Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work for yourself? Since the recent recession figures show that more and more people, both young and old, would rather set up their own business than continue searching for jobs that are scarce, and often end up being poorly-paid. In Be Your Own Boss, dozens of ordinary people who have taken the plunge and launched their own successful businesses, share their know-how on how to get started and on the common mistakes to avoid. Whether it's baking cakes to make a bit of spare cash, leaving school at 16 to launch a magazine, turning redundancy into an opportunity or attracting money from the stars of TV's Dragons' Den, their stories will inspire. Business experts also share their top tips on where to go for money and advice to take your ideas from the bedroom to the boardroom. This book has all you need to start on the journey to be your own boss.
