"My regular job was not bringing in enough money and I realized I would need an additional stream of income. Due to my love of antiques I decided to try buying and selling over the internet without doing enough research; I bought some really great antique dolls but found my outlets for selling them were not promising. Then I happened onto your website and discovered your guide. My first thought was "shall I spend a little more money and see what it says?" What a surprise! The guide was more than I ever hoped for with tons of information about everything you might need to start a new business. You sure get a lot for your money."
