Empire Building Kit – Week 4 Review

I’ve been charting my progress with the Empire Building Kit on a weekly basis.  Yesterday was the last day of the 4th week in the program…only 48 more weeks to go!

The week’s highlights –

Along with looking at some very interesting case studies of other “emperors” creating and living a lifestyle business, I was intrigued by the examples of small business owners who found ways to test drive their new product in the marketplace in a risk-free manner, i.e. without investing loads of money and time before they knew if the product would fly or not.  I also found it enlightening to read the “Small Biz Disasters” – honest descriptions of things that went horribly wrong and missteps that small business owners discovered they shouldn’t have taken.

Where do I stand after a full month of Empire-Building?
