Thinking of becoming your own boss?

The Guardian has launched a fantastic four part series focusing on everything you need to know about becoming self-employed. We’ve had a read of the first two guides; they include a lot of useful information for budding entrepreneurs.

Part 1 – looks at how to set up as your own boss – http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/jul/01/self-employment-business-structures

Part 2 – focuses on what financial services you may need – http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/jul/08/self-employment-financial-services?INTCMP=SRCH

Look out for part 3 this week on the Guardian website!  http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/work-and-careers
