Wanting to start a children’s jewellry business: ask the expert

1_maghomepage.png

I would really like to start a children’s jewellery making party business, but I don’t know where to start.

There are obvious risks involved […]

1_maghomepage.jpg

I’d love to start a franchise so I can go part time in my day job. However, there is no way I can afford some of the costs they incur. I am currently in the process of an IVA which will last up to six years so therefore no credit company or bank will look […]
