I was at a board meeting yesterday for my University’s Center for Entrepreneurship. We discussed at length the real possibility that Michigan is going to see 17% or more unemployment rate over the next 12 months.
The thought is that there are going to literally be hundreds of thousands of people looking for work, OR HAVING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE A LIVING FOR THEMSELVES!
i BELIEVE STRONGLY that most people have it inside themselves to operate a successful small business. What they need is for someone to guide them through the aspects of business ownership that seem tough or mysterious…for example; setting up an LLC, getting a tax id number, state and local taxes, employment practices, obtaining a loan, etc.
For the past 10 years I’ve been going through the business start-up process over and over again, and with much success. I could probably get something going in my sleep. That being said, I’m putting it out there that for all you “Almost Millionaires” who are looking to get a business started, I’m here to help!
If you have a specific question about starting a business in Michigan, or anywhere in the US for that matter, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with your question. I’ll do my best to answer it in a post, or we can dialog via e-mail. I’m hoping I can offer some free advice (becuase it is always worth what you pay for it) that will make a difference if someones life! And I’m hoping to fuel the entrepreneurial spirit that is waiting to be unleashed here in Michigan!
