GenBiz Solutions™: Starting a Genealogy Business
by Thomas MacEntee, High-Definition Genealogy
When I seek advice about important life events like, say, starting my own genealogy business, I prefer that the counsel I receive be honest and straightforward. This is the first thing that struck me about this Guide. I’m told right off the bat that starting my own business won’t be easy, but it can be incredibly rewarding. It’s scary, but completely do-able, as long as you have a plan.
I have known for a long time that I wanted a career in genealogy, eventually starting my own genealogy business. In this 5-page guide, Thomas leaves no stone unturned when attempting to answer all the questions someone in my position might have … from the “just thinking” stage to marketing your new business to keeping your business afloat once it’s launched. There are many (MANY) considerations that Thomas mentions that never even occurred to me regarding financing, budgeting, and professional development.
What had the most impact on me, however, was that nothing in this guide said “you can’t.” In fact, not only did it say “you can,” but also said “… and here are all the different ways you can!” Thomas made sure to include ways to maintain boundaries and take care of ourselves throughout the entire process – because, honestly, if we don’t take care of ourselves, we’re no good to anyone else.
The entire last page of the guide provides links to helpful tools and resources for each step of your entrepreneurial journey.
Now that I have a better idea of what to expect, I have a renewed motivation to keep pushing toward my goal.
