Is now a good time to start that new business?

Sure, starting your own business sounds challenging, but America is the best place to do it. Who are you trying to target and what product or service do you want to provide? Answer that question and your seedlings will grow into a beanstalk soon enough. (Photo: © Vlad

My friend Charlie was watching television a few Sundays ago when “the Fed” closed his bank. His job and stock were gone in an instant.

I lost my job in my mid-30s, wasting months applying to companies, finally landing a new position. I realized I’d been happiest when I was my own boss during college. So I started publishing my own neighborhood newspaper, the only thing I knew how to do.

These days, my team launches newsletters across the U.S.. Every day feels like we’re starting anew. It’s scary and exhilarating. You should try it. We’ll get you started
