Rena and Feargal's advice for new businesses

1 Just do it

"If you are thinking of starting a business then stop thinking and start acting. The sooner you start a business, the sooner you'll start turning a profit. Now is a great time to start."

2 Advertise your business

"Don't be afraid to advertise your business. You need to constantly get the message out to potential clients. Marketing and advertising will create awareness and promote business opportunities."

3 Don't be afraid to ask for help

"Think about all the people you know, and all their experience and contacts ... most people are only too willing to help you when you are starting out. But you do need to be prepared to ask."
