You can also consult our professional agony aunt for one to one confidential and private email advice which is specific to you or your specific questions or needs but she gives this information in good faith with no liability. One to one advice on how to set up and/or run your business is totally separate to a directory listing. Some only have a listing, some only have advice, some choose to have both.
