Sir James Dyson 'Packed with start-up business advice targeted at the talented...Branagan- a creative-industries business consultant- lays out a useful, thorough guide to practical enterprise.' Accounting Technician (January 2011) 'There are many books on the market that purport to teach new creative businesses how to set up and run their own businesses.

Each area is clearly laid out with plenty of tips and tricks, common pitfalls and further sources of information.'

The book profiles seven artists and designers, from a surface designer to photographer, sculptor to web designer. They all give simple, concise instructions and easily understandable advice.
