Our country has a lot of well-known successful business people, some of them are listed in the 2014 Forbes Billionaires. If given the opportunity to start and have my own business in the UK, I would love to have a small restaurant that would cater from low end to high end people. I think the most important thing in opening a business is the love and the enjoyment you have when doing it. Also, we need to take advice from the people who already are successful.

To anyone who is kind enough to check my paragraph, I deeply appreciate it.

Yeah I think so.In order to be successful you should love what you do and that bring the success in your business gradually, though. I'd have a quick look at your paragraph and you seem to be doing fine even though you have some grammatical errors.However, you are still be able to get your message across! :)

I can not watch the videos :(

A succesful business in my country is soy.
The entrepreneurs ears a lot of money every year.
I wouldn't start a business in England because I'm a doctor, but I'd like to go to Britain to work in a Hospital to do a post graduate practice. I don't know how it works the health system in Britain.
I new business like in other areas needs a lot of hard work.

I hope some day ,I 'll start a  business in  England  (I need to have a good level in English before) .
In my opinion the legislation in England  encourages entrepreneurs to invest and take risks  and I think ,the essential characters entrepreneurs must have   to succeed are hard working, confidence  and perseverance.

Hello every one,
I am from India, We have so many successful entrepreneurs in our country but one of the distinguish&Successful entrepreneur is Mr.Ambani, I was pleased when i seen above video If i get a chance to do a business in uk i will defiantly start.Need to look towards a market gap to start a successful business...
Thank you British Council

Actually, in my country there is not creative minds to discover opportunity for their business. They normally follow the ways that have already been found out and practice the same ways.
I was really inspired by seeing this movie. Of course, I will consider business in Uk.
 
Creative thinking and then there should be ground for realizing such thinking and of course the should be some support as well. 

Hello Arasto,
That's interesting to hear how you feel about the culture of entrepreneurship. Good luck with your business!
