    Hi Max!
    You should give Mara Mentor a try! You can find great and experienced mentors here and you won't even have to pay anything. It's a great platform for amateurs like you and me to connect to professionals in the industry. This is an online tool as well as in the form of an app. That enables me to get advice even on the go!
    I recommend Mara Mentor to you. You should definitely visit the site at

    Hello Max,

    The key to starting a business is having an understanding of a business model. One tool that I recommend to aspiring and current small business owners is a handbook called IM Revolution by Matt Lloyd. Even though this is geared more for internet marketers, the information and business model provided can be applied to any small business.

    The handbook is only $9.95. Feel free to visit my page and download a copy at This model has helped me to enhance my business and I'm sure you will find it beneficial to you as well.
