Start Your Business:

Thinking of starting
a small business?

The Ultimate Business Start Up Guide...

Written by Zia Mallick the founder of Start Your Business Magazine. For over two decades 

he has overseen editorials in the UK’s most popular small business magazine. This book covers 

all the essential elements of starting up a small business…

“I decided to write this book in the era of social media and the information age. Although there is a wealth of resources available to start-ups, there is a blueprint that businesses can follow to ensure greater chances of success. I wanted to write a book to not only educate, enlighten, and inspire but also be a deterrent to those who do not fully appreciate the complexities of running a business. I hope I managed to achieve that.”
