Sophie West - Start up Business Adviser, Start up with Sophie
I’m Sophie, a start up business adviser based in Letchworth Garden City, North Hertfordshire.
I’ve worked with start up and early stage businesses since 2009, helping them learn the ropes of starting a business and increase their sales. I’m qualified CIMA Cert which means I am in a great position to help learn how to manage your business finances.
Having managed and worked with start up and early stage businesses since 2009, I have a good understanding of what is needed to start a successful business and as a result, the common challenges along the way.
I have worked with a range of individuals and start up businesses from cake bakers, plasterers, fashion designers, event planners, caterers and many more. Most importantly, my experience in working with a wide array of clients means I am excellently positioned to offer my knowledge of different industries to develop your business idea.
I am CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) Cert qualified. Therefore I am able to assist with your financial planning and decision making. This includes book-keeping, corporate governance, pricing strategies, data analysis and forecasting.
Outside of the business world, I still love to push myself into new challenges. For instance, last year I completed my first triathlon which was incredibly enjoyable. I do believe keeping fit and healthy can keep your business on track and your mind focused on your goals.
I have lived all over the country and other parts of the world which has given me a greater understanding of national and global business and also the ability to work with a wide variety of people from different backgrounds.
