Your Business With James Caan 2017 - 5
A WORD FROM JAMES
WELCOME TO YOUR BUSINESS
WITH JAMES CAAN, a magazine for all
entrepreneurs. This is the magazine for you
if you're seriously thinking about starting a
business, you have just taken those ﬁrst
baby steps towards your launch, or are
perhaps six months to a year down the line
and still learning as you go.
If you think you have a brilliant business
idea and you feel truly passionate about it,
you're in a good position to make that ﬁrst
move in the right direction. But ﬁrst you
need to ask yourself some serious questions.
Firstly, is there a need for your business?
By that I don't mean it has to be unique or
something that has never been done before.
Let's face it, most business ideas are
probably out there in some form or another.
You need to ﬁnd a method of doing it better,
faster, cheaper, or in any way that gives your
business a unique selling point.
In this issue there are tips from me on
getting your business started, including
how to structure a business plan (page 22).
Recruiting the best people for your business
is key, and I've got lots of tips on how to do
this (page 146), as well as how to use social
media to your advantage (page 162).
Nearly half a million businesses are started
in the UK every year - make sure you have
all the information you need to make yours
one of the success stories.
