LONDON, August 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
- More women (66%) than men (60%) want to be an entrepreneur
- Almost three quarters of women aged 35-44 want to run their own business
New research published today by Pink Plumbers, shows that almost two out of three people (63%) want to be their own boss. In fact, women have more desire to run their own business (66%) than men (60%).
The research, carried out in May by One Poll, captures responses from 2000 UK adults. It shows that this entrepreneurial desire seems to run throughout all age groups. The results also showed that only one in five adults (20%) want to stay in their current job but fewer (17%) would go and work for someone else. So it's official, the best boss seems to be yourself.
Helping people realise their dreams
However, starting a business is a daunting prospect in boom times, let alone in the current economic climate and most budding entrepreneurs out there don't always have the necessary support to get started.
Jo Lawrence, single mum, entrepreneur and successful plumber, is determined to help women to set up their own plumbing business by providing them with the necessary support and confidence needed to get out there and just do it. As a result she has created a new hybrid licence/franchise model which gives entrepreneurs the support they need to get started without the costs usually associated with buying a franchise.
Jo, founder of Pink Plumbers, said: "This research shows that Britain is full of budding entrepreneurs - with women leading the way. The big issue seems to be getting access to the support to make the desire to be one's own boss a reality.
"Having a great business idea isn't enough to succeed. There are so many pitfalls waiting to catch out a new business owner and it only takes one mistake to break a business before it's had time to build up a customer base and financial reserves. A few wise words about how to avoid common mistakes could be the difference between success and failure. We therefore need more people to inspire and support other entrepreneurs to follow a dream of their own."
