STARTING A

                      SMALL BUSINESS





       Starting a business is not something to venture into
       without thought and consideration.


       Here are a few points to consider before starting a
       business:



            9 Are you self-motivated?


            9 Are you comfortable taking risks?


            9 Are you willing to put in long hours?



            9 Does your family support your decision to start a
           business?



            9 Do you have extensive knowledge in the field you
           are going into?



            9 Do you have the financial resources to not only
           fund the start up of your business but also keep

           the business and your home running if you do not

           make a profit for 12 months?
