The Apprentice Inspires Entrepreneurs To Go For It

Published: 5/29/2010

Sitting down and watching BBC programme The Apprentice is proving to be an inspiration to many viewers to set out on their own.

A poll carried out by Direct Line revealed that nearly 20 percent of people have thought about setting up a specific business whilst watching the programme, with a further 12 percent feeling that they should take the step of becoming their own boss in some form of enterprise.

One of the biggest things that inspired these people to believe in themselves was the feeling that they could just as well, or better, than the people on the programme. This is a very positive stance to take, though a Direct Line spokeswoman did want to advise people that setting up in business is more complex and testing than it can appear on television.
