Every new business starts with a dream, but why do some of those dreams come true and others turn into nightmares? Our new 'Real business' series features British entrepreneurs and their honest, real-life accounts of being a business owner. Detailing the highs, the lows and the secrets of turning a start-up into a successful business, these are 'must read' case studies for anyone interested in being their own boss.

If you are a business owner with an interesting story, please get in touch! We'd love to hear from you.

We compiled a list of the best, including inspiring real-life stories, off-the-wall comedies and dark and disturbing classics.
