New Year New Start

New Year, New Start,New Business?

January 2012

This is the time of year when many people take the first steps to starting up their own business.  Time off over the Christmas season gives them time to think about their future and what they really want to be doing.  Similarly, for those who are already in business, the festive break may allow time to achieve some distance to see the wood from the trees, to think about new products, services or markets.

There's never been a better time to consider starting up a business.  Particularly in terms of the support, advice and assistance which is available through a multitude of sources from Business Gateway to the Prince's Trust Youth Business Scotland, The Chambers of Commerce, Federation of Small Businness, Smarta, Bloom, Crowdcube and so on.

For many people start up is about finding money, those who have accessed advice or mentoring will always say that this is equally valuable.  The experts in the start up field be they Business Gateway or local professionals and banks will help prevent anyone making silly mistakes or reinventing the wheel. 

So if you want to be your own boss, contact us for advice and mentoring.  If we can't help, we know someone who can.
