How to start a business: Become your own boss

Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? Of setting up your own clothes company, cafe or consultancy firm? Of saying 'screw you' to that annoying boss? Loads of us do.

Setting up your own business is really exciting, but it can also be a bit scary. Especially because many of us have no idea about how to start a business, let alone how to make it a success!
