Deidre the famous Sun problem page columnist has been sacked from her job due to some
   pretty poor advice she has been giving to the readers lately. You have been employed as
   her replacement and Friday has now been changed to a Business problem page, but
   luckily you are an expert in it!!!

Below are four letters you have received. Read through each letter and recommend a type
   of business along with outlining the advantages and disadvantages of it.

Dear Deidre, I’m so confused! I am looking to go into business with my best friend and
   share all the risk and profits. We don’t have a massive amount of cash and don’t want the
   set up to be complicated by legal issues. Can you help us?

Dear Deidre, myself and four friends are thinking of setting up a business but have some
   concerns. We want to invite other potential shareholders to invest in the business but
   don’t want to lose our houses and cars if things go wrong! Any advice?

Dear Deidre, I presently own a large ltd company but want to raise more money to fund
   future expansion. What do you think my best option is?

Dear Deidre, I want to set up a small sandwich shop in Gateshead. I have secured a loan
   from the bank and want to make all the decisions myself. What do you think?
