A recent e-mail from Lauren Richardson contained the following list of on-line resources to help aspiring professional genealogists, educators and researchers establish their business on a business like basis. I think you’ll find these resources useful. I know you can recommend more such respurcess.

Lauren writes, “I especially like the one that gives average salary comparisons. Look up private investigator, technical writer, paralegal, independent consultant, and corporate trainer among others.”

¨ http://www.toolkit.cch.com CCH Business Owner’s Toolkit has information on every aspect of business.

¨http://www.sba.gov/gopher/Business-Development/Business-Initiatives-Education-Training/Marketing-Plan/market.txt Small Business Administration’s training outline for Creating a Marketing Plan
