Between watching football plays, I was doing some research on the internet. After four months of unemployment, it is time to seriously consider starting another business. DH’s business doesn’t bring in a steady income, but he is great at it so we want to keep it going. Anyway, we have a couple of ideas of how to combine businesses and have a steady income. His sister is also trying to get us to move to Maui, where this could also be possible.
Back to the research—the internet. It wasn’t that long ago that it would have been a pain to do this much research, especially today, a holiday. A few key words typed into Google and I was off. Rules and regulations, real estate, grant possibilities, competition, Chamber of Commerce were all there in seconds thanks to high-speed internet. Before, it would have been numerous phone calls and several visits to the library to get a fraction of what is now stored on my laptop. It is amazing!
The rest of the week I will continue to work on a business plan and see if all this is feasible.
