Tomorrow I have a class in Fundamentals of Starting a Small Business through the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center. Assuming I can implement what I learn there and that I’m already on the right track (I am pretty sure I’m on the right track), I should be well prepared to file DBA paperwork at the county clerk on Monday.
This fall I’m also planning to take a six-week class in grant writing, and I’m looking into starting an editing certificate program at the University of Chicago. (The financing for that one might be tricky.)
I’m really excited at how well the business side of things is coming together. I’ve got some excellent leads on future work and one or two projects lined up already.
