If you are starting a business or are simply in the business of running your life, here’s some advice for you: “Don’t wait to turn your business idea into a reality.”
That advice comes from Pete Ord, founder of client onboarding software company GuideCX. His recent article in the Daily Herald, “How Bootstrapping Can Help Get Your Business Idea Off the Ground,” shares how to start a business basically from scratch.

As you start early, research and prioritize, figure out how much you can afford and do what you can with what you have, you’re well on your way to confidently making that big purchase.
