Business-Building Help on a Budget
Whether you're starting a busines part time or full time, you MUST get support in the way of information and resources. This is especially true if you don't have any marketing, sales, or business training.
As I've explained in my marketing copy, you can't just be good at what you do or have a great product–you need to learn to take care of all the aspects of your business. If you don't learn and get good at these skills, you will more than likely fail at being self-employed.
Although you may be starting out with a "shoestring" budget, you MUST have some budget planned for supporting your business. It's going to take money to fund the necessary basic elements of your business (I'll write more on what those would be in an upcoming post). If you don't have money to invest in your business, YOU DON'T HAVE A BUSINESS.
