Start-Up Business Programme


Startup Course with Startup Donut


Starting a business? Already started and need some help, but can’t afford to pay an expert for 1-2-1 help? Then this Course has been designed especially for you!

Nikki has helped thousands of start-up business owners over the last decade, so she knows a thing or two about what challenges new businesses face, and she brings that experience into this Course!

You will study the pre-recorded business course at your own pace, and every month you can join our LIVE monthly Start-up Programme Classes with Nikki, where you can ask specific questions and ask for extra help!
