Start-up advice

Helping you to achieve your aspirations

Helping you to achieve your aspirations

There’s a little bit of the entrepreneur in all of us; but only a few of us have got the real drive and ambition to turn our aspirations into reality. 2015 saw the number of start-ups in the UK increase by 4.6%, the highest number of incorporations on record. So why start a business? Of course it gives you the opportunity to ‘sack’ the boss but in its place you have to implement your own plans and live by your own decisions.

The one good thing is, if you’ve done your research properly and you’ve found a niche in the market, you can choose the business that you want to be in, or, even better turn your hobby into an enterprise.

If this resonates with you, try asking yourself a few timely questions:

  • How do I go about setting up the company?
  • How do I go about checking if my ideal company name is available?
  • What about funding – can I apply for a loan?
  • Is what I’m planning on doing a scalable business?
  • Will I need staff?
  • If so, what sort of staff?
  • Where would I find them?
  • Have I got enough cash in my business to support my growth?
