(PRWEB UK) 7 April 2012
This month marks the launch of http://www.createyourownjob.co.uk, the brainchild of internet marketing guru Carrie-ann Sudlow. Carrie-ann has long championed small business, and sees the Create Your Own Job web site as doing her bit for the UK’s enterprise culture.
Create Your Own Job isn’t government backed. Rather it’s being driven by one person who started the project because they started a business with nothing and knows what a minefield it can be.
The UK Government is committed to helping small businesses flourish by reducing red tape. Yet with unemployment reaching record levels it’s not clear where aspiring small business people can turn to for inspiration.
Carrie-ann feels that Create Your Own Job, nicknamed CYOJOB, will appeal both to the unemployed and people looking to change direction. Carrie-ann says, “I wasn’t clear what I wanted to do in my twenties but if you follow what you enjoy and put in a great deal of work, it falls into place. These days it’s so much harder. I genuinely want to give something back to others who may be a in a similar situation I was”.
Create Your Own Job details ideas to inspire people to start their own business. Carrie-ann thinks too many people are inhibited from going the self-employed route because they think it will cost too much money or they don’t have ideas. Carrie-ann admits many of the business ideas listed on CYOJOB are low-key, but that’s deliberate. The focus is on businesses you may not exactly be able to start tomorrow, but where lack of capital is no impediment.
As an example, Carrie-ann says, “Say you want to be dog groomer. That you already have grooming skills. Well starting up your own salon obviously costs money. But do people realise they can just rent a space in an existing salon?”
The future looks brighter for would-be entrepreneurs. CYOJOB will soon feature an online store set to provide new start-ups with a cost effective way of buying supplies for all types of businesses and occupations. Right now Carrie-ann is looking for partners who provide ethical services to start-ups
