According to a recent YouGov survey, around a third of all UK adults would like to start their own business or are doing so. And over two million men and women are already enjoying the freedom, flexibility and low cost of running a business from home. If you want to join this happy group, Start Your Own Home-Based Business will guide you every step of the way. It is written in clear, jargon-free style by professional writer and consultant Nick Daws, who has been a home-based businessman himself for over twenty years. Start Your Own Home-Based Business takes you through every aspect of running a home business - from assessing your suitability to choosing the right business, raising finance to marketing and credit control. For added inspiration, the book also includes over fifty home-based business profiles. If you have ever dreamed of running a business from home, this book can be your passport to achieving that goal.
I am a professional freelance writer, editor and writing teacher living in the county of Staffordshire (UK).
I write mainly non-fiction, on subjects including personal finance, small business matters, PR and marketing, self-employment, personal development, creative writing, grammar and punctuation, and so on.
As well as books, I also write training courses, including the CD-based "Write Any Book in Under 28 Days", published by The WCCL Network. In addition, I write web page content, newsletters, articles, advertising materials, novelty products, and more.
Although non-fiction pays the bills, I also enjoy reading and writing fiction (especially science fiction/fantasy) when time permits.
I live in Burntwood, near Lichfield, with my partner, Jayne, who is a lecturer at a local college, and a variable number of cats.
