The scariest words to a prospective or existing small business owner are ‘I’m from the government (or bank) and I’m here to help you’. If the schemes and websites of free support for starting a business are primarily run and sponsored by government and financial services companies then B-E-W-A-R-E. My opinion is that they are…

Feisty Enterprise Tip #1: Suck It and See – Find Out If This Is Your Right Time

If you have other ways of earning a living and you feel that you haven’t enough know-how, or enough available time and money, to get through the first eighteen months of your own business – don’t do it. In my opinion there is no better way to earn a living than being your own boss…

‘Essence of Entrepreneurship Juice’ – anyone?

It’s Global Entrepreneurship Week and I’ve been busy speaking in all the major cities and on television. Not that I’m an Entrepreneur, hardly anyone that speaks on entrepreneurship is.
