Meet the entrepreneurs driving the boom of booze-free drinking | Guardian Small Business Network

“A glass of wine in the evening is such a marker, [going] from the rush of the day to the slowing down for the evening,” says Helen McGinn. As a drinks writer, the ritual is both work and pleasure. And so, when she signed up to last year’s Dry January, she went on a quest for non-alcoholic alternatives.

The search led to McGinn’s book, Teetotal Tipples, which was published in December 2016 and highlights a growing trend in adult drinking habits. The proportion of Brits regularly drinking is at its lowest (56.9%) since 2005, according to the latest research by the Office of National Statistics statistics. In 2017, 5 million people signed up to Dry January. Other campaigns such as Macmillan Cancer Support’s Go Sober for October, aim to encourage drinkers to abstain later in the year.

While researching for the book, McGinn came across non-alcoholic spirit Seedlip,

The Business Model

To extract value from an innovation, a start-up (or any firm for that matter) needs an appropriate business model. Business models convert new technology to economic value.

For some start-ups, familiar business models cannot be applied, so a new model must be devised. Not only is the business model important, in some cases the innovation rests not in the product or service but in the business model itself.

In their paper, The Role of the Business Model in Capturing Value from Innovation, Henry Chesbrough and Richard S. Rosenbloom present a basic framework describing the elements of a business model.

Given the complexities of products, markets, and the environment in which the firm operates, very few individuals, if any, fully understand the organization’s tasks in their entirety. The technical experts know their domain and the business experts know theirs. The business model serves to connect these

How much money do small businesses really make? What about solopreneurs and gig workers? Do many small businesses bring in revenues that exceed a millions dollars a year? Do small business owners live the American Dream? Vacation at luxury resorts? Fly off to exotic locations in their private jet while their legions of employees keep everything running smoothly back home? Or do they struggle to make ends meet?

How to Run a 6-Figure Freelance Business in 20 Hours a Week

Keep a profitable side-hustle venture, guard against burnout and continue to generate revenue.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Two years ago, I took my thriving freelance-writing business down to 20 hours a week of work, as I noticed that I had fallen into the trap of “More hours means more output, right?” At that point I had been writing full-time as a freelancer for six solid years and was growing tired of the grind. Since then, I’ve been able to run my freelance business as a part-time venture while still maintaining consistent high revenue.

Instead of seeing more output, I saw more of all the wrong kinds of things: fatigue, eye strain and overwhelm. It clued me in that something had to change, and it all started with the clock.
