  • my mom grew up helping her mom in the wedding chapel my grandmother owned, with catering and as a florist. I grew up helping my mom do her in home floral business, and now i'm starting an in home floral business myself. So, i've got a background in the business, but it's been a little tough figuring out the laws in a totally different state and setting up my business here.

  • I've actually started several. My first business was medical transcription. I did that for several years when my kids were little. I've started my own mystery shopping business, and I've done some childcare. I have great ideas for businesses in my Blog. You can find that link on my profile page. It's easy to start an answering service business as well!

    the logo was my idea, but we had to pay a company to actually create it, and to be sure no copyright laws were broken too!

  • sorry,
    we spoke with several other people in the same business. we were very fortunate to have people be very honest with us about advertising and marketing and billing mistakes.
