Enterprise Nation under the charismatic leadership of Emma Jones continues to provide encouragement and practical help to all those thinking of starting or who have actually started a home business. They hosted an Enterprise Nation Conference last Friday and launched their latest home business report. Log on to download the complete report but some of the highlights are reproduced below:

  • 2.8 million home businesses contributing £284bn to the annual UK economy
  • Over 60% of small businesses started in the UK are started at home
  • 89% of home businesses expect to increase turnover in the next 12 months
  • The majority of businesses will grow by outsourcing and sub-contracting, as opposed to taking on staff
  • ‘Working 5 to 9’ is on the rise as people hold down a day job and build a business at nights and weekends
  • Home business is bringing families together and contributing to the local economy and environment
