The new business start up workbook

Our “Mind your own business” business start up workbook can be used by individuals but is best used by a small group working together. It is available as a free download. Just fill in the form below and we will email the download link. We will also use this data to send occasional emails on any further updates and resources. Note: you can unsubscribe from this any time and we will not pass your data to anyone else.

Part 1 of the workbook includes inspiration stories and looks at personal qualities needed; Part 2 is the core start up programme including what business to start, market research, marketing, planning, costs, cash flow, profits, structure, name and funding sources; and Part 3 gives further vital information on running a business including online presence, sales development, promotion, reporting, compliance, information security, growth strategy, exporting and how to sell the business.
