Start Up Donut is the UK’s leading online source of free news, know-how and offers for people who are starting their own business. Following the hugely popular launch series comes this second eight-part series of Start Your Own Business. With each episode dedicated to a specific topic, some of the UK leading small-business experts give you their top tips on meeting a variety of essential start-up challenges, including attracting customers online and offline, selling face to face, what business expenses sole traders can claim, recruiting and managing staff for the first time and how to manage stress. You can also learn how to sell via your own website to customers in the UK and overseas and make sure your new business is sustainable and carbon neutral from the best experts of all – those who actually own small businesses. If you’re starting your own business or seriously considering it, the second series of Start Your Own Business is just as unmissable as the first. It’s brought to you thanks to sponsorship from the Federation of Small Businesses – the UK’s leading membership organisation for start-ups and small businesses.
