Running your own business can be one of life's most rewarding occupations ...
... watching your idea grow from a flash of inspiration or a lifelong passion into a working business with clients, sales & profits.
Many entrepreneurs are great at spotting opportunities, motivating staff, and creating great products and services to satisfy their clients.
BUT - the challenge of starting or developing a successful business needs much, much more than that.
