Certificate in Starting and Running Your Own Business

Working for yourself is challenging, creative, personally satisfying and can be very lucrative. The most successful business people make fortunes for themselves. Yet even with moderate success, you will earn far more from your own business than by working in a similar job for someone else.

Being your own boss will give you a degree of independence and freedom of action that many will envy. Your work will be varied, interesting and with rarely a dull moment. The depressing boredom of a monotonous job, an unpleasant boss, or the misery of low pay, can all be left behind. Running your own business gives you the satisfaction of being in control of your own destiny and you’ll quickly realise how much more enjoyable working for yourself can be.

If you are ambitious, and want to succeed, then there are some very powerful reasons why you should start your own business. It is a step that will change your whole life.

And, to help you make that change we provide you with a course that is compiled by successful business people with extensive experience and knowledge. Validated by independent experts, it is comprehensive, authoritative and practical in its application

See What The Experts Say

“I have studied the course with great interest and would commend it as a clear, easy to read series of lectures. It will give any would-be entrepreneur considerable insight into how to avoid the many pitfalls of going into business.

“I am bound to say anyone who follows this course rigorously will increase their chances of success.”

T.D. Andrew
Former Merchant Banker

“I found the whole programme very well balanced, covering all the major aspects of starting a business. It is most important for any person starting in business to understand the potential problems and pitfalls and although this may seem negative, I believe that with this understanding many of these problems can be eliminated.

“Success in business demands perseverance and determination and this course emphasizes these and other personal qualities which are needed when starting a business. Running a business can be very lonely as the world is a competitive place and people starting in business need all the help they can find. This course will give them that start which should position them ahead of the others and lead on to the success which they desire.”

Michael Adam
Management Consultant

“This course is designed for people who have a desire to start their own business but have little idea about the mechanics of going about it. If you are in that position you will find this course contains a mass of material directly relevant to your needs. It is written in a down-to-earth way, avoiding unnecessary jargon and complication in what can already be a bewildering situation for the aspiring business person.

“This is a very comprehensive course and the tone is always practical and encouraging. The modules cover everything that you will need to consider – from personal qualities and skills, to devising a business plan, to pricing and estimating and the all important financial aspects of running a business.”
