With any journey there are a few things I need to do before heading out, like knowing where I am going and what to take with me.
First I need to decide where I am going. In other words I need a business plan. Being a former middle school math teacher I'm not quite sure what that means. Thankfully there are plenty of websites to help me work that out.
Making A Living from Genealogy
You Want to Start a Genealogy Business
How to Write a Small Business Plan
Second I need to pack a few things to take with me. This list seems to get longer and longer. My first item though is education. I have signed up to take classes on line to not only further my knowledge in better genealogy research skills but also in becoming a better business woman. Another thing I have packed is memberships to several Genealogy Societies and Research Websites such as
The National Genealogical Society
These are just a few. It can get kind of expensive but remember the old saying "you have to spend money to make money" These membership fees and dues are an investment to better myself as a genealogist.
This is just the beginning. I hope you follow me as I share my adventure. If you sign up by email in the top right hand corner of this blog you will be notified by email each time I submit a new post.
Hope to see you in the comments section.
Until next time, happy hunting.
