Celebrating the people behind British small businesses


about us

SmallBusinessHeroes.co.uk is all about celebrating the real heroes making British small business great.

We set up the blog because we’re tired of a handful of celebrity entrepreneurs getting all of the glory. There are nearly five million SMEs operating in the UK (from sole traders to freelancers to high-powered CEOs)– that means five million business owners with a wealth of experience, knowledge and wisdom, and we think it’s high time everyone got a look-in.

Our promise to you, our readers, is to provide interesting, gritty and useful editorial about the issues affecting real business owners. So whether you’re a SME owner after some inspiration or advice, considering starting a business yourself, or if you’re just a bit curious about the issues affecting small businesses and entrepreneurs, this blog is for you.

Double whammy! Never afraid of saying it how it is, Heather has become notorious for taking on any rip-off artists or wrongdoers that cross her path. Just like Anne Robinson on Watchdog, but a bit less scary.
