How do you start a small business in New Zealand.

Answer: Buy a big business and wait

An old joke, admittedly, and Australian propaganda, surely (it also plays in Ireland). For more practical advice on how to start and run a small business, check out the UK's first ever national Small Business Week.

Backed by the DTI, the week is "set to inspire, inform and educate small business owner managers throughout the UK". There's a show at London's Earl's Court for three days and a seminar programme for the regions. You get to meet inspirational entrepreneurs, most of whom are running bloody big companies. And then there's Noel Edmonds, who made one fortune from TV and another from helicopters.
