How to start a small business

Thinking about starting a small business and not sure where to start?


Come along to this informative Small Business Start Up workshop. And lets get the ball rolling.

Lets put this together into an easy to follow road map. This is what is commonly called a business plan which you can make as simple or complicated as you want. Personally I prefer simple because the business plan constantly changes.

The reported figure for failure rate varies but is considered to be 60% within 3 years of starting. Then why not plan to be in the 40% that survive within 3 years. Now having started your small business how are you going to grow it?
This is a practical workshop where you will learn lots of concepts and how to put them together.
