To be in earnest (4,8)


I believe the answer is:

mean business

'to be in earnest' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for mean business that I've seen before include "underhand affair" , "Intend to take positive action" , "Be deadly serious" , "Sees man in bus (anag) - be in earnest" , "usury" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
