If you want to find out how to start your own business and get off to a great start, you’ve come to the right place.
In six episodes of this first eight-part series, a leading expert provides tips on a specific aspect of starting your own business. Many of the basic essentials are covered, including whether to set up as a sole trader, limited company or partnership and how to register.
You can find out about sources of start-up funding and how to keep your cash flow healthy. One episode will tell you how to create a winning brand and come up with a good business. Another provides a basic introduction to marketing. We also explain how to sell online and look after your mental and physical health when running your own business.
Two further episodes enable you learn invaluable start-up lessons from actual business owners – those who’ve been there and done it.
If you’re starting your own business or thinking about it, the Start Your Own Business podcast is unmissable. It could save you lots of time, money and effort.
