About Us:

Business4Beginners was started way back in 2013 after the founder, Paul had become frustrated with much of the advice he found online at the time.

With so much orientated around companies with their own products to sell, Paul decided it was time to help businesses without a hidden agenda. Thus, Business4Beginners was born.

However, the journey wasn’t plain sailing. In 2015, Paul was forced to sell Business4Beginners as he returned to full-time employment. Determined not to have his hard work down the drain, Paul begain work on his return.

In 2018 Paul had worked himself back into a position to buy Business4Beginners again, reuniting the site with it’s founder. Since then, the site has been completely revamped with many top-ranking articles and an ever-growing audience.

What does the future hold? Only time will tell, but we are working on some exciting developments to help position Business4Beginners as THE place for UK startups, small businesses, and sole traders to go. We’re thinking more in-depth training, video content, 1-to-1 support and a community aspect.

The best way to keep up to date and be part of our journey is to subscribe for your free guides above. You’ll then automatically receive priority access to all our new material as it’s released.
