Are you thinking of starting your own business? The most important thing to remember if you are considering being your own boss, is it's not a race. Do not rush the process. People who rush get penalized in the marketplace much more severely than people who take their time. It's far better to be through with research on the process.

Don’t make the mistake of assuming it is a way to get rich quick, or an escape from all problems. Starting a business is hard work, requires a lot of determination and learning, and only pays off in the long term. Take an honest look at yourself before leaping. Start by expecting to live your work until it is established so it can get off the ground.

Landscape Ontario has compiled a list of government and business websites that may help you in your research. As well, your association has a number of programs, such as Prosperity Partners that may help you achieve your goal of starting and maintaining your own business. Good luck.
