When starting your micro business, remember that every success story has to start somewhere! Humble beginnings are nothing to scoff at; most businesses start small. UPS is the perfect example. In 1907, Claude Ryan and Jim Casey borrowed $100 and a bicycle to deliver packages around their Seattle home. As the company expanded, the teens ran their business in the borrowed basement of a nearby hotel. Soon, it outgrew their few delivery trucks, and the teen founders merged with retail store delivery. Two teenagers started the United Postal Service over a hundred years ago, and it is now the world’s largest package delivery company! Claude and Jim didn’t start big. They ran a small delivery service from their home. With hard work and a little creativity, it grew into an extremely successful business. Your idea can, too!
Learn how to make that happen in my book, Starting a Micro Business, today!
