Improve your business (or get it off the ground)

Are you starting your own business?  Want to improve on the one you already have? Or maybe you want to expand your business to the next level. Either way, you will need some advice, mentoring, and encouragement along the way. I have found a few resources have proven very helpful to me.

Small business Association- this is a wealth of information for small businesses and freelancers alike. Freelancing 911 also offers priceless information to freelancers as well. Also, it is a good idea to get involved in groups in your area for small businesses.
the switchboards offer a wealth of information in their forums.
As far as social media,  bloggingtips and freelancereview offer some great information. Lastly there is always the  secret to success. For reals!
I hope some of you found this info helpful. I will share what I can with you, and you can let me know about some helpful information too!

Blue Skies Ahead

 I am new to the blogging thing, but I catch on quick, so WATCH OUT! (lol)

My Name- I came up with this after looking through my moleskine notebook from my college capstone project. I thought it was lost until a few weeks ago. I had a creative burst that I recorded in that journal and I flipped out when I could not find it. I was journaling constantly, and any idea that came to mind during that year was in one of 2 books. I am sure glad I found that one! I went to school for graphic design, and I have my BA. I do design parttime, but I felt I needed another outlet to get me off the computer. (I am one to make many hobbies) After looking through my recently found journal, I found it! and with the help of, ForeverFruitful was born! I sell handmade items there. Right now it is crochet/knit items and jewelry. More to come! Whew!
I decided to call the shop ForeverFruitful because I want to make my place in the world as a creative who is constantly growing and producing fruit. I want my creative ideas and endeavors  to live, and not die in the pages of old moleskine notebooks....
