Self-employed parents up and down the country are breathing a collective sigh of relief as the kids return to school and they can finally focus on their business again. For others, September marks the first time their babies are off to big school, while those at the opposite end of the spectrum are facing an empty nest for the first time.
Whichever you may be, September is the new January when it comes to fresh starts and the opportunity to try something new. Now if you still have kids at home, flexibility is paramount, which is what makes working for yourself so appealing. Flexibility and doing something you're passionate about is just as important for people who've either been stay at home parents for years or who have been on a stressful career path and now want to live life on their terms.
Even those already in business can feel the need to change things that have gone stale or just aren't quite what they want their business to be.
But how to do it?
It can seem overwhelming if you've never worked for yourself to know where to start or what to do first. And it can be easy to get carried away with the excitement of it all that you don't stop and check whether it will work.
So I have created an easy to follow FREE e-book that outlines 15 steps you can follow that will help you set up your very own business without spending more than about £100 (and even that is variable depending on the type of web hosting and domain name you go for!)
I have included all the tools and super low cost or free ways you can get your idea out of your head and into a start up.
Here's what it covers:
I won't pretend that this mini guide covers all you need to know about starting up or pivoting a business. But it will give you some quick and easy pointers to get you started without you spending heaps of cash. They are all tools and services that I have used in starting up and running my business. None of the links in the guide are affiliate links. They are simply useful things that may help you.
If you want the guide, click here to get it. If you want extra advice or support, head over to The Campfire Club on Facebook where you will find plenty of likeminded small business owners who aren't going to claim that they've made 6-figures over night. They are simply trying to follow their dreams and do something they love. So why not take the #30daystostartup challenge and see if you can have a business live in just 30 days.
