Half of all UK start-ups fail within the first five years, so you need to have an array of skills in order to be successful. Listen to some advice from veteran small business owners as they explain what it takes to be sustainable.
We walked up and down London’s ExCel centre during The Start-up Business Show to find those who’ve experienced the ups and downs of running a business.
From working 16-hour days, to finding an experienced mentor, find out what people said when we asked ‘‘what advice do you have for someone who wants to start a new business?’’
Look out for more videos of our time at The Business Start-Up Show, which are coming soon.
In case you missed it, check out our interviews with Aletha Brown and Katrina Douglas.
