Basic advice on how to run a successful business from home with a computer, modem and fax...

The Times





This book is a practical guide to the latest developments in business and communication technology, and how to put them into use. It takes you through all the steps needed to start and run a company in the 21st century.

Sound, impartial advice from someone who's been through the whole process from start to finish - Anthony Capstick Can offer you clarity to your cloudy situations.

The key to it all: understanding and exploiting the revolutionary changes in business and communications technology. It is now possible to run an entire business from one PC, using online services for research, e-mail and modem-based fax for communication, and simple DTP procedures for printed literature.

How can you start and run a successful business from your back room with only a computer, a fax and modem link, and a pocketful of change, and how can you exploit all the latest technological developments to grow an existing business?

Anthony Capstick has done both, and in this book he shows how. In 1991 he left the Financial Times to set up his own business: Instant Search, a business information service providing high quality reports and credit ratings on any company worldwide. He started with just a computer in a spare bedroom in his home in Lancashire and now runs a thriving business with six employees.

Anthony Capstick was born in Lancashire, went to school in Blackburn and studied Science at Manchester.

He left the FT to set up Instant Search - the company’s office is located in the historic village of Whalley, Lancashire. His wife Katie is a director of the business and they have 3 sons and a daughter..
