Buy a business
Business buyer guides
Try to update the stock you have and think of new ways to make money
Put the right stock in the right places and customers often buy goods on top of what they came in for
Make sure you can take the pressures of an early start and a long day – working from dawn to dusk is something you may have to get used to
Move to an area where you think the business will bloom – supermarkets can be a killer for small retail outlets
If you see a business for sale that’s in a good location but needs a facelift, then pounce on it. You can make your mark – and a profit.
