I want to share a letter my friend and colleague sent to her client who requested direction on starting a new business. These are some great initial points to consider before beginning.

I can certainly appreciate your desire to launch your own startup. We entrepreneurs are, after all, driven to continuously create, innovate, and sell. And it doesn’t matter if your interests favor accounting, real estate brokerage, marketing services, or business/practice management; or new untapped markets, such as agriculture software, food e-commerce, remote visual communications, or public sector technology, Opportunities abound.
