Starting Up Your Own Business

Hello BKLYN

Searching For Answers
Anybody here ever did it? What route did you take to do so? How long did you take to obtain enough funds to do so? How did you get the funds (got friends family to invest, business loan, all yourself etc)...

For the business you started, how did you learn the ropes? the ins and outs of the business, how did you educate yourself? Did you work with someone/company in that business and learn it that way?

Freelance copyediting business started based on my natural skills and because I couldn't work outside the home at the time due to no childcare available to work the types of jobs that were flexible around a school schedule.

Didn't need any funds just my brain, paypal, and an internet connection. Did the edits in Word's Track Changes feature and the person could accept or reject as they felt like.

I dabbled in all sorts of schemes until I realized i was only making other people richer.. Basics to any business is to have a plan. Hope for the best and plan for the worst.. Start small and dont over extend yourself too quickly... :yu:

What you mean by route? ..... It didn't take much to obtain the funds to do it since at the moment the business is online and the money we had to find was to build our website (still under construction) ....it is between me and two friends...

The business is in the field that I went to school for so that how I know the ins and outs so to speak as well as I have more than a few years experience in the foeld
