I will be running two lines of business. First, and easiest to start-up, is daily money management. ... The other line of business, that I hope to eventually have as my core business, is financial planning.

I commend you on your reseach and your choice of fields. They both appear to have low start-up costs, may have some client overlap (something I've always found profitable is cross-selling), and the fields are similar enough that building a solid reputation in one should benefit the other.

I've seen so many women who become self-employed without really examining what they want, why they're doing it, and where to begin that I am very impressed with how much you have already discovered and decided upon. Good for you! It sounds like you've already developed one strong networking relationship and have a reasonable plan for developing more. And you've already got your first client lined up, to boot!

If my radar (i.e. "gut") is any indication, you will do well. Good luck!
