Getting ready for all the e-Biz
It’s an exciting time for Chesworth Press Agency as we are working on the launch of a countywide business news service.
It’s a time of meetings and sorting out experts in all areas of business to be writers for the daily business news website and weekly e-magazine.
In less than four weeks we will be live.
One of the important things in business today is making sure no one can use your identity in social networking, so before we even told anyone about eBusinessCumbria we had to buy the domain name, set up the Facebook page and Twitter accounts.
So now you can follow the build up to the launch by following us at twitter.com/eBizCumbria or on our Facebook page BusinessCumbria.
After training to be a journalist with the Guardian Manchester Evening News Group in the 1980s I worked in Manchester and London. After the Sunday newspaper I worked on made me and my new husband redundant we moved out of the city, north to rural Cumbria.
Our daughter was born in Cumbria and we have two dogs, two cats and two businesses - Chesworth Press Agency and Big Story Media Training Ltd.
