You will also be posted a factsheet dealing with your particular business idea (Catering, Contract), plus you will also gain access to all the information within the Be Your Own Boss section of the site.

The first thing to do is your research - find out if there is a need for your business; find out who your potential customers are; find out who your local competitors are; etc.
