Everybody should network – it is now the essential business survival tool.

Raw Business offers Entrepreneurs online networking facility

25 08 2010

Following the announcement by Coalition Government Minister Mark Prisk that the funding for Business Link is to be halted, Raw Business, a private sector online business networking and publishing company, has made the decision to open its network to the whole of the UK business community free of charge.

Raw Business was founded in 2007 and aims to provide business owners and entrepreneurs with the tools, support and guidance they need to make their business a success. The online network aims to bring entrepreneurs and business owners together, enabling them to forge strong, lasting business relationships and is based on the most popular Social Networking models.

Historically, the network has had free and subscription based membership options but following the announcement by Mr Prisk, Raw Business MD Bradley Chapman has made the decision to open up the network. Bradley told us “Business owners and entrepreneurs can sometimes feel very isolated and not everyone is good at everything. A support mechanism where the experiences of other business owners can be shared, despite any rivalry, can really help to make the business community and the UK as whole, a better place.”

These sentiments were echoed by Government Minister Simon Burns who, in a statement to Raw Business said “The services offered and the opportunities presented through companies like Raw Business can potentially be a vital lifeline for business and entrepreneurs alike.

With austerity measures being introduced in public sector funded projects such as Business Link, it is good to see that the private sector is ready and willing to come together in these tough times. “

As well as the online network, Raw Business also publishes a monthly business magazine title raw Business Magazine written by business owners, for business owners but also including interviews with some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs. The magazine is now in its twelfth edition, has a print run of 15,000 and has both printed and digital versions.

Raw Entrepreneur Magazine Goes to Print!

16 04 2009

Hi everybody

It has seemed like a lifetime to us moving from our previous digital Raw Magazine Editions into a fully printed glossy A4 printed version for edition 6.. Well myself and Scott are both pleased, humbled and honoured at the same time to deliver our best edition yet featuring an exclusive interview with the UK’s highest profile PR agent Mr Max Clifford!

Read Raw Mag 6 Here

I have worked with Scott for over 6 years and during that time our relationship has moved both forward and backwards at the same time. It takes a very long time to build a working relationship with a business partner and it takes and even longer time to be able to respect and understand each others strengths and weaknesses. If you can work together as a team and share a common vision or goal then of course anything might be possible. We have worked on our differences and we seem to be moving into a new respect zone.

We had some launch shots taken last week to celebrate the Raw Entrepreneur Magazine edition 6 in print and at first they started really seriously and before we knew it we started to feel almost as if we were famous for a minute!

This is the first image that we took and as you can see we looked like a pair of serious plonkers.

What a pair of plonkers!

What a pair of plonkers!

This is the second Image and as you can tell we have warmed up a little and starting to feel more comfortable in front of the camera.

feeling more comfotable with the camera

feeling more comfortable with the camera

This is about the sixth shot that we took and we are starting to get in the mood feeling like we might just make it as Entrepreneurs…

Oh yes now we are kicking back and playing for the camera

Oh yes now we are kicking back and playing for the camera

Oh yes lets get our teeth stuck into this whole photo shoot. feel it see it taste it!

Bradley Chapman and Scott English show their teeth

OK then it think its time to really let rip… “Shall we pull our pants down together Scott” – “But Brad i am not wearing any”, “OK then Scott looks like it just me, but if i pull my pants down everyone will who i really am!” , Brad don’t worry this is Raw Entrepreneur Magazine – A magazine for Entrepreneurs who can be honest with who they really are”, “OK then Scott but our whole world will change if i do it…… Here go”.

Damm Damm  i really did not want everyone to know who i really am!

The Power of Being a Positive Entrepreneur – by Bradley Chapman

1 04 2009

It really touches me and even on the darkest of days like today when our revenue is less than 50% of what we need to cover our costs and a day when I have delivered an amazing heartfelt and visionary speech to my team and yes i guess that it may have empowered the courageous among them.

It’s 4.45 and i am nearly passing out from exhaustion and lack of sleep through worry and not being able to do, create and deliver everything that Mi is demanding and needing right now..

