Many people who have worked for larger corporations revel in the idea of starting a small business. A place where you can work your own hours, and never have to answer to anyone else.

But what does is take to start your own business? Well hopefully I can give you some tips here, as I have now been successfully running my own for over six years.

When I decided to start my business, one thing was very clear, I needed a sound concept on how I wanted my business to appear and build.

Many business owners who have found success, will tell you the first thing to do, is to have a business plan.

Having one will allow you the scope on where you want your business to climb to and how you will go about making this happen.

When I first started, the concept of marketing and getting my business 'known' was vital for me. I would treat this exactly like a job, and often sit for seven to eight hours a day, surfing the internet and attaching my business to any website that would allow me to.

I also contacted anyone whom I thought would need my services or be able to pass the word on about me.

One big lesson I learnt, was to never burn your bridges, I always had a great relationship with the people I had been employed by. This allowed me to then contact them at a later stage, and they still gave people who would ask about me and my work ethic a glowing response.

Also tell your friends about your business, it is amazing how strong the power of the 'word of mouth' can be. Many of my first jobs were brought to me by the recommendation of a friend.

There are many other factors which I will be covering in upcoming stories, so stay tuned to see how you can make your own business grow or even start your own and gain the freedom of being your own boss.
