How to build up your business [more]…

Pouring over some how to build your business articles.  Some verge on repetitive, but there are many different points of view.  Some take aways …

  • The know your audience and what they value is a pretty big first step, one article said that you should know the way to reach whomever you want and that in the metropolitan regions, there are social groups that organize around just about everything.
