How many of you are in jobs that you hate going to everyday?
Do you have a great idea and dream of starting your own business? What's stopping you? Fear? No funding? Do you know how to write a business plan to obtain funding? Do you have an IRA you can tap into? http://www.sba.gov/smallbusinessplanner/plan/writeabusinessplan/SERV_WRRITINGBUSPLAN.html How much funding do you think you need to start your business? Most small businesses start with very limited funding and profits are reinvested. My own husband started with his business with $6000.drawn from his IRA. He rented a single piece of equipment and purchased insurance after obtaining a license. He and one laborer were the only employees the first year. He made $24,000. The second year he hired three more employees and his net was $60,000. As need grew he rented more equipment and hired more people. Within 7 years he had 25 employees and his business was grossing around $5,000,000 per year, with profits averaging about 5%. What I am trying to say is that if you have a plan, and you want to control your own destiny, you can. Be it printing tee shirts with a silk screen machine, lawn maintenance and yard work, pest control, driveway resurfacing, a recipe people die for, etc.......there are SO many things that you can do, and with very little start up money if you just set your fear aside. In most cases all you need is a DBA (Doing Business As) to start. Use that federal funding if you need it because (d**n IT!!) WE pay for it! USE IT! http://www.sba.gov/financialassistance/ There is my rant for the night. I could give you 50 amazing success stories off the top of my head, myself included. My father has one of the most amazing success stories ever told. YOU CAN DO IT!! Don't let anything stop you, especially fear. Find out what you need to do and DO IT!! Our country depends on your great idea!! Good luck and have a good night. (I might be back, but my account may be suspended because almost all of my questions and answers the past few days have been deleted.) I love hearing that volleyball! Good for you, honey!! It sure wasn't me giving the thumbs down. I LOVE teachers!! I'm SO sorry to hear that gws. At least you tried. Maybe something out of your home would work out. That way you can deduct a part of your mortgage off as a business expense. Was it a restaurant? Restaurants are very, very risky and the #1 business that fails within the first three years. ( I was very lucky) Hey there pretty boy River, I think your hair dye is seeping through and into your brain. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AoLpKdo5qKINFZma_16yvwjty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20100326195827AA1feXH
