Hi Dave

The best place to start any business is with thorough market research. What is your product or service? How will you market this product? What will people be prepared to pay? Who are your competitors? All of these issues are identified within the 'Be our own boss' section of the www.shell-livewire.org website. Speak to as many different people about your idea and draw upon the advice you feel is relevant to you. If you register your detail under the your account section of the www.shell-livewire.org site you will also be given details of a LiveWIRE adviser who can assist you with your plan.
