Title: Big bucks not always needed for new business

Abstract

Monthly Economic Diversity column for Tri-City Herald (first 2 paragraphs pasted below): I think many of us at one time or another has at least wondered what self-employment would be like. Amidst romantic visions about easygoing schedules and the reduced pressure of not having to answer to someone else, the daydreaming eventually gives way to reality. What would my value proposition be? Where would I start? And would that secret trust fund indeed be revealed to me at the right moment to make it possible? Since for most of us that last question is little more than a pipe dream, the money dilemma is top of mind when it comes to the proposition of starting a business from scratch. But it doesn't have to dig to the bottom of your wallet or your net worth as was recently affirmed in a great Wall Street Journal article about starting successful companies on a shoestring budget.
