I know I know, this is an extreme example but it does happen. I have the utmost respect for any entrepreneurs who come up with an idea, successfully build their business and employ people on good wages and T & Cs.

Wetherspoons and First Direct are not included.
You can't "squirrel away" your house if your bank has a charge over it as collateral. And this is the case for most start-up businesses. This was even the case for a New Zealand company I was involved with which was the world-leader in its field! It's owner still had to give personal guarantees to the bank.
