Member Laura Pride wanted more control and creative freedom in her work.
So while on maternity leave, she tested the waters with ad hoc projects, and in 2012 her business OMGrenegade, which specialises in creating videos, podcasts and live online broadcasts, was born.
After three years in business, Laura joined FSB to get help in unfamiliar areas of business: “If you run a smaller business you can be responsible for a lot: people, health and safety, red tape. FSB gives me confidence knowing that I can pick up the phone and get some independent advice, really quickly, on a range of issues.”
Laura, like other members who made over 131,000 calls to the legal advice line in 2016, has used her membership to ensure she stays on the right side of the law. “FSB is a key part of my support network, with networking opportunities as well as legal advice and insurance,” she adds.
