I tihnk theyre phasing out the appointments thing in favour of a new web based thing theyre pushing

 

https://online.businesslink.gov.uk/bdotg/ac...58805&r.s=h

 

thinks its in there somewhere

 

 

Yeah thats what's prompted me to try and get an appointment as that web resoucre thing is just far too much info for me to take in!

 

well its as Jan says, Ive actually a printout from businesslink here that suggests a site called www.mentorsme.co.uk for actual personal business mentoring so they might be helpful

Cheers lads, some helpful links in there.

 

I've e-mailed business link to see what advice and help they can offer, and will check out the mentor site too when I get the chance.

Went to see a Buisiness Link advisor and went to a couple of their night-time seminars following redundancy .

 

Every one of them was an arrogant, smarmy, obnoxious 'im alright jack' type patronising cunt .

TBH all I want from them is confirmation that I'm registered to pay tax and also i'm paying the right amount and not too much, so hopefully they can help me with that.

Does anyone know how I can get an appointment with Business Link to discuss setting up my photography business and finding out about grants etc if they are available?

 

Try the HMRC website they do free training for tax purposes both employers and self employed people. hmrc.gov.uk

Made me day that ;)

 

Honestly, the shit-sniffers I dealt with , and given some folks' situations at the time and the way they went about their stuff, they did well to get away without being lamped .

 

Was shocking really . Very dismissive of some ideas - sneeringly so in some cases . One little wanker in particular - looked like Roger Thames but smaller - (was an ex-bank manager as he reminded everyone constantly) took the opportunity to earn his 'consultancy fee' for addressing the group for a 2 hour seminar by telling of his problems as he and his wife encountered paying for petrol while driving through France, then their experience of being stuck in the Channel Tunnel, then about the level of customer service he wasn't getting anymore at the Mazda garage where he and his wife took their cars for servicing. This took up best part of an hour and 2 people left . Another lady there handed out some cards for a bank's Business Manager who she found helpful . She was trying to be public spirited and helpful - to total strangers, but who were in the same situation. This smarmy little shithouse then sarcastically put it to her that she was probably getting a 'fixers fee' or somesuch for doing so. Like she was undermining his shitty fucking gathering in some way . Excuse the French but gets me really angry thinking about these lot.

 

I was contacted sometime later invited to give the ubiquitous 'feedback' shite so they could validate their existence/funding.

Needless to say, it was at that juncture that I took the opportunity to give my feedback whilst also offering them some advice of my own .

 

While I'm on - and in an associated vein - another of these 'specialist consultant bodies' not worthy of anything other than contempt and hopefully also now ejected from the gravy train was 'Next Step' . Total waste of time too .
