Business author Emma Jones inspired by local entrepreneurs

18th May 2010

Popular business author Emma Jones is set to promote business ownership in Shropshire this month.

The writer, who is the brains behind free online business resource Enterprise Nation, picked Shropshire as two of the entrepreneurs featured in her new book are from the region.

She claims that business owners are increasingly turning their hobbies into moneymaking enterprises.

Speaking to the Shropshire Star, Jones said: 'It was in late 2008 when I spotted a trend, which involved people setting up a business without giving up on their full-time job.'

'This is low cost and low risk and the very best way to start,' she added.

Jones claimed that more than eight million people in the UK will have some form of home income to buoy their finances by the end of 2010.

The author also wrote the bestselling business book Spare Room Start Up.
