Learning how to be an Employer, Accounts Department, HR Department, Company Director, Head of Sales, Contracts Manager, learning from how to do cashflow projections to end of year accounts. Starting a new business is the toughest most rewarding job I have ever done. 36 www.businessfirsto [K˝Z“PTTSBZ[Y[XXH^\Y[Hܚ[\HXۜ[[[H[X[][X][ۜš[\KX\&\\[\[ۈ܈Y][[[Y\\[ۈ]\HY[KH\[\š\ܛۈX[X[H[X[YX\8$[ MKY[]YYXH\8&\\ܛ[”SH X\[[HX\][HY[H[R˜[\[[8&H[ MH \NJK\]H[ܙX\Y\]][ۈ[BYX[Xۛ^KܛوH\[BX[\]Y[ M]Y[[[ܙX\[H \[ [JKX\›XYH[[\][HX[Hو LX[Y[ŒLLHX]HY[]H]X\\HY\\[œ[وݙ\0 HZ[[ۋ]\\ܛ[X\]Y[ M˂˛Y[]0[YYXKBX\\[LNMBVSHSVSHS Yۜ[[[X\][’HYZ[Y^\Y[H]YHقܝ\\[[8&\\\ܛ[\[Y\’Zۈ ][\HHY\JH[[Y[[][]Y\ VH[\[]\وHYX\[[\ H[H[YYۜ[[[X\][\YX\8$HX\][Y[H]\ݚYH[[\HXY[\XH]H\ۈ\X]Y[[[]H˜[[[\ܝ[H]H]\H0BX]\HY\[8$Y\H\]\ۂ[\Y[]\H[]\[ۂ[[\[\HH\H]ZXB[ٛܛZ[]X\][Y[Y\YX[[KH\H[Y[H][B[X\[ݙ\H\YX\]HܚY]ݙ\ L\[Y\[[H^][›]\\][H][ۘ[\[Y\˂[H^Hو\[H[YH\[ۛ^H[]H\ۘ[\XH[H]\ۈ[\Y[ HZ[[][ۜ\[BZ[]\[[X\][[\ZYۜ˂PTTSKY[]YYXBX\\[H\HX[Y[\X܈[[\وY[]YYXH8$HXX[\Y\\[Y[H]ٙX\[[\ X[[\˂X\[YH\[\[ LH0H][”TSHSS”TSHSSڙXڙX[Z]Y\[[\HXY\[HX][[ۜX[ۈ[X[]Y\›X[Y[Y[Xܜ[ܝ\\[[ \[H\H^H]\[\X\[ۈš[\YۚYX[H[\K[ݘ]]BXY\][\HX[0][YH\ܝ[˜[\Y\ۜH\Y\Y][]\ݙYHXZ܈[Y][[\XX[H܈H[\H܈[\XK\[x&\[Y\X[[[\[\]YYۚYX[\[\X\ݙ\H\ L[۝H[YۚYX[[Z[B۝Xܝݙ\0Z[[ۈ]Bܝ\\[[\[^X]]K\\[Y\ۛHXH\[\YYHY\\][[H]\B[\؝\[Y][ۈ\XYٙXH[\[[ \[x&\ܛ]YH\
