The actual checklist is 32 pages long, and takes you to hundreds of business tool and resources you need to start and operate your business.

In addition, you get 400+ pages of helpful business and computing information in the 6 e-books I've written.

Here's a picture of the entire startup guide if you print it and place it in a 3 ring binder.




Do you see how you follow the step by step guide and then click on the links to visit the web sites that offer the services you need? How cool is that?

Then, every tme you add a new service or make a change to your business operations, you can take just a few moments to write down the information about your business in your checklist, and it is there for you whenever you need it.

Isn't that good to know? You may forget a password, or where you registered your domain name, or who hosts your web site, or information about your credit cards or when and who to pay, but from here on out, it will never take you more than a few seconds to find the information!

So, you'll never "Lose" a tax ID, password, vendor phone number, or even the phone number of the company where you ordered your business cards, checks or supplies, or even details about your advertising campaign. It's written down in one easy to find place, because you're using the one tool that helps you track all information about your new business.

Just open the drawer on your desk, pull out the checklist, and there it is!

Anyone use this business checklist for any business.
