    Ok thank you a lot I am doing gcse OCR business studies coursework and the coursework work is about Kirsty car servicing the information we have been given is that

    Kirsty is a 24 year old who had always been interested in cars.her interests in mechanical aspects of cars has helped her progress to being the assistant manger at large garage.

    Kirsty has inherited some money and now wants to open her own car servicing business. She wants to work with female vehicle technician to offer a service for female drivers who she feels are often scared by dealing with male workers in garages.

    Kirsty has no experience of running a business of her own. Although she has inherited enough money to buy premises and equipment,there will only be a little spare capital for other business expenses.

    To help her make the decision about whether or not to go ahead with her own idea,Kirsty has put her thoughts on paper. These are shown in figures 2.

    You must give advice to Kirsty on how she might develop and market their business idea

    Risk
    Will I fail?i haven’t failed at anything in my life.
    What if I have to fire someone?not an ideal situation.
    What happens if I can’t get female vehicles technicians?
    I will be giving up a steady,reliable income.

    Reward
    I will be my own boss. This means I can choose the hours I work and take all the holidays I want, when I want.
    I can choose the people I work with.
    I can set a new trend in car servicing.
    Working in my own business will be so much more peasant than salving all day for someone else.
