Secrets of Success

Starting a

Small Business

Home My Books About Me


Hi, my name is Chris Orford, I’m just over 60 and live with my wife in very small village in the middle of nowhere.

I qualified as a solicitor in 1976 and retired a couple of years ago in order to set up as a consultant to small businesses.

Both during and before I qualified as a Solicitor, I specialised in the affairs of small businesses. I have acted in their sale and purchase; in drawing up agreements for them, then selling or buying them.

Over the years I have accumulated a huge amount of know-how in acting for clients and I have also owned my own businesses at the same time. It is unlikely that you will have a problem I haven’t seen before.

About 3 years ago, I started to put some of my knowledge down on paper - hence my books. The purpose of this site is to give some of my knowledge back. The site gives my top ten tips for starting a business. I hope to add more information to it from time to time so please keep coming back.

If you have any ideas or comments then please get in touch. I welcome comments - good or bad. Please use - or just click on the address.
