Starting your own business now? You are not alone...............

    Why NOW? For the first time since the recent recession, business startups are exceeding business failures. The % of individuals in the US actually starting a business is up 50% since 2010. If your current workday is one that is going nowhere fast................why not at least look into determining if self-employment is for you?

       It has never been a better time to take the plunge.  It has never been cheaper to start a business- technological advances, cheap interest rates, the ability to work more at home, and low-cost social media marketing and networking; all these factors make your initial cash investment smaller than ever.

      A new business is all about using your brain and figuring out what goods or services the world, your state, your city, or even your neighborhood needs but can't get; or to get that good or service it is either just too hard to get, too inconvenient to obtain , or just doesn't exist at all.  Research your idea - you can never do enough research. Then test market your idea on your target market and see if your idea for a new business makes as much sense to others as it does to you. Is your product or service one that really solves someone's need or pain? Is it really unique? Is your idea a realistic one considering your current lifestyle and financial situation?

      We all need to go thru this thought process at some time time in our lives. Is this YOUR time?
