Hello all,

I am really trying to get some ideas on how to start a business. I just honestly don't know what the first step is. I have a lot to learn and hopefully you all will be willing to share what you have learned with me. I am very new to all of this. I do know that I want my own business though. That's how my funds will continue to be steady and grow and I would like to have some thing that I can pass down to my child that is substantial. Please feel free to share. Thank you

Hi Tara,
Welcome to the forum!

What are your interests? Maybe you could brainstorm by starting to think of the things that interest you. Have you had any businesses before?

Hi Tara,

Kerri is right, passion is the key. You need to find something you really love to do. Something that is close to your heart - a hobby, interest, or cause that stimulates you everyday.

When you find it and build your business around it, you won't know the difference between work and play.

Good luck
