I remember what it was like when I started my business back in 2001. I must confess, it’s kind of embarrassing, but I hated it. I made a lot of bad decisions and it was sort of a crazy, confusing time for me. It would have been much easier if I had someone to help me avoid making so many mistakes early on.

Have you been sitting on an idea for awhile but not sure if you should turn it into a business? The startup process is very different now. Laying a solid foundation before the business launch will jump start your success.