I can sit back and eat my cottage pie with the comfort that I am not alone and that we all share the highs and lows of being in business… There are days that I love calling myself an Entrepreneur and days that i shake in fear for what i have had to do, some good and some bad.

I just spoke to a lady called Sue who is a life coach and she told me how she had come back from a near death experience.. Sue no speaks to Entrepreneurs and encourages them.

Its people like like this that puts us all to shame with our simple whims like “Where is everybody”

Lots of Bradley

PS- I wish i could carry all of you but i cant. You all have wings. please join me and fly with me and together we will achieve something that no other network has been able to.

EYE OPENERS

Business SOS – This part of the web site is wide open for any of the areas listed and featured to be taken over by members of MI – do you have any ideas. This is a really good opportunity for Mi Members.

Angels Den – we are looking to pair with a VC company that will provide VC funding and advice for our members?

Business PR – we need a PR agency to take over and sponsor this area of the site and help our members with PR and Marketing?

Mi News – we need a professional press release business to sponsor and run this aspect of our site so that our members can issue free and paid for press releases. Our members need advice and guidance on writing, proof reading and promoting a press release – any ideas/ contacts?

This is just for starters. If you realise that we will have around 40,000 members by then end of Dec 2009, then think about this! Do any of you really want to waste negative energy on the things that you don’t have,instead use that energy positively and get the things you want? Ummm….. Thought provoking.

For all that are fighting to build the forum, I thank you and i will never forget – Thanks for being there

Inspiring Entrepreneurs at the British Library

23 01 2009

Inspiring Entrepreneurs at the British Library Wednesday 21st January 2009 “Business in Crisis”.

When Rachel invited me to form part of the panel, I of course accepted. Me, miss an opportunity to talk in front of 250 aspiring and budding Entrepreneurs “No Way”. I mean that like offering candy to a child!

I arrived at the Library early after a previous engagement at the Royal Courts of Justice (where a bird dropped the biggest poop on my head, shirt and tie that you have ever seen) and entered the auditorium to take a peak at the venue. WOW what a fantastic venue. The 250 seat auditorium by 6.20pm would be filled 250 aspiring and budding entrepreneurs listening to the panel speak. The speaker platform was awesome and in my own little way i felt how Mr President Obama must have felt during his inauguration speech – Very Proud and Honoured that Million Impossible supports aspiring and budding Entrepreneurs.

The panel consisted of:-

Rachel Elnaugh:- one of the original Dragons’ Den team, whose own business, Red Letter Days, collapsed into administration in 2005. Rachel has since distilled these traumatic experiences into a book, Business Nightmares.

Bradley Chapman: Bradley Chapman is the founder of the online business networking and business support web site Million Impossible, and the digital magazine Raw Entrepreneur.

Gavin Griffiths:- Gavin Griffiths endured his business nightmare when he purchased the magazine The Erotic Review for £1.

Aamir Ahmad: Aamir Ahmad launched dwell in November 2003 as a multi-channel company (mail order catalogue, online presence and a small store in South London). Over the past 5 years dwell has grown into a strong multi channel retailer with a significant online presence and seven stores spread throughout the UK with a combined turnover of over £25m.

The event was one of a series of events titled “Inspiring Entrepreneurs” and i must say that i enjoyed every minute of it. My presentation was titled “Never let anybody tell you that you cannot do something” and it was well received by the audience.

The Entrepreneur Panel

The Entrepreneur Panel

Speaking in front of people can be daunting for most people, but when you are speaking about something that you feel passionate about and its personal to you – well of course it just flows. Having to squeeze all that i had to say within 10 minutes on the stage needed some control on my part but combine that with the post event networking party was abfab.

I was amazed at the level of positivity in the audience and I am thankful for the kind responses that i have received since the event. I hope that The Mi team and myself can get more involved in supporting the British Library in the very near future.

With Thanks to The British Library and specifically the business and IP centre and of course their sponsors HSBC. On the day thanks to Shabana Mahmud, Isabelle Oswell, Matthew Rock and of course my dear friend Rachel Elnaugh for once again making it all possible!

Best Wishes
