Start A Business
When I was a kid, my mother used to drop pieces of advice on me as they happened to occur to her. One day, she said, somewhat out-of-the-blue: Never buy a business; you’ll come out much better if you start your own.
I did do exactly that, when I was twenty-two and started freelancing full-time. Now, decades later I’ve discovered a series of books aimed at people wanting to start various highly specific businesses.
I stumbled onto Entrepreneur Magazine’s Startup Series when I saw their book on blogging: Start Your Own Blogging Business, which is quite good, very thorough and detailed. The previous publications page showed 36 other books,
Start Your Own Bar and Tavern
Start Your Own Import/Export Business
Start Your Own Medical Claims Billing Service
or Car Wash, or Gift Basket Service, or Growing and Selling Herbs and Herbal Products, and so on.
If you’re thinking about starting a business, do check the Startup Series to see if your specialty is included. I felt a spark of interest in starting something just from looking at the list.
