Hello All,

I sent this out about a year ago and it still applies today. I have learned that building a business is much like building a house, except with a house you have carpenters, plumbers, electricians, etc. With a business when you start out you are mostly alone until the business gets off the ground. Quitting early before getting the foundation up is much like digging the soil for your house's foundation and then walking away. Think about it and don't ever quit, because you'll never know what Freedom is all about.


So you think $269.00 and $19.99 a month is too much to start your business? Think again! Here is the latest article from, read it, and then continue to educate yourself while training to do a better job in your business!

Small-business owners spend about $10,000 to start their companies, mostly out of their own pockets, study says.

NEW YORK ( -- Many small-business owners started businesses with their own money, and with relatively small amounts, according to the Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index study. Small-business owners spend an average of $10,000 to start their businesses, the study said.

Seventy-three percent of business owners surveyed primarily funded their businesses with their own personal savings, while 37 percent obtained loans and lines of credit.
More than half of those surveyed, or 53 percent, indicated they would have had an easier time had more money been available at the outset. Yet just 31 percent of small-business owners surveyed started with business plans, the study found. Forty-nine percent say they would have had an easier time had they asked for more advice from experienced business owners, while an additional 39 percent indicated a better understanding of financial management would have been an asset.

"The reality of owning a small business is both exciting and a bit scary," Rebecca Macieira-Kaufmann, executive vice president and head of the Small Business Segment for Wells Fargo, said in a statement.

I look forward to hearing you on the training conference call this Thursday night and every week afterwards. If you dedicate yourself to being on the call, I'll dedicate myself to you.
