It’s summertime apparently - not that the weather in the UK is anything to go by. However, the schools have finally finished for the holidays and parents are frantically getting away for a much needed break. Regardless of where you are, we hope you are enjoying this time of year.
It’s certainly a worrying time at the moment for entrepreneurs in Britain, as the country takes steps to leave the EU. The current economic situation will affect some business owners more than others but perhaps the best thing for entrepreneurs is just to plough on regardless, as with change often comes new opportunity. We’d love to hear from our members of their views on this subject.
Feel free to start topics in the ‘Groups’ section of the website.
The last quarter of this year has gone so fast and it’s great to see new members on opusmatrix.com. We would especially like to announce the winner of the latest competition and Ouafa Benterki, it’s you! There’s a £100 Amazon voucher coming your way. Thanks for connecting with others in our community and referring friends to the site.
We actively encourage skillsharing in our community and the skillfinder service (page only visible when you are logged in) enables members to search for people based on a certain combination of skills and also by location. This has proved very popular and many of our members have said they are willing to barter their skills.
We understand that some people are a little cautious having just met someone online who wants their service for free in exchange for the work they will do for them. Therefore, we’ve introduced the ‘Secure Handshake’. This involves both parties placing a deposit with Opus Matrix until the jobs are complete. Once both parties are satisfied with the result, each person gets their money back (please note that a 10% admin fee applies). If you have been in touch with someone who wants to barter with you and skillshare, please email the details to [email protected].
We also have further exciting announcements for skillsharing on this site. Coming soon!
