Our founders, Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish, are currently scaling the dizzy heights of the Amazon bestsellers list with their very first book, Build a Business From Your Kitchen Table. The book, published last week, is their honestly written guide to starting a business from scratch, from home. They cover everything from having faith in your idea to writing a solid business plan, where and how to look for funding, and the art of juggling a family with the demands of a time-consuming start-up. Drawing on their own extensive experience, they recount the early days of notonthehighstreet.com: the great highs and lowest lows, including some of the darkest times when they – not to mention the business – nearly didn’t make it through. Thankfully, they did, and they’re here to tell the story:
“This book, much like our business, is a work of love. It’s something we’ve both passionately pursued since we first had the idea to document our story to help budding entrepreneurs turn their dreams into reality. Whether you’re tired of working in a corporate environment and want do something with more heart and meaning, or you’re a stay-at-home parent who’s looking to make some extra income; we want this book to be a bible for anyone who is starting their own business from home.
We’re delighted to announce we’re holding our second bi-annual Job fair this September in London. Meet NotOnTheHighStreet and many other employers at this event.
