Today was spent at Jewish National Hospital down in Denver. Mom had an MRI scheduled as well as visits with two doctors. Everything went well and we'll hear the results of the MRI of her heart next Friday when we drive back down to meet with her cardiologist.
While I sat in the waiting room, I took advantage of the time away from my computer by reading Down to Business: The First 10 Steps to Entrepreneurship for Women. This book provides very practical advice for every step of the start-up, written by Clara Villarosa, who started and ran a very successful business when she was laid off from a high profile bank job at the age of 52. The nuts and bolts of business start-up are interspersed with stories of real women who created businesses both small and large.
While I don't currently have a specific idea that would provide the impetus to start my own business, it's something I'm extremely motivated to try, if I could conceive of a viable business. So, why not be prepared, just in case?
