Want to start a business? What will you need?

If you want to start a business you need to invest time and resources. What you will need depends on what you aim to do, so have a look at your resources now so you can plan ahead.

If you want to work from home, you will need a space to work in. Although the kitchen table may seem like a good place to start, you won’t get far if you have to clear away your work every time someone needs to eat, the kids want to paint or do home work, or you have visitors over. Try to have a small table or desk, or cupboard or corner, depending on what you want to do, that is just for your work. If you have a study or office, even better. Make sure that there is a place you can leave your work safely. It is inevitable that you will get interrupted. Businesses with stock need storage space, whether you are running your own business or selling items for another company as a rep.
