This is a guest post from one of our many contributors. We are always happy to consider publishing high quality content on any topics relevant for small businesses. Get in touch if you want to know how you could contribute to our growing resource of advice for small businesses.
Small business owners can sometimes be isolated, working long hard hours to get their business off the ground and start making a profit. Or if you are not doing that you are out networking, building contacts and potential client lists. But sometimes it's good just to chat – talk over ideas, problems and issues. We are a group with a wide range of experience from project management to help you run your projects and business more effectively; accountancy to make sure you take advantage of all the tax breaks due to you; IT and web design for those annoying technical issues; and seo and digital marketing to help your website get found.
We also look at regulatory issues concerning, for example, retention of business documentation and document archiving, in addition to more basic needs such as finding business premises, whether that is a small home office in your back garden, space in a business hub or warehousing for your stock.
What we hope this blog will provide is somewhere where you can chat to like-minded entrepreneurs without the pressure to network. But also something you can dip in and out of from the comfort of your desk so that you can still put in those long hours that are required to create a successful business.

The best way to do that to ensure we see and respond quickly is via a comment on one of our existing posts – because we are all busy too…
