Business Advice

I've been talking for years (literally years... almost 10!) about wanting to start my own business... and now that I am job-free, it is time to bite the bullet and see what I can do. Its exciting but also scary and overwhelming. Part of what makes it so hard is not knowing how to go about things... so of course I am turning to blogland for some guidance and inspiration. While I dont know anyone in 'real life' that has done what I am trying to do, but it helps to know that there are so many people sharing their stories out there!

Some links I've had bookmarked for a while:

Business Blogs
Top to Bottom:
:: Design Sponge's Biz Ladies posts
:: Modish Biz Tips (no longer being updated, but lots of good info there!)
:: Jenny Hart's posts on VenusZine (also older, but her Sublime Stitching is amazing, so have to check it out)
:: Etsy's Blog, The Storque
:: Craft Magazine's Blog

If you have any resources to share, I'd love to hear about them!

OMG! I can't believe I found this. I am in the same BYW as you and as I was scrolling through homework posts on my way to leave mine I saw that you were in Chicago (i'm in the burbs). I read your part about "top 5 things I can bring..." and I think I literally feel the same as you (still trying to figure that out). Theeeen, I clicked on your blog link and found this post. I, too am in the process of starting my own business. So scary/crazy! We should talk more :)
