Reply To: Hi :) Ive recently lost my job and due to limited job opportunities are interested in starting up my own business. I have been wanting to do this for a long time and have decided with losing my job, this to be a good opportunity to take the big step and do so. I am struggling in trying to decide what area to put my efforts into. I have always had a keen interest in design, in both garden and interior styling. I have some skill and knowledge in each area. In researching online it seems to me both areas are saturated in businesses, large companies and small business. How do you decide what direction to choose for your business ?  how do you compete against an already over populated business market in your interested areas ? Thanks for your feedback :)

Thank you for your reply, it certainly gives me more of an idea on how to approach things and a direction on how to move forward Cheers Dee
