Our Business Guides

For many entrepreneurs the Internet is the first port of call to learn, develop ideas and find the contact details of someone who can help. The internet provides a fantastic array of small business resources. There is a goldmine of knowledge and historical facts, if you know how to look. But one of the challenges is sifting through the seemingly never-ending vast archives of 'helpful advice' and information. Much of it is out of date, or written by someone who has never run a business of their own before. It can be tricky to know which websites to trust and which ones to avoid.

When running a small business, the day-to-day tasks seem to consume most people's quality thinking time. The deluge of information means it can sometimes be difficult to see 'the wood from the trees'. So the aim of our guides is to summarise the key issues, concepts, processes, challenges and facts. Wherever possible we have added specific links to the most relevant industry Association (as a credible authority in any particular field). We have attempted to avoid going into too much detail in any particular topic or discipline - so the message is never lost in the detail. Any jargon is explained. Any technical descriptions explained in plain English.
