Sometimes having your own business is a lonely game. In January, feeling this personally, I set up The Soul Traders Club aimed at female entrepreneurs who want to build lives and businesses that work for them. When you are clear on your vision for your life, you can then start to take action to move you towards that.
Feedback from the Founder Members has been very positive, and in response to this, I’ve built an 8-week group coaching course that will start on Monday 20th September with coaching sessions over Zoom every Monday 9.30-10.30am. The course content will include exploring your values, your unique strengths, your vision for your life, mindset, building positive habits, confidence and money mindset. Building a successful business requires the belief you can do it and the tenacity to work towards that.
People Know How and Polwarth Church are delighted to invite you to the launch of the All Aboard canal boat at 2-4pm on 25 September! The launch event invites you on board the new boat and offers many opportunities to get involved – from volunteering as a crew member or helmsman, to providing support through art, music, culture, meditation or any other ideas you might have!
People Know How has been selected as a finalist in the Scottish Charity Awards and are now collecting votes for the People’s Choice Award. The charity are finalists in the Digital Citizens category, in recognition of the work they’ve done over the last year to provide devices, digital skills and connectivity to thousands of people across Edinburgh and East Lothian during the pandemic. While a judging panel will determine the winners under the nine distinct categories, members of the public can have their say by voting for their favourite overall entry in the People’s Choice Award!

DESK SPACE AVAILABLE in 2 window space at Edinburgh Palette Ground floor.
Friendly bright space sharing with a designer/maker, situated on the Ground Floor. Furnished with desk, comfy chair, shelves, broadband, and window facing.
All desk-based creative or admin welcome, though best suited to those who can cope with a little background noise or who prefers working evenings. I go from sewing costumes to writing applications and running online workshops. Looking for someone respectful with similar eco values to share my studio. No smelly work please (oil painting, etc)
£80/ month including bills. Wifi at extra cost.
Available about mid August – flexible date.
Please contact me for more information and viewing and share with your colleagues.
I am looking to share my studio from now until the end of the year. It is a three window studio, lots of natural light and uncluttered.
I am a musician and mainly use the studio for teaching and practising. Sharing with another musician, or similarly small scale music making would work well, but I’d be happy to talk to other artists who need a space to work in for a time too. I am interested in drawing, photography and video work as well, so get in touch if you are interested to have a look at the space.
Rent would be £115 a month, including all of the perks of being in the Palette – please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
