Entrepreneurial Spirit

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Drive and confidence are two things that are needed to take the plunge and start your own business. That is the findings of a new study commissioned by self storage provider Space Station. They found four out of five Brits have the confidence and drive to start up their own business, but financial risks (54 per cent) and fear of failure (40 per cent) are holding them back. But despite these fears 62 per cent of those surveyed wanted to be their own boss with slightly more woman than men aspiring to work for themselves. This comes as no surprise for us here at Sovereign. Every day we see that entrepreneurial spirit through our clients and their businesses and of course the people we speak to looking to take that next step and become a business owner themselves, they know that by using the North West’s fastest growing business transfer agency they are exposing themselves to a vibrant robust economy with some of the most desirable and cosmopolitan places in the country to own a business. Still in two minds about taking that next step and turning that entrepreneurial dream into a reality and ditching the nine to five?

We have a range of businesses to suit every taste and budget. From Beauty Spas to Sandwich and Coffee shops, and of course if you have any questions get in touch, because at Sovereign we always put our clients first.

A Mayor for Manchester

The election for a mayor for Manchester has come and gone. The polling stations have been closed and the votes counted. Posters and signs have been taken down and life continues. But what does Andy Burnham becoming mayor really mean for the city? Our new mayor has pledged to tackle homelessness and provide affordable housing but what about the local economy? One of the aims outlined in his manifesto is to make Manchester a leading digital city. The digital industry in the Greater Manchester region accounts for 55,000 jobs and generates over £3 billion per annum. The mayor plans to make sure that local people have the skills in place to keep this industry growing. He will do this by working with businesses, schools and colleges to raise awareness of the range of opportunities available in digital careers. This all sounds positive for a city that is fast developing into the economic hub of the North, and if new plans for improved infrastructure for the city come to pass, the future under Burnham’s stewardship looks very bright indeed. But you don’t need to tell us that here at Sovereign. We are experiencing a buoyant market in the world of business transfer and even have a number of digital enterprises as part of our portfolio. Including an online Bridal Accessories business which with the current trend for smaller bespoke wedding is a real opportunity. We also have a fantastic news and entertainment website which even with all the information we now have at the touch of a screen or click of a mouse really stands out from the crowd. Sound interesting? Then check out our website for more information, you could find just what you’ve been looking for. **Official Department of Health photo of Andy Burnham MP as Secretary of State for Health**

Happiness In The Workplace

Happiness In The Workplace

Work is a big part of most of our lives. It is a place we drive business, make a difference and hopefully form positive relationships with our colleagues. But how happy are we in the workplace? A new survey carried out by Wildgoose has tried to find out. The company surveyed employees at 120 businesses across the UK and the findings are very interesting. Wildgoose found ‘more than six in ten workers value happiness over salary, indicating that the office environment plays a role in not only attracting talent but retaining the best employees too.’ This is definitely an ethos we support at Sovereign. We believe by making the workplace a fun and vibrant environment as well as giving our clients the best possible service, this helps us stay at the cutting edge of the Business Transfer Industry and this is reflected in the fact we have a proven track record of selling all types of businesses. So whether you are looking to buy or sell don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are adding to our portfolio all the time and to see a diverse range of businesses for sale check out our website. It could be the first step in achieving your goals and having your own fun and vibrant workplace.

Licence to Chill

If there is one thing that most Mancunians have in common; it’s that they know how to have a good time. It is no coincidence that probably the most iconic nightclub to ever open its doors in the UK was here in Manchester. But just because the Hacienda is now an apartment block doesn’t mean Manchester nightlife has lost its cutting edge. The trendy enclave of the Northern Quarter is testament to that, with chic bars and clubs nestled among exotic independent eateries and shops selling everything from music to vintage clothing. This is a city that in recent years has become a byword for entrepreneurship, nightlife, and pushing boundaries. You only need to take a walk through the centre to see all the development and construction as further evidence that this is a city that is still very much evolving and has shaken off its post industrial gloom and embraced the sophisticated cafe culture of its European neighbours. Not to mention produced more than its fair share of cultural icons, including the frontman of the iconic band the Stone Roses, Ian Brown, who it’s rumoured said when asked about his hometown that the only thing it was missing was a beach. Here at Sovereign we may not be able to quite fulfil that criteria but we do have a chain of ultra hip bars across the Manchester area for sale that boasts both a healthy turnover and bags of urban cool, which means they are full of savvy revellers who know how to have a good time. A licence to chill, perhaps? But of course who needs a licence when you’ve got Manchester? Even without a beach.

Cappuccino Dreams

Cappuccino Dreams

Many of us have while getting through the nine to five grind thought about starting our own business. Maybe the reason you haven’t took the plunge at being your own boss is because you have considered risk versus reward. Of course going out on your own is a risk, especially if you have a stable position with various aspects of security and benefits. But there is also the reward aspect. For a start you work your own hours and any profit you make is not going to a shareholder or a board of directors but straight in your pocket. Still interested, well have you thought of owning a coffee shop? With relatively little investment in relation to other businesses you could make that thought a reality, as in today’s high street it is rare not to see at least one independent coffee shop occupying a place among other eateries and large chains. Also with dedication and the right marketing you could develop your business into a bistro or evening cafe bar. Who knows, maybe if you create a unique atmosphere and ambience or perhaps offer alternative drinks like milkshakes or smoothies it could even develop a reputation as a place to have that important meeting or simply a good spot to chill out with friends. At the moment Sovereign have wonderful independent coffee shops for sale in the fashionable suburb of Didsbury, as well as others all across the North West. Sound tempting? If the answer is yes, maybe it’s time to get in touch and turn your cappuccino dreams into a reality.

Class of 92

They won titles and became Premier league legends, and now they are conquering the business world. I am of course talking about the members of the FA cup youth team that included Gary Neville, his brother Phil, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.  Between them they own up and coming Salford City who are fast making their way through the non league divisions towards the football league proper. Gary Neville with business partner Ryan Giggs also built Hotel Football at Old Trafford. But now he is planning an even bigger project. Gary’s plan is to create two skyscrapers, a 5* hotel and a spilt level public plaza in Manchester city centre just off Deansgate. The scheme could create more than a 1000 jobs and is believed to cost around £200m. It may not be all smooth sailing though as the plans have their critics, chief among them is concerns that the huge structures might dwarf other Manchester landmarks like the town hall and the library. But if Neville shows the same determination to complete this project as he showed on the pitch the plans look likely to come to fruition. Here at Sovereign we have our own impressive landmarks for sale. One of which is a wonderful sea front apartment block in the resort of Blackpool in Lancashire complete with owners living quarters and a number of self catering holiday lets. But if large scale projects aren’t what you are looking for we also have a whole range of different types of businesses from lifestyle to investment. But don’t just take my word for it, visit our website. You might just find exactly what you’re looking for. Photo courtesy of Manchester Evening News
