Hi guys,

You have asked some basic questions which I feel could be answered by 1 organisation.

If I were you I would contact your local Princes Trust.
If you are aged 16-30 they can help with business grants and loans and will offer you advice on all the things you want answering through a mentor/business advisor.

their website is:

Hope that helps

I know you have asked some general stuff but they are very valid. Some ideas based on my own experience:

yes uniforms are a great idea - they allow customers and clients to connect to the business. They do create a good impression most certainly.

A boss is always advisable - even to just give the final say on a will we or wont we idea that seems bit of a risk.

The Princes Trust is a good place to start as regards the old finance and some banks especially the HSBC have sound business packages for small newly formed businesses.

All the best with your ventue and I hope you are millionaires in a few years so you can retire at 35 and never again get out of bed before 11.30!!!!

Good luck
