hi andy,

welcome. How far are you as far as planning your business?
have you registered, made a business plan, have equipment??

Just curious as this year I too will start on my law care side of the business and we're the same age so we could probably help each other out...also i'm an accountant so I can help you out in that part

Hi Andy,

Welcome to our forum.

What made you all decide to go off on your own and start your own business?

Oh that is great!

What kind of lessons do you feel you have been able to take from your previous employer and apply to your new business now?
