Rene Carayol’s Business Link interview encourages entrepreneurship for those with an idea even if they lack funding or experience

René Carayol said, “Some of the best local businesses I’ve come across, have come from the unlikeliest places. People who have no heritage or background in running businesses. People who perhaps aren’t in the most fortunate positions, people who perhaps…… you’d think the last thing they’re going to do is go and start a business – well think again.

“If you’re really up for it, you’ve got a good idea, your determined to succeed, then start talking to people about your idea, your business opportunity. You don’t need to be wealthy, you don’t need to have all the cash in place, you don’t have to have all the expertise in place, you’ve got the germ, you’ve got that idea and you are committed, go and see Business Link – you’ll be stunned by what you can achieve.”
