My own place

Thanks for the guest post by Jonathan Curtis

I knew I wanted to start my own business, but I just wasn’t sure what industry I wanted to do it in. My real passion was food, but that’s such a volatile, competitive field I figured it may be best to start somewhere else. I could start a writing firm, I reasoned, but that’s hard to market. What about real estate? That sounded like a good plan until the market fell out early last year. I finally ended up back and food and it was settled: I would start a cafĂ©. It had always been my dream to own a place of my own, so I registered my new business, found a good website at one of the registrars like Network Solutions or, and hired and attorney to help me with tax! es and such. We open in a week and I couldn’t be more excited – you guys tell everyone you know in Cincinnati to stop by the place opening weekend! If they mention this blog post I’ll give them a free cookie!
