Running a business is more viable than employment, say business owners
Running a business is a more viable career choice than employment, according to British entrepreneurs.
In a new poll of 500 British business owners, more than half claimed that youngsters could have more success starting their own business than they would looking for a traditional job.
According to hrmagazine.co.uk, almost half claimed that the economic environment would improve for young business owners in the next couple of years.
This could suggest that there’s never been a better time to look at the franchise opportunities for sale – or even turn a unique idea into a business model.
The survey was conducted by Youth Business International (YBI), ahead of Global Entrepreneurship Week, which begins today.
In an interview with metro.co.uk, YBI chief executive Andrew Davenport called for those looking to start their own business to seek out some of the professional help available.
He said: “Entrepreneurs believe starting your own business is more viable than going into the workplace at the moment and that idea is likely to increase. When starting a business you face many challenges and often it is more important for young people to be given support and confidence in their idea than it is to help with funding.”
