This economy is the perfect time to step back and evaluate career choices. The timing for starting a business has never been better. You will be poised for the inevitable upturn. Prices are lower than they’ve ever been. People are open to bartering. Labor is less expensive. The tax advantages alone make it financially rewarding.

I’m a battle scarred entrepreneur ready to share the realities of what happens when someone is brave enough to step out of comfort zones.

There are professional business sites for networking such as LinkedIn and Naymz. A good busines profile site ZoomInfo. These help your name appear in Google search results. And, everything you type is public.
