Who runs Mean Business?
Mean Business has been created to host the downloadable resources of brad-ashley on TES and the published material produced by Printed Resources. Any works produced by other authors are clearly credited with agreements in place to use Mean Business as their platform for distribution.
Can I join in?
We have plans to produce revision guides for other exam boards, other Business and Computing courses and even other subjects! We want to work with teachers who have existing resources who want to publish their work - please use the 'Contact Us' link in the bottom right hand corner of this page to get let us know what you have! Before doing this though, your work must be extremely well written and fully mapped against the specification for which it is intended; your work doesn't, however, have to be well designed because we'll sort all of that for you!
How do I report an error in a resource?
All resources are proof read many times and, though it's very rare, an error can be missed. If you've downloaded or purchased a resource that you think contains an error, please use the 'Contact Us' link in the bottom right hand corner of this page to let us know. If an error is found, it will be corrected and you will receive an updated version of the resource.
How long will my order take to arrive?
When you order downloads (products shown with a down arrow icon in their image), you will be emailed a link to retrieve your files within minutes. This link will be emailed to the address you used to place your order; please check your junk mail if you've not received an email. If you have ordered printed resources, these will be packed immediately. We ship orders twice weekly to fit in with school opening times; Wednesday evening for delivery on Thursday (Friday at the latest) and Sunday morning for delivery on Tuesday (Wednesday at the latest) - your shipping day will be the next available slot on Wednesday or Sunday, depending on the day you place your order. We're touching wood as we type this but... every single one of our deliveries has reached its intended destination without issue so far - and there have been a lot of deliveries!
How much is delivery?
All delivery costs have been reduced to just £4.99; postage and packaging for every order we ship actually costs us more than this.

How do I report a copyright infringement?
Our resources take a very very long time to produce and, though many are free, any that command a charge are extremely fairly priced. If, therefore, you notice our resources are being shared freely or hosted anywhere they shouldn't be, we'd really appreciate a quick message to let us know so we can resolve the conflict quickly. Everything we host on Mean Business has been written and created by our authors, whom are clearly credited, or notice is given to the origins of the material. No paid resource contains work that someone else has created but, if you believe this not to be the case, then please use the 'Contact Us' link in the bottom right hand corner of this page to let us know so we can look into it.
How can I suggest a resource for you to produce?
Sent us a message here... we receive a lot of suggestions for what resources we should produce and we find this is a great way of understanding what teachers want and need from us.
Is my data secure?
In short, yes! We only collect data for the purposes of processing orders. Mean Business uses Wix and PayPal to process payments, so we don't actually hold any of your payment details (they're held by the secure third parties dealing with payments on our behalf). The only data we see is your name, address, phone number and email address, these are only used to process your order and, if you've agreed, also used to send you an email from time to time. Our full privacy notice can be accessed by clicking here.
Question not listed here?
We'll update this page as and when new frequent queries arise. Until then, if you have any questions at all, please contact us and we'll get back to you fairly quickly!
