened to those positive voices and banished my doubts.
