Start Making A ReTail Business

The newest innovative guide to a SUCCESSFUL Small Retail or Service business -

regardless of where you live!




Have you ever dreamed of owning and operating your own retail or service business?


Regardless of how many people have stopped you from accomplishing this dream, it IS possible and you CAN do it!

Many of us have a passion: for adventure, for painting, for dance, for helping the needy, for fashion, for communication, for saving the planet from early extinction...and on and on. Along with that passion often comes the dream of financial self-sufficiency by way of owning one's own business. This site via its books, workshops and mentoring program can provide you with the tools to fulfill your passion and make that dream come to fruition. We believe that every person has the ability and capability to learn and apply what it takes to not only start your own small business, but with the right attitude and motivation, to maintain and be successful at it. Our books and workshops are not about textbook-only knowledge; they are based on over 30 years of on-the-job experience and the wisdom gained in different types of businesses, large, medium and small in size, and in different countries. The goal is to help you SUCCEED - regardless of where you live, how much education you have had, or how technologically adept you may be.


We believe that the term RETAIL does not just mean selling products; RETAIL includes service and non-profit businesses as well - the basic principles are exactly the same. And, as we make our way through the 21st century, we have the benefit of the latest technological tools to help us build, grow and advance our personal wishes. The trick is in learning how to use these tools along with good old-fashioned "people skills" to develop your small business.
