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,

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!
Best wishes,

Hi.I don't understand why Duncan had answered harshly to Richard.Duncan was larking about or what?
