A lot of people have been asking me how I’ve been able to afford to start my own business. The truth is, other than a few digital expenses (web-hosting, email hosting, various professional social media tools, etc.) my expenses have been relatively low. My biggest expense thus far has been my time, i.e. the time it has taken me to train myself and design my business from the ground up.
One of my biggest advantages is that I can save money by running a completely paperless business. I’m fortunate enough to have a few advantages over many mature companies (see my last post ), but many of these new technologies can be easily adapted to any business. Over the next few days I will share with you some of the new business technologies I have been using to save money, time and mother earth.
