10 Micro Tips for Micro Businesses
Countdown to Starting a Micro Business ebook launch
Day 1: 10 days until the release of Starting a Micro Business ebook by Carol Topp, CPA
Saturday, May 1, 2010
As we count down to the launch of Starting a Micro Business, I am going to share tips on starting a micro business.
Today’s tip: Set a goal
A goal for a business can be financial or personal. Maybe you want to try out running a business to see if it could be your future career.
Meghan taught violin lessons to children when she was a teenager. She loved playing violin and enjoyed teaching so much that she decided to study violin in college. Running her micro business helped her find her future career.
Some micro owners have a specific financial goal for their business. Perhaps it is to buy a car, pay the insurance and fill it with gas. Many students run a micro business to help pay for a hobby, a trip or college, while others feed a love for music, iTunes or text messages.
Yara was homeschooled and started a micro business offering babysitting during the day. Her goal for the micro business was to pay for her horseback riding lessons.
Linnea has a goal to visit her homeland of China and started a micro business making and selling jewelry to save up for her trip.
Some micro business owners see their businesses as a launching point for another business. They take what they learned from running a micro and start another business, adding to their knowledge as they go.
