Starting Up – What’s It Like?

Many people (quite rightly) ask me for advice when thinking about starting up in business. Most have a fantastic idea, but that leap of faith can be daunting, and thinking about taking those next steps can put most people off.

So, don’t let your mind play tricks on you and maybe hold you back, because the good news is, it is now easier than ever to start a business especially in terms of cost. With the click of a mouse, you can have access to expert website designers, cloud telephone systems, business cards and networking. We are lucky enough to live in a vibrant and economically successful part of the UK and there is a host of experienced business people  on your doorstep who will be willing to give advice and help  you probably more than you may expect.

Take The Haywards Heath & District Business Association (HHDBA) for example. A fantastic, niche and friendly local networking association that put on some great events. Attended by local business men and women with the aim of helping others grow their business, you never know who you may bump into!

So, what’s it like…exciting, hard work, surprising, rewarding, and more. However, plan carefully, talk to other local business people and as you will no doubt hear very often, the more detailed your business plan is, the better chance your have of success.

All the best,
