Emma Jones started her first business at the age of 27 from her spare room in Manchester and successfully sold it 2 years later to Tenon Group plc.
This experience provided the inspiration for Emma's next venture which launched in January 2006. Enterprise Nation - www.enterprisenation.com - has become the most popular resource in the UK for anyone starting and growing a business from home, attracting over 100,000 unique visitors each month.
In 2009, Emma was responsible for the UK's first ever Home Enterprise Day, held during Global Entrepreneurship Week; a chance to celebrate the millions of people who have turned a talent/hobby/skill into a way of making a living, and part of their home into a business HQ.
Emma is the author of 'Spare Room Start Up - how to start a business from home' and 'Working 5 to 9 - how to start a successful business in your spare time'
