Everyone has to work from somewhere - and we'll examine the advantages and disadvantages of the various options that will be open to you. Many previous students have found this section surprising - as they hadn't thought there was much to consider.

You will probably have endless enthusiasm for your new venture, and specific skills that you hope to trade with. However, it is unlikely that you will have all the skills required to run a business. (How is your bookkeeping?) We'll examine what outside assistance you might need. You'll also find out how to keep the costs down.

Many self-employed people don't even consider Insurance. You will find out what insurance is compulsory, and what is optional. You will then be able to decide what insurance you will need.
