Resources / 1


In my previous live session on instagram (@samansohail15), I mentioned sharing a few of the resources I spoke about which might be useful for you to plan and assess your business ideas. I wanted to share some easy to understand, simple to use templates for you to sketch out some initial ideas.

Free Business Plan Template from by Rosanna Design

Business Model Canvas from Strategyzer

Mission Statement Generator by Franklin Covey

Small Business Checklist by Molly Marie


This is obviously not a definitive list but its a great starting point for anyone who is an aspiring entrepreneur. I will be doing some future posts detailing some of these in depth.

For my next live session, you can join me on Monday 11th June 2018 (timings to follow) on my instagram page. I will be discussing "Planning a creative business" as my next topic.


Going live.


I've been sharing info on Instagram about my live sessions and wanted to give a little context to new/confused/interested followers.


As soon as I got out of postgrad, I dived (excitedly, but maybe not wholeheartedly at the time) into teaching and design education. Little did I know that it was that four year gig that would change my whole outlook on sharing information, exchange of ideas and harnessing creativity. If you know me from my time at UOD, you know how passionate I am about teaching (sometimes very unconventionally!) And definitely learning.


I have since moved on to establish eightsevenstudio, a multidisciplinary practice which I created as an umbrella to not only pay the bills (read: go on holidays!) but also experiment with ideas like Warq Paper Products. Over the years I have met and worked with a good number of entrepreneurs and passionate startups ranging from artists, designers, chefs, fashionistas, bloggers and event planners etc. Each of them were an opportunity for me to learn.


As I do a couple of different live sessions, I will be talking about startups and entrepreneurship (as well as touching on branding and design). This is not a class or a lecture but a discussion where I will be able to share some information and you can pitch in or ask questions (lots have been coming in, feel free to send yours!)


Exciting times, see you on Instagram!
