I work for a green engineering firm. I find the work very boring although it helps the world my boss seems to think he is the worlds savoir and it gives him the right to be rude to his employees everyday and it really gets annoying so for these two reasons I want to leave. My business idea is for me to set up a website advertising myself as like a ‘green save money consultant’. People would employ me to go round there house for a fee of about £100 and I would tell them ways it could be made greener. There are a lot of ways people don’t even think of. Obviously I would mention the basic stuff such as double glazing, solar panels, a wood burner. I do however know a lot about this industry and know things that I would mention without a fee. After the initial £100 I would offer to do the work for them (organise all the changes) for about £30 an hour (I am targeting the very middle class areas of London where this isn’t considered much money). I would also make money through recommendations, for example I would always recommend a good quality solar panel company, providing they paid me per referral. I would of course make sure they were up to scratch. There would be sponsorship on my van aswell for local companies. I think there is a chance I could even get a grant to set it up. What’s your feedback?
