If you are frustrated by the lack of challenge posed by your job, think your boss has got it all wrong and have a long-held desire to start your own business, you’re not alone.

A poll taken by StartupSmart has revealed that most people are keen to go it alone, although many admit they lack the key skills to do it.

Today, we look at what is driving people to start up their own business and get some expert opinion on what you should do if you are contemplating taking the plunge.

Elsewhere, we explain how to start a bookkeeping company and mentor Jane Shelton has some tips to help you not go crazy if you’re staring at the same four walls in your home-based business.
