If you are not already
in a business and wish to go it alone all the way, there are several
general areas that must be executed, but there is no rule book that
fits all situations. The general areas are: financing; inventing or developing; any of patenting, copyrighting, or trademarking; manufacturing or outsourcing, and marketing (or selling). Beyond these, there is the vitally important function of partner selection and staffing effectively. See menu to the left.
