no previous part Part 1 of RESTART to Starting Your Business series Part 2: Part II Do I Need a Business Plan? »

Hi Friends, in an effort to live up to my promise, and as requested by numerous friends at Lumberjocks, and after 2 European business trips, and a few battery charges I have restarted this blog.

I have created a new blog site which already contains quite a bit of information. I have started the blog outside LJ’s for 2 reasons; I can increase mega content faster and easier, and I also wanted to show you how simple/fast YOU can get online with little time and effort. Please enjoy the site/blog, You can still post comments here, there or everywhere, tell your friends, colleagues, and family who are not part of LJ’s but would find use in the site, to stop by and enjoy.


URL “ ”: or and blogging at .

Reason for the URL’s, it is easier to bookmark so please do it now also sign up for the RSS or Auto feeds. SO lets us REbegin,

. . . I will attempt to whisper a few words of wisdom, encouragement, amusement, and caveats for consideration before and during your new business and personal journey.

Consider the cliche people often cite, ” the fun is in the journey not the destination ”. . .

I have learned the people who use this overused cliche never got lost, never had an accident during their journey; and of course they always arrived at their destination safe and secure.
Although, many people use it, and even offer it to you! Understand. . .

PS: A SPECIAL Thank to the people who emailed me and requested more. It is from you I have learned.

Wow Bill. The site is amazing. I’ve not read it all, of course, but I will. I don’t plan on starting a business, but I think it will be enlightening to understand what a business person goes through to get started and be successful. Thanks for taking the time to do this for us.

Thanks AMG. I have bookmarked your site and will revisit from time to time. I have always had an interest in starting my own business since my university days when I got my business degree. I have dabbled, however never took the plunge . . . but the interest is still there.

Just had the opportunity to read through this information. It is great, I think it is invaluable to people in business or thinking about starting one.

I also found it really informative especially the Godfather business scenario, I was rolling on the floor laughing but then said, man that guy knows what he is talking about. I would suggest anyone that is a Godfather fan read this section it is great.

Thanks for taking the time , I will look for more.

I’m an expert at starting a business. I’ve done it many times. Kind of like the guy that says “I know I can stop smoking any time I want. I’ve done it several times”.

I’ll be watching this site. Thanx!
