Be Your Own Boss; Inspiring Self-Employment

28th February 2019

One of the major initiatives of Positive People has been our Be Your Own Boss self-employment course. In areas of Devon where both skilled and unskilled work is in short supply, small businesses and sole traders make up for much of the local economy, so the gig economy and self-employment makes up for a huge amount of the sector.
