Hi! My name is Derek Dearden, and I have been running businesses from my home, pictured below, since 1981.

For most of that time, I've been developing software and designing computer systems, but there are a wealth of opportunities available to almost anyone now, thanks to the Internet.

My businesses have given me a great life, but it would have been a lot easier if I knew the things I know now - the secrets I can share with you.

You can run a business of your own, with minimal overheads, negligible capital investment, and in the times and places that suit you! And I'm here to give you all the information you need on how to do it.

I'm no longer offering the 8-part email course that used to be available from this site. Although I got a lot of positive comments from students of the course, I feel that some of the material has become a bit dated, and that video-based training is more effective in bringing you up to speed with the skills you need to be successful.

Therefore I'm creating three new training sites - the first two completely free of charge and the third for a modest monthly subscription:

 

Firstly, I have set up a site providing free video tutorials on the basic nuts and bolts of how to build your website, and how to make it work for you. It starts with the basics of all you need to know to get your website life right now, starting from scratch: websitebuildinghelp.info

Secondly, I have created a resource site for all aspects of what it takes to create a business of your own which grows and prospers without enslaving you in the process. businessbuildinghelp.info

Thirdly, I'm working on an exclusive mutual-empowerment community for entrepreneurs. This will be launched in the last week of March, but you can find out more about what it can offer you here:
