feeling under valued and over worked? start a business From  Home and break free from the 9-5 !

According to a recent report by Micro Biz Mag 65% of adults in the UK want to start their own businesses. Driven by a lack of purpose in the workplace, poor working conditions, long hours and an often-costly commute, more and more people are making the decision to follow their passions and start their own business. In 2019 alone 672,890 new companies were incorporated (source), which equates to more than one company formation per minute.

Encouraging don’t you think?


The secret to getting ahead is getting started.

Have you had enough of your humdrum, dead-end job? Are you at a stage in your career where you’re not really quite sure where you’re heading? Perhaps you’re working in a job with no future prospects? It could be a job you now absolutely dread doing and for a boss who knowingly takes you for granted.

So when you finally reach a stage in your life when you realise you are no longer happy at work and all your time is being eaten up doing something you no longer enjoy, what do you do? You could of course just change your job and continue to exchange your time for money, or you could take control of your future and start your own business!

Being your own boss has many advantages...

Working for yourself means you’re the boss. You don’t have to answer to anyone, which means every decision you make about your financial future is yours and yours alone. That includes how much you pay yourself, what hours you “work” and how much time you take off.

You may already have a great idea and have thought about starting a business at home in the past but perhaps just haven’t acted on it yet? Maybe the idea of working for yourself has crossed your mind many times before but you’re not quite sure about what type of business to start?

You’re not alone!

When thinking about starting a new business there are lots of things you’ll have to consider. The most obvious being the type of product or service you want to provide and whether or not there is sufficient demand for whatever it is that you, or intend to do. 

Thankfully, in today’s modern society, you can find the answers to these, and other questions, with relative ease and then start a business with very little money, run everything in the cloud and work from anywhere in the world.

The chances are you will you need to employ a few remote workers, understand the financial investment, how you intend to market, sell, fulfil, etc. so whilst at first starting a business can seem overwhelming, the truth is, it really isn’t that difficult – or else why would so many other people (from all walks of life) be doing it already?

Right now, all over the UK, millions of people are running successful businesses.

Starting your own business is fast becoming a realistic option for many professional people (young and old) and for a whole range of different reasons, and whilst it’s true that many businesses will fail in their first 1-3 years of trading, it's also true that many do not.

In my opinion businesses tend to fail not through of lack of funds, time or resources but simply because of the people running them have the wrong mindset, which by default means, business do NOT fail because of the lack of finance, the lack of planning, the lack of enthusiasm or indeed the lack of commitment.

“If you think you can or you think you can’t you’re probably right” – Henry Ford

Think about it, what do you really want and are you really prepared to do whatever it takes to get it?

It's true every new business needs a website, payment processing, product shipping facilities, service agreements and other databases for products, customers and sales tracking purposes. 

With so many options, where do you start?

You’ll need and want to get to grips with
modern marketing methods and strategies, lead generation techniques, social media leverage and in some cases affiliate programs. So what’s the best approach for your business idea and which method of marketing is likely to generate the most leads and the most sales?

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers...

"I'm so thankful to Neil for helping me realise my dream"

Starting my own beauty business had always been a dream but never a reality. Since taking the training I quickly learned that I was capable of doing so much more. Now, I outsource everything I don't like doing to a handful of other people, which in turn allows me to focus on what I do best; beauty treatments!
