Starting a new business is one of the most difficult and rewarding endeavours you may ever undertake. Whether you're planning to run a small business from home, or laying the foundations of a large corporation, there are many things you need to know.
Getting a new business up and running is one thing, but it isn't the final objective. In order for your business to thrive, you need to constantly re-examine your short and long-term goals and be prepared to make the changes necessary to expand your business.
If you're starting a new business with the intent of helping people in your community, you might want to consider starting a non-profit organization. In many ways, non-profits are similar to for-profit businesses.
