From the Author
Thank you for considering "Start and Run Your Own Shop". When I opened my first shop I wished there was a straight-talking, readable book to help me. I learnt by trial and error, from my own mistakes and those of others and now I have used all my experiences to write that book. No techno-jargon, no complicated business school theories, just practical tried and tested methods that can make you and your business more successful.
I have written it for all of us who have ever wanted to do something different with our lives. For those whose only knowledge of the retail business is doing their weekly shop or maybe from a Saturday job whilst at school or college - because that is where I came from. I worked in an office and dreamt of earning more money, having greater control of my life, my future and of having fun. I wanted a better lifestyle. Owning a shop has given me all of these. It is hard work but very rewarding - both emotionally and financially. I hope you enjoy reading "Start and Run Your Own Shop" as well as benefiting from it.
All the best
