I am currently in Year 13 and I am not sure what I will be doing afterwards. I know that I don't want to go to university as it is too expensive and the courses I want to study have no real-world value.

I am torn between a degree apprenticeship and starting my own business. A degree apprenticeship would allow me to earn money get real-world experience and a degree. However, my father is a business and owner and I am essentially one of his employees. I have seen how tough it can get however, I know that I would enjoy the challenge of running a business. Any Business Owners here who have tips on how to break into an. industry? Also any advice on what I should do?

My dad owns a business and suggests that you shouldn't start a business without having some experience. Maybe do a degree apprenticeship and start your business if there's time. Then you'll have a chance to grow your business with a steady income rolling in.

Try tutoring or babysitting.
Advertise yourself properly. Create some good mini adverts or design flyers that accurately describe your own skills and qualities and do your online research properly too. Focus on your own skills here. Hand out a few colourful leaflets or sell your tutoring skills online via Facebook. Display contact information on your site.
