BEPRO hosts session on challenges of being your own boss

To help entrepreneurs navigate through the challenges of being their own boss, Bermuda’s Emerging Professionals (BEPRO) is offering a seminar this week featuring some of the Island’s most experienced small-business experts.

Thursday’s event, entitled “Jump Start Your Business: Tips from the Pros”, at BEPRO’s next lunch-and-learn session will feature Kerry Judd of New Beginnings Inc, Kumi Bradshaw of Firm Advisory Ltd, Alexandra Mosher of Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery, and small business adviser Jamillah Lodge from the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation.

The session will focus on how to get a business off the ground, what to expect in being your own boss and the various steps to be aware of before starting on the entrepreneurial path.

Kerry Judd, Owner of New Beginnings Inc, has over 12 years of experience within the provisions of marketing, communication and organisational strategy; both locally and internationally. Originally launched in January 2010 out of a desire for personal fulfillment and engagement in projects that truly make a positive impact on peoples’ lives, New Beginnings Inc. is now a successful Bermudian business. The foundation of the business is in distinguishing the core values of the clients’ organisation and further translating those values into actual employee and customer/client experiences.

Kumi Bradshaw CBA, BVAL, President of Firm Advisory Ltd, serves on the Accreditation Board of the Institute of Business Appraisers as well as the Editorial Board of Business Appraisal Practice. His company, Firm Advisory Ltd, is a provider of business valuation, business brokerage and advisory services. In the summer of 2010, the first edition of Mr Bradshaw’s book, “Show Me the Money! Understanding the Value of Your Business”, was published.
