I was always a very business inclined person as my father is a successful businessman in Kazakhstan and my very favourite example. As my life coach he always told me that real businessman should do everything the same moment he/she gets the task. So, I decided to be the one who drives the process and called everyone for an extra-meeting. After we have done over surveys on the streets of Kingston, we needed to prepare a business plan, make a strong marketing and branding preparation and much more. Fortunately, we had a meeting with our lovely mentor the same day when we introduced our plan to her. She was impressed and we started clearing the objectives of our business with support of SWOT analysis.
The preparation started with submitting our company to Young Enterprise and applying to real business account.
Young Enterprise has also provided us with help of creating a real business account under the name of a branch of Y.E. They have also provided us with 80 pounds overdraft possibility but with limitation of getting the VAT back. That was stated in the agreement and as you know businesses in the UK have the possibility to claim their VAT back. That is why I always say you should read everything before the signing.
However, our trip to HSBC has given a great impression on me. We have been forwarded to a business department of HSBC bank which I have never visited before. We have signed the contract with financial director and submitted it to a lady. It was great impression as first time I was considered as a real entrepreneur.
