"When the pandemic caused a nationwide shutdown, I lost my full-time job. A friend recommended Building Your Future in Self-Employment. I purchased it and read it cover to cover. Ginny emphasized that a key to small business success is to find an unmet need and fill it. Based on my strong computer skills and love for young children - plus research on my target market and competition - I started a distance learning tutoring service for children 12 and under..Thank you, Ginny, for your awesome help!
