Summer Holiday Dreaming

25th July 2016

Dreaming of Starting your own Business?
The summer holidays are here, which means for most people you will have the traditional summer break, and then face the prospect of returning to work. This is when thoughts may wander to starting your own business – working for yourself rather than for someone else.

For many this is a daunting thought, you have an idea but how can you move this forward into an income stream? How would you register a business? What would it cost? Could you initially carry on working and start the business in your spare time? Then comes the nightmare of paperwork, keeping records, computerised systems, shoe boxes full of receipts, taxes. Starting in business is beginning to seem like a bad idea. Maybe next year!

Starting your own business is really not that complicated. With the right help and advice from day one you could start the business you have dreamed of, rather than putting it off again until another day.

So if you are on your summer break this year and thoughts turn to the business you never started, then why not arrange a free initial consultation with one of our start-up specialists? We can ‘road test’ your ideas and clear up some of the uncertainties you have, which could perhaps be enough to give you the confidence to make the leap.
