A few years back I entered the Punch shoe repairer of the year awards (5 times over 8 years) And part of the process was a judge spending considerable time in the shop. I treated this as a free consultation. I always acted on his advice. which included things like,


better lighting & lowering light fittings from ceiling to reduce low down shadowing etc.


Over the years this advice was invaluable, helping transform my shop from a struggler to a survivor. I always watch trouble shooting type programs even if it is Ramsey you can learn a lot from them.

I've used business link in the past ( http://www.businesslink.gov.uk )

Phone them up & they will send an advisor to visit you to help with any aspect of your business. Best of all it's funded by the government & is free!

I used to get a visit every couple of years to help me with various aspects of the business, advertising, legislation, merchandising, setting up a website, etc etc.

Time I called them again, it's been too long, & what am I paying these taxes for anyway!
