Interesting article. I'd like to run my own business, and I've thought about a consulting job. Ideally, I'd like to buy a business instead of starting one from scratch. I've been looking for one to buy, but I haven't had much luck. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

@Monica, Have you looked into small business groups in your area? They should be able to help you and direct you to the right people. Or maybe even consulting organizations?

Also, check out, which is an online global marketplace where you can invest in, buy, and sell a business. There's a wide selection to choose from, so you should be able to find what you're looking for. You can also find a lender or find a broker, if you need either. Check it out and good luck!

If you're going to start your own company, you have to respect your roots. Nobody's going to hire someone who has a reputation of being a disrespectful employee. And once your business is up, you have to promote it, right? You have to have clients, just as you've said. I'd make a website and do a little basic SEO on it. My friends over at Jacksonville, Florida have taught me that.

Anyway, my point is that you should respect where you've come from so that you can have clients for your new company.

Sometimes, we need to leave or let go something for the improvement and growth of our career. It's not easy, but it brings greater opportunity to us. Most of us dream to be the boss of our own a business. Since you have experiences from your previous work, you may apply those to your next career or your own business venture.
