Starting a business

Right now we can only guess at why you want to start your own business.

Maybe it’s because you are fed up sitting on the side lines watching someone you know who is running their own business and ‘raking it in’ (… even though you have more talent and ability than them!)

Perhaps you’ve watched one too many episodes of the Dragons Den TV program and you’ve found yourself muttering “I could do better than that” just once too often (and now someone’s called your bluff!)

Or maybe you are one of those people doing a job you don’t like, for someone you don’t respect, for a wage you can’t afford to live on… and you’ve just decided that enough is enough.

Whatever the case, congratulations on your decision to start your own business, this could be the making of you… IF you get it right.

But, you should also proceed with great caution right now because if you get it wrong then the emotional and financial consequences can take many, many years to recover from and sadly some people never manage to bounce back from business failure.

The reality is, statistics show that the majority of new businesses do fail. BUT most of them needn’t have.

Unfortunately many businesses are doomed to failure before they even start because the entrepreneurs behind them were blinded by their own enthusiasm.

You could dramatically improve your chances of success by running your ideas past someone who has been there before. And we have. Dozens of times in fact as we’ve helped people just like you get their businesses off the ground.

We can help you with all of the standard stuff like forming a company, opening a bank account, registering for VAT etc. And that will certainly make your life easier.

But we can be of even greater assistance and even more value to you by acting as a sounding board, showing you how to test your assumptions, helping you to create a realistic plan and giving you the kind of unbiased, objective, independent view point that could keep you out of trouble.

So, if you are thinking about starting a business and want to give yourself the best possible chance of success give us a call on 020 3667 5200 to discuss your plans, earlier rather than later.
