Will 2015 be the year you start your own shedworking business?

If you haven't done so already, the latest report suggests that many of you will be taking the leap next year and starting a business from your garden office.

New research carried out by Angels Den UK’s largest 'business angel' network [disclaimer: its founders are friends of the Shedworking staff] reveals that more than one in ten people have put ‘starting my own business’ on their New Year’s resolutions list for 2015.

Although getting fitter, drinking less and losing weight unsurprisingly top the poll of nearly 2,000 people, 18 per cent said they were looking for a new job or a career change, and 11 per cent that they were planning to start their own business.

Of these, three quarters said that their plan was still at the 'just an idea' stage, but the other quarter had already begun the process of setting it up, such as obtaining a website domain name.

When asked what types of businesses they were planning to set up in the New Year, the top industries were:

1. Food/Drink- 16 per cent
2. Fashion - 13 per cent
3. IT- 8 per cent
4. Media- 5 per cent
5. Construction- 5 per cent
