PM David Cameron on Home Business Startups in The UK “We Need You!”

Britain started as a nation of shopkeepers, then  along came the industrial revolution and the 9 to 5 slave nation began.

But now we’re heading back to our roots. Only this time it’s as a nation of entrepreneurs.

Home businesses contribute £243 billion to the UK economy, so it’s no wonder David Cameron sees them as “key” to Britain’s economy.

Emma Jones (founder of Enterprise Nation and the public face behind the Growth Voucher scheme) launched her Home Business initiative in London yesterday (15th Aug 2014) and much to everyone’s surprise David Cameron turned up and set out the UK government’s thinking on home business and its value to the UK economy.

My earliest ambition was to become a rockstar (my band once backed The Waves who went on to win the Eurovision Song Contest). Unfortunately I decided to start a business to support my rock star dream, and as luck would have it, the business took off big time and the rock star dream died. I was 23. By the time I reached 50, my total business count was 6. The last one was Accountz that went from zero to 36,000 customers in 6 years. I now run ProofMEDIA Ltd and my specialism is copy that wins trust, engagement and long term sales. I'm also a published author (including a Dummies title), have won many awards including the IAB Small Business Mentor of the Year, and am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
