Starting A Business FAQ's

Yes, anyone can. It’s a common misconception that you need an MBA or some sort of previous business experience. That is not the case.

You only need to be able to read and write and have determination to see it through. We’ll help you develop the other skills you need. With the right training it is now quite easy to set up your own business.

The emergence of Covid-19 has certainly changed the business environment globally. There are industries that are dying and there are many more that are thriving.

All this means is that there are new rules to business. Once you learn them and apply them then there is nothing that you cannot achieve.

To be successful in any business means you must accept change and you must turn your business to suit the new environment. The businesses that do this, not only survive but they generally are the winners and the new big names for the coming decade. So there is nothing standing in your way. If you are not sure about the new business rules, shoot us a line and we’ll be happy to have a chat with you.

No, you don’t. In our Fast Track Programme we will help you discover the perfect business idea for you. Some people come with no ideas, some come with one idea and others have several that they are exploring. Regardless of your circumstances there is a place for you here.

Well no money will be difficult. It is better to have some money to get you going. You will need to invest in yourself, some training, some business tools at the very least. With today’s technology this has been made very easy. You need significantly less money than you would have 10 years ago. We’ve seen some people get going with only £500 to invest. Others have had significantly more.

That is up to you and the effort you put in and the type of business you want to start. We are able to give you all the tools and skills you need to run the business. It is up to you to apply them. We have seen people starting to turn a profit in their first month. We’ve seen others take significantly longer.

Our experience is that this is not likely. Typical average earning we see are 50 – 400k in the first year. We have seen people reach more than a million in their first year, but this is not typical.

There is never a bad time to start a business. Even in a recession there are still many businesses making huge profits. Its very important to evaluate your idea against the current market conditions and make sure that you start a business where there is likely to be demand. We cover this extensively in our Fast Track Programme.

Yes of course you can. Many people at the early stage do this. While it will take you longer to get going due to having less time to invest, you can take your time as you know that your basic expenses will be met.

This is up to you. Our Fast Track Programme is designed to help you set  up your business in 30 days or less.

No you don’t. Learning the skills of sales and marketing will be a core skill for you to learn.  Luckily these are skills that can be taught. We cover them extensively in the Fast Track Programme.

It is an online training programme designed and delivered by us that teaches you how to start your own business in 30 days or less.

The best way is to sign up for our free Masterclass where we will teach you the 3 biggest secrets you need to know to be successful in your business. We’ll also tell you more about the programme.
