Setting up your own business
Tired of being told what to do? Confident you can do it better? Have an idea for a new business? If so you’re probably thinking of starting your own design business. But you keep being troubled by big questions like how will you know if you can go the distance? Or what are the pitfalls? What does success look like?
Join our panel of creatives who made the leap to set up their own business as we ask them:
- Why did you do it?
- What’s it like not having a safety net?
- Who was your first client and how did you get them?
- What would you do differently?
- What were the unexpected consequences?
- Would you recommend starting your own business?
