After 10+ years of owning various small businesses I sold them all last year to retire to the beaches of Thailand. My previous customers ranged from young people just starting into the work force to top level CEOs. I've decided to write about my experience in hopes that it helps other small business owners.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The design of the site will be a wordpress template. Not sure if we are allowed to post the url here but if search for woo, theme, flash news you'll see the template. I plan to mod the template quite a bit based on the design of the logo.
In my blog I will talk about the lessons I learned as a business owner. The myths people tell you about small business and how they are wrong. What I learned by reading Fortune, Forbes, Inc, etc.
I also feel that sociology plays a large part in the success of a business and I will talk about what I saw in my own business as well as current trends.
Basically this blog is not going to be a, how to set up your books, how to negotiate your lease, etc, type of blog. I'm going to be talking more about general business topics. Sort of a small business owners point of view into corporate America.
Strong clean design
Some web 2.0 ok but not too glossy
Prefer to have .info but am also interested in seeing logos without it
I like the idea of a logo design followed by text.
I don't want any clip art looking logo. No dollar signs, no graphs, no stock photogrpahy of people shaking hands, talking on cell phone, etc.
And please only post your original designs. I'd hate to pay for something only to find out later that it's already trademarked to another company.
