Going it alone is not easy however, and beyond the appeal of being your own boss it can be a challenging and tough time. If successful, working for your self is rewarding and lucrative, but very rarely is it all plain sailing. Being prepared for the pitfalls is essential.

In his new book, Confessions of an Entrepreneur, author and serial entrepreneur, Chris Robson charts the highs and lows of starting a business, told through the anecdotes of people with first-hand experience. The book is organised into the emotional roller coaster of embarking on an entrepreneurial venture, from excitement through to strain and then onto clarity - when you know whether you’re going to sink or swim.
