Me and the wife are planning to start our own Medical Staffing Firm. She is an RN and im an Electrical Engineer, which means I dont know a thing about Nursing lol. She knows everything about nursing but nothing about running a business, are there any resources we can check out on this topic or just running a business in general?

Thanks
-Mike-

Hi Mike, where abouts are you based?
If you're in the UK, then I would recommend checking out the DTi website, http://www.dti.gov.uk
There are also several schemes to help new businesses incuding

Small Business Service (SBS)
Guarantees loans from banks for Small businesses

SBS Smart scheme
A scheme that provides grants to freelancers and small businesses to develop technologies to gain commercial success.

DTI-led UK online for business programme http://www.ukonlineforbusiness.gov.uk
Helps UK businesses exploit the benefits of Information Communication Technologies.

Try saving yourself on banking Alliance and leister are giving free banking to businesses with no limit on length of time! Paying bank charges as well as start up costs doesn't help.

They also do new business loans..

Hi Mike

I'd advise getting in contact with Business Link. You can either call them on 0845 6009006 or via the web at:

http://www.businesslink.gov.uk

There's a whole host of useful stuff on their site and once you contact your local Business Link they can give you details of numerous courses and workshops, many of which are free, for people setting up a new business.

Regards

Joy

Most folks starting a new business need help preparing their sales materials. Most of us can use help improving our speaking ability. Staying self motivated through small biz start up is also a needed ability.

You may find Tracy Biller training CDs of interest. His primary business talks about MLM but his articles and training might be useful to your new venture. The topics in the headline above are available from his site. Good luck!

Here's a link to his site - Tracy Biller CDs

This site is a good business forum plenty of information and help in starting and running a business. http://www.ukbusinessforums.co.uk/forums/
Don't do what most businesses do and skimp on the logo design. It's the look of your business that your customers first meet.
