Default Re: 18-30 starting up a business?

If anyone wants advice on setting up a new business or going self employed, I'd be happy to offer any guidance, having been self employed for nearly eight years and having run a business that I closed in 2008, and am now in the process of opening a new business, I hope I have lots to offer people.

The easy part is having an idea, the hardest is putting that idea into action. Get some experience in a small company, learn how the business works and then take the plunge. But always have a plan B.

I agree, always have a plan B, and never be unplanned or unprepared, good business planning and knowing your market will help any business get off to a good start.

I think its so great when young people start up their own businesses. Sometimes it seems that when you go for these things when you're in your 20s there is less fear of failure.. always a useful thing to have when going out on your own!
Obviously planning is essential, but you also need that drive and ability to try again when things don't go to plan.

I started my business at 27 and I can honestly say it was the best thing I ever did, its not just the freedom or sense of achievement but the fact that you can stand on your own 2 feet and make a real difference to those clients you deal with. Its also made my future far more prosperous than it could ever have been in employment.

Well done Ribeye for taking control of your financial future and good luck! I also started a business, it's a digitial marketing agency. Started it when I was 22, I'm 24 now and the agency grows itself. Don't even have to go in to work any more and it earns a residual income for me!

Thanks for sharing and I might just look into this a little more. I have started one business already, would they be able to help me do you think?
