Have experience. It is just common sense to deal in a business you are familiar with. If you want to start a bike shop, at least know how to fix a flat, for example. If you do not know, get someone with technical support to help. To start a small business many governmental offices require you be licensed. In some areas, you must “test out.” This means you will have to possibly take a test to be able to start your small business. Know you may have to be a resident, as well.

Pooper-scooper might have been a harsh name but you sure don't seem unfazed by it.That's a great and inspiring story right there.It goes to show,especially to the young people,that a true farmer need not get picky with his plough.You make do with what you have and some day-if your move is smart,after some intensive research on the idea's viability-your efforts will no doubt pay back.

I am planning to put up a travel agency. I still don't know how and where to start. I just thought of it recently. Anyone here who owns one?

Quite an inspirational thread to chance upon. Does anyone here know of how companies like Google, Sony and Piterion were started. They too should have been one or two ppl's idea initially. Please share if you know.

If you are good at something, keep yourself updated to everything that is happening related to your field. And I am sure people will start trusting you too and will recommend you to there friends.
Your story is inspiring! May I know how things are going now? Hope you are harvesting the fruits of your labor. Starting a business specially if it's online takes a lot of courage and risks also, there's no easy way to get to the top but I believe it will be successful soon.

Default Trump and Twitter

We created socialmarketing after watching Mr Trump tweet and drive the media crazy. We thought why couldn't we make a way for small business to use social media in a different and communicative way to get small amounts of information out to customers. Reminding them they are here and ready to work.
