Considering starting up


The success of your business will partly depend on your attitude and skills.

This means being honest about a range of issues.

You should think about:

  • the knowledge you have
  • your financial status
  • the personal qualities that you can bring to your new business

Commitment, drive, perseverance and support from family and friends will go a long way towards changing your business idea into reality and will be especially important during the early days.

South Tyneside is a great place for businesses to flourish.

With a population of around 150,000 as your potential customer base, excellent transport links into the Borough and a flurry of seasonal visitors.
