Another note on finding customers:
Dont forget to join community organizations and be active in them. The more people see you as a part of their life, the more willing theyll be to use your services. Also, churches and religious organizations are a great way to make contacts. The types of people who go to church are varied, and you can find people from all levels of business there. Just dont make it your focus to drum up business and things may end up falling in your lap. And if you have a talent for writing, try and get some articles in a local newspaper, an internet publication, or even a trade publication. Being seen is being known.
