Ive done my research, I have a business idea - now where do I go from here?

There is nothing like it around here -- its a retail business idea with an eco twist

Have you contacted Business Link? They have helped my dad with info, he has also been a a few free business courses that have helped his understanding with accounts etc. Good Luck

Business link are being cut in nOvember so if you want one if their 3 day courses you need to book it now it's £100
Fab course, I have a great idea for a business but once I did my figures and worked out my profit would be less than minimum wage I've changed my business plan.
Good luck!

Business Link seem to have a good reputation - but as others have said this service is being chopped, so check them out soon. They have a business plan on their website. There are people at HMRC who give free advice on tax and so on - again, some of these services are being closed down.

Good luck!

This was written for ebayers but the vast bulk of it is generally applicable ....
and this is a useful board
