New Career Move?

Here at Local Traders Publications, we’ve seen a rise in the number of new start ups with people being made redundant and/or re-evaluating their current situation, due to COVID-19.

Have you thought about working for yourself, and taking that leap of faith?

From everything to leaflet design, and distribution for your new business, to website advice and the best place to advertise, we’ve got you covered. After all, we are a local, friendly business, and we would love to help.

Unexpected events or shocks disrupt our habitual routines, jolt us out of our comfort zones, and lead us to ask big questions about what matters and what is worth doing. It’s no wonder, then, that during the current COVID-19 pandemic, many people are doing a u-turn with their careers.

Today, more than ever, the path to your next career will be circuitous. To cover all of the ground you’ll need to cover, it’s vital to let yourself imagine a divergent set of possible selves and futures. Embrace that process and explore as many of them as you can.
