I currently live in Western Kentucky and am looking to start up my own business in Western KY, Southern IL, or around the St. Louis MO area. I've between $30,000 - $50,000 dollars cash on hand and the potential to raise up to $150,000 from friends and family if I have a solid business plan. I've a degree in Finance and am 80% through with my MBA. Since August of 2004 I've been working as a Financial Analyst, Business Analyst, Project Manager and Executive Assistant to the CEO and COO of a small education company. For several reasons I believe that I will be leaving current job in the next six months to year.
I've a wealth of general business information but no real niche. I'm either looking to partner up with someone who has the technical skills to complement my business skills or else I would like to go into business for myself. What would you do in my situation? Thanks!
