Do you need business solutions and resources for your micro business? If so, this website is a great place to start!
What is a Micro Business?
I define a micro business as any business with no—or very few—employees. Sadly, there is no "standard" definition and each country, and agency within a country, defines a micro business differently.
So, to simplify matters, I will stick with my definition. If you have or would like to start a business that has no—or very few—employees, let's assume you are working with a "micro" business, regardless of how it is organized, or where it is located.
What Are Your Concerns?
Let's start to nail down why you might need certain business solutions and resources for your particular case. Do any of the following situations better fit your particular concern?
Hi, my name is Bob Foster, and I am developing this website to help solve the concerns listed above. I have worked for several decades as a business turnaround specialist and successful entrepreneur.
With a direct
and unorthodox approach, I specialize in starting new businesses and
saving businesses that have been deemed unsalvageable. You can read more
about my background in the About page of this website.
Now, through this website, I want to offer practical business solutions and resources for every new and aspiring entrepreneur who wants to have a successful micro business.
My intention is to also encourage and nurture your entrepreneurial spirit by offering guidance and practical resources to new and aspiring business owners, to help you navigate through the maze of starting a successful micro business.
This Website is Different
You will not find any academic jargon, or the latest business acronym fad on this website. I don't talk about "lean startups," or "x Sigma this or that," or "startup metrics," … or on and on.
There is a place for these business concepts, but I believe only a very few of the 6.2 million new businesses that start up this year will need to be concerned with them for quite some time—if ever.
Most important, you will find that many of my approaches to small business are quite different from mainstream media, business pundits, and gurus.
This is deliberate, because I have found over the years that much of what is currently being presented simply does not work in the real-life world of the smaller small business.
Every new and aspiring business entrepreneur is faced with a multitude of questions, such as:
These, and many, many other questions are answered throughout this website. If you have a question you cannot find an answer to here—don't hesitate to send that question to us through the Q&A page on the NAV bar, or you can click here. We'll do our best to get an answer for you.
I want this website to be the place where you can get all the
basic business information you need to make your micro business
How to Best Use This Site
I designed this website to be similar to the layout of a printed reference book:
If you are thinking about starting a business, or have only
recently started one, I suggest you start at the beginning of this
information website with the first Report of Section 1 -
Entrepreneurship, titled What is an Entrepreneur? (You might be surprised). Then read each of the Sections that follow.
Be sure to check back often, because new materials and features will be added frequently.
So, go ahead and check out my About
page, and then take a look at each of the Section topics of shown in the list below, and in more detail in
solutions and resources Table of Contents.
List of Sections
Following is a list of the sections that make up this business solutions and resources site. Each section begins with a list of the Reports included in that section.
For a complete listing of all the reports included in every section, refer to the Table of Contents :
Section 1. - Entrepreneurship.
The term Entrepreneur has become a fad, to the point where we now have Social Entrepreneurs, Lifestyle Entrepreneurs, Political Entrepreneurs and on and on. This section discusses what a Business Entrepreneur really is, and how to know if you fit that definition.
Section 2. - Starting Up.
Starting a small business has a myriad of considerations. This section covers many of them, and is directed at both beginning and serial entrepreneurs.
Section 3. - Planning.
This section presents the various types of business planning and discusses when to use each type—if any at all.
Section 4. - Financing.
This is an ongoing consideration for every entrepreneur, no matter how small or large your business is. It is an issue that needs to be addressed early and often … this section helps guide you in the process.
Section 5. - Accounting.
I included this subject as a complete section, because it is extremely important, and one of the things most entrepreneurs ignore as long as possible—big mistake.
Section 6. - Buying a Business.
This section presents the pros and cons of buying an already operating business, and how to approach the process of searching, and then negotiating the buying of a business.
Section 7. - Family Businesses.
Family businesses differ substantially from regular businesses, and this section discusses the various ways of successfully running the family owned business—including how to avoid conflicts and feuds within the family.
Section 8. - Crisis Management.
Sometimes things do go very badly in a business and the owner is faced with a crisis—or so they think. This section helps business owners determine if they really have a crisis, and if so, how to approach solving it.
The report titles for each of the above Sections of this business solutions and resources website are listed in the Table of Contents, and on the first page of each section.
