IDEA CAFE: The Small Business Gathering Place®
Once upon a time, a long time ago (like the 1980's) it was almost impossible for an entrepreneur to get the info needed to start and run a business. Just finding what government agencies you'd have to sign up with, report to, and pay taxes to was a Sisyphean task. Today, the opposite problem confounds entrepreneurs -- there's so much info you can't even begin to digest it -- especially now with the Web. (And if you took the time to try, you wouldn't have time to run your business.)
