  • You know what would be any AMAZING help? Go to the microsoft website and look for a "business plan" template. work on it- it will give you an idea of your industry, start up costs, floor plans, EVERYTHING you need to know to give you an idea about having your own business. you have to do a TON of research but thats part of being succesfull. and you also need a business plan if you plan on asking the bank for a loan. i took a 6 wk biz class as part of my massage schooling and my biz plan was actually for my own made up catering company- "Arabian Wonders Catering" LOL. try it out!

  • Outsoursing, never do anything your self! This is the key to business if you do not do this and do all or some yourself than you simply own a very exspensive job!
