1. How to think free
  • work from home
  • use the skills you already have
  • use the resources you have at your fingertips
  • do all the work yourself – and don’t pay yourself a wage
  • hold on to the day job
  • source free equipment
  • tap into free inspiration
  • access free research
  • get a grant
  • learn the business skills you need for free
  • make the most of skills technology
  • make sure of existing local infrastructure

Action plan

  1. Find out what free local business networking groups are in your area. Join them.
  2. Think about the existing infrastructure in your area which you can take advantage of a half – empty hotel? A little – used town hall? A theatre which is only used in the evenings?
  3. Write down a list of the resources you already have to hand, and skills you have which you could charge for.
