Looking to raise the profile of your pet business by entering Theo Paphitis’ Small Business Sunday?
It’s a community award where you get the paws up from the multi-millionaire entrepreneur and star of BBC’s Dragon’s Den.
It is amazing for your pet business profile, a brilliant and super easy way to get press coverage, and you become part of Theo’s supportive community too.
Last month, February 2022, was the Small Business Sunday Winner’s Event in Birmingham where Theo celebrated the people who toil away.
And on February 14th 2022, after 12 attempts, I was picked as a SBS winner! So this podcast is all about the impact it has.
