Hi all,I'm a normal working Joe but I've had an idea for starting up my own business on the side.I've got a lot of ideas and have worked out *some* of the details but I have no experience or education in this sort of thing.More specifically,My idea has minimal *required* start up & operating costs but various purchases will make continuing operations much simpler. I plan to fund these from income assuming my services provide that income :).Since my idea will be services rendered to people or small businesses, I'll need some sort of advertising. This I have not budgeted for and have no real ideas for what to do or how much it'll cost. My basic assumption is that I'll try word of mouth to start. Do you have any ideas?Since my idea is computer related services, I'd like to get an internet site going (for advertising purposes too). I have basic web development skills but have no experience with commercial web development.I believe that at some point, people are going to want to pay by Credit Card, but I have no experience with this sort of thing.I believe that it'd be best to separate my personal accounts from my side business accounts, do you have any suggestions?I suspect that using something like Quicken for small businesses would be beneficial.What sort of other information should I be looking for?Thanks!Jim
