As I was about to write this, I received an e-mail from a friend saying she had ventured into a scented candle making last Christmas. An Entrepreneur article inspired her to go into business because it’s so difficult to be an employee with a small salary. I am happy for her for she likes what she has been doing lately. One of the strategies she makes is to inform all her friends by sending email, and she asked for referrals too from us. She’s running a small business email marketing now. Well, I just wish she will succeed in her business. I believed running a part-time venture will give you the time you need to learn the business and the confidence to take on bigger risks once you’ve proven to yourself that, yes, you can do it.
