Want to run your own company? The small business pocket guide will help you

You’ve always had this dream of working for yourself. You’ve thought about the flexibility to choose your own hours.

The financial rewards.

A chance to properly innovate.

Nobody telling you what to do.

Being your own boss.

You want to be bossing it. Yes… you want to run your own business.

But there’s always been another voice in your head telling you that you’re not good enough. You don’t have the experience or ability to make it a success. That you don’t know enough about accounting and numbers.

We want to help you silence that voice and put you in control.

The Small business pocket guide: Going it alone but never on your own will provide you with practical tools and insight to take you from dreaming about running your own business, to being the boss.

It’s not as hard as you may think

In 2020, we saw a staggering 85,000 new UK-born businesses registered – the highest percentage growth since 2011.

You don’t have to be a business guru – every year thousands of people just like you spot gaps in the market, create plans, and open for business.

Whether becoming your own boss is a dream or born out of necessity, our guide will help you see that it’s nothing to be frightened of, even if beginning your journey seems a bit daunting.

What you get

In the small business pocket guide, you can find advice, insight and tips in areas such as:

  • Turning your dream into a reality
  • How you can run a side hustle alongside your 9-to-5 job
  • Opening for business
  • Taking your business to the next level

Setting up your own business is a challenge, but if you have the drive and knowledge of what you need to do, then anybody is capable.
