    Welcome to the East of England community introductions thread. This is a new space for people in the local area to come in, say hello and let everyone know what their hopes and goals are from their time on UK Business Forums.

    Feel free to introduce yourself here and make others feel welcome :) If you know someone in your area who may benefit from joining in, be sure to let them know about us as well.

    While you're welcome to let people know what you're working on and a bit of background, please avoid anything that could come across as a sales pitch and, even if you're an established member, please don't link to your business here. The idea is to give people a chance to get to know each other and what's going on in their region.

    Thanks!

    Hi All,

    My name is James Burns, I own a company called JBC Contract Acquisitions Ltd which I set up just after Christmas. The original aim of the company was to allow me to subcontract my services out as a HGV driver with the possibility of developing various business ideas that my partner and I have.(Not logistics based.)

    I now find myself having to develop ideas and research them to establish viability like my life depends on it.( Which it does I guess.) My main focus at the moment is developing a small business administration system/guide for people new to self employment. I'm trying to put together a system/package that allows people with no knowledge and limited understanding a way to organise their business and explain the pitfalls of certain business models whilst allowing them to "hit the ground running" as far as setting up a usable model for their own business....... This is not aimed at larger organisations, more like subcontractors who don't want to work under an umbrella company, small start ups and newly self employed.

    I am interested in networking, discussions about business organisation, tax affairs and dealing with HMRC and anything that may help my business grow.

    Hi,
    I would like to stock modern classy ladies clothing & accessories
    I plan on doing the decor as french vintage style & feel in the area I am it will do quite well as there is not a lot of competition unless you travel 1/2 into the nearest city.
    I am hoping that I might have some help on this forum of trying to find really good ladies clothes wholesalers.:)
