Do you really want to know how to find the answers to these questions? Sure you do.

By the time you finish reading this page you'll have access to information dealing with such issues as:

Understanding what you'll need to know about starting a business
Getting the information you need
Getting the money you need

Learn what successful people in business know about getting the information and money needed for real success. 1st - Know this - There's no such thing as a "get rich quick" business. Or a successful business that runs itself. Forget the hype. It just ain't so.

As you think about Starting a Business, you'll first need to learn all you can about what they are, how they work and what you'll need to do to be successful.

Fortunately today, because starting a business has become so prosperous and popular, there's a great deal of information about how to get started.

Whatever business you choose, you're going to need help.

Help with information. And, depending on your finances and what kind of business you choose, help with financing.

Many businesses today, such as network marketing and Web sites on the Internet, require little or no setup costs. So finance won't be a major issue for you. (Franchises are a different story ...)

But know this - Any and every business venture, in order to be really successful, will require a good deal of your time and energy.

How much time and energy will be decided by the type of business you choose. As well as just how successful you really desire the business to be.

And the first place you desire to direct your time and energy is researching.

Information and ideas Do you know anyone who has already Started a Business? They can be a very valuable resource.

They can tell you:

How they found out about their company/business
How they got started
How much money it cost, (really)
How long it took them to make the kind of money they desired
How much time it takes day-to-day to be successful, (really)

They'll also have "hands-on" experiences to share with you.

Then there are places where you'll be able to find all you desire to know about starting a business.

Read all about it Begin with your local newspaper -

You can learn a great deal about what's happening in the business world from the classified ads section of your newspaper. These ads will tell you about the latest trends as well as what products and services are in demand.

Then there's your local library -

It will supply you with the latest magazines, books and videos about the business world, successful businesses and people who have known success starting a business.

And now there's the Internet -

If you have a personal computer, you can spend hours finding all kinds of information on the Internet. Or - You can let Workplace Moxie do it for you.

There are many Web sites, (not quite like Workplace Moxie of course...), with information and ideas about starting a business. There are also public discussion boards, groups and forums where you can ask questions and get good answers quickly.

If you don't have a personal computer, go back to your library where you'll be able to use one of theirs.

These two resources alone will give you some great ideas you can use now to succeed when you're starting a business.

Financial help One of the first things you need to do when you're looking into starting a business is to learn as much as possible about what kind of financing will be involved. Really.

Regardless which Business you choose, be sure you know up front all you can about how much money you'll need to give. Not only just to get started but also for the long-term.

Research this information. But also speak with someone who has already Started a Business. Hopefully, they'll be honest with you about up front and on going costs. Once you know this, you'll know if you'll need additional funds.

If you do need to get financing, there are reliable, (and legal), sources available.

Where to go for what you need Ideally you want whoever finances your (ad)venture to not only give you the money you need, but also be supportive and have some experience in your chosen industry/field.

There are always your friends and/or family. Who, if they're able and willing, usually have the best return payment terms around ... In fact, it's possible they'll agree to make it an investment.

But - this can cost you a great deal more than just money in the long run ... So you need to think about going outside of your circle of friends and family.

If you're in good standing with your own bank, try them first. After all, they already know you and have a record of your banking habits. Which can prove to be very helpful when it comes to working out how much money, when it will have to be paid back and the interest rate.

If this isn't your best avenue, speak with your local Small Business Administration, (SBA), about getting a loan. The SBA has loan programs, as well as management counseling and training services.

A guaranteed loan from the SBA can let you to keep your ownership interests intact. Until you get to a time and place that you can think about selling shares or taking on other business partners.

This brings us to another avenue/approach to financing a business.

Succeeding together Most really successful businesses are made up of more than just one product, service, line, etc.

This, in the business world, is known as diversifying. 'Not putting all your eggs in one basket so to speak.

So many businesses have "joint ventures" and partnership programs of every kind.

The Resources gained by joining with other people already in business can fill any "gaps" you have in your own finances for starting a business.

So always be on the lookout for other businesses and people with whom you can join efforts and share success and profit.

Do your home work. Research companies, businesses and people in your industry/field. And even those who aren't. You never know - Another type of product or service can open up your market. Remember - diversify.

(Go to the page Diversifying in this, starting a business, section to learn more about how important Diversifying really is.)

Then there's the avenue of finding a private financier. This is a person who will give you money for your business - under certain conditions.

Find the financing you need.

But beware -

On the up side, there are some really good, but not well known places to get a loan.

On the down side, there are many poorly organized and run, (and downright bad), places that will give you a loan, but you'll end up paying far more than what you borrowed.

Bottom line ... You can know the great success and satisfaction you desire and deserve when starting a business. If - You Acquire the Needed Resources.
