With more redundancies and pay freezes on the way, there's never been a better time to start a business, according to Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation and author of the Start Up Book.
?We are seeing people take redundancy and use this as the motivation to go self-employed," she says. "Other people are keeping hold of the day job and building a business at night and weekends. This will be a good year for enterprise in the UK as many more people decide to take control of their working life and turn a passion, hobby or skill into a way of making a living. Whether you're planning to do that full time or in your spare time, this Kit will show you how.?
