Starting Your New Gift Business

You have a friend!

Starting a new business is exciting.  It is the dream of almost everyone who must work for a living, to have the BEST of all bosses — themselves.  The fact that you are reading this means you already are one of these people or you're at least thinking of becoming one.

I've got great news for you:  there has never been a better time to do it.  Between the endless free social media marketing platforms and the countless online tools, resources, and solutions, entering the marketplace is easier than ever.

You don't need to pay thousands of dollars to have a professional programmer build a website from scratch and you don't need to pay for advertising.  You don't need to maintain a huge inventory, and you definitely don't need a brick and mortar store.

And the best part is, you are not alone.  

A little help from a friend is what can make all the difference between success and failure.  Thousands of people are on the same journey as you -- the same exciting, sometimes terrifying, wild and crazy ride of putting yourself and your heart on the line as you create a business.

Most of us don't start a business because we love business.  We love using our skills to make something that we think others will enjoy.  The business part is just a way to make some income in the process.

But the business side can be be overwhelming and frustrating and drain our energy.  I've been there too.  I know the struggles firsthand.  That's why I want to help you.

I could tell you stories about the mistakes I've made and lessons I learned the hard way on my journey to success. It can be overwhelming.  I still sometimes wonder why I'm doing this.  Trust me, I feel overwhelmed just creating this website.

You and I are in this together.  I did it.  And so can you.

This website isn't just my own experiences of starting, running and growing several different businesses; it's also based on my years of working with other people who have done it.

My goal in creating this website -- which will continue to be a work in progress -- is to make sure that you have what you need to start and grow your business.  This website is created for you.

So . . .congratulations on your decision to be an entrepreneur . . . and welcome to the Success Express where you will find a friend.

Let's get started!
