Dionne Ried was referred by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Growth Hub to the Enterprise for Success programme for support in starting her business Manabika Wellbeing in 2017 which works with a variety of clients on their wellbeing.
Starting a new business had many challenges for Dionne to overcome, from writing a business plan, developing networking opportunities and the confidence to go forward with her business idea.
With tailored support from the Enterprise for Success programme, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Dionne was assigned her own personal mentor and given a range of support to grow her business; including writing a business plan, attending relevant courses and managing cash flow.
“It’s actually a business rather than a dream”. Dionne Reid, owner of Manabika Wellbeing
