Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you tonight.

Going into business for yourself takes a tremendous amount of time that you are not compensated for. Additionally, you will need to learn many new skills such as book keeping, taxes and insurance for example.

A good place to start is by creating a business plan. If you are not sure how to create a business plan, I recommend you visit your local Small Business Administration office who is staffed with volunteers who will assist you in creating a business plan. You can find additional information at www.sba.gov

I would be happy to answer any additional specific questions you may have.

Thank You!
