How can 4 freelancers/entrepreuners buy affordable liability insurance?

Three friends and I teamed up to rent a small commercial office space to use as a shared office, as we've tired of working at home or in coffee shops. We've signed the lease and moved in. I've been tasked with finding liability insurance, but having trouble as the insurance companies don't know what to make of us. I'm hoping Mefites may have creative solutions. [more inside]

Who/what has inspired you to have more passion and better work ethic?

I'm looking for inspirational stories of people with a vision they're passionate about, and the work ethic to accomplish what they set out to. Tales that make you come away thinking "Yes, that is how I want to be living my life" and charge you up for the work you're doing. They don't have to be people you'd generally admire or seek to emulate - whatever their goals, it's that spark/drive/dedication/grit I'm most interested in. [more inside]

"I prefer the term 'entrepreneur.'" Give me stories about entrepreneurialism.

I've finished watching the HBO series "How to Make It in America." Any other shows, movies, books, fiction or nonfiction, like it? You can interpret that pretty broadly, but, basically, one or two guys (or girls) trying to "make it" (in the big city, or not) by tackling something that's kind of out of their league, which is to create a business from scratch.

AudioMagazine

Is anyone doing audiobooks for magazine and web articles? If not, why not? I wouldn't mind being able to hear a Malcolm Gladwell article read to me while I am on my commute or on a run. Are there any services that offer this? I haven't been able to find any, and I am wondering why. Copyright? No market? If I wanted to start a audiobook company what are my obstacles?

Blogs by business-owning parents?

Can you recommend well-written blogs/sites of parents who run their own businesses? There are a TON of results on Google and I just can't sift through them all, so I thought I'd ask here. Blogs by parents who have very young children are great and ones that have very young children AND a full-time day job while trying to start their own business up would be excellent. [more inside]

Broke but ambitious in Barcelona.

I've just finished business school and have landed myself an internship at a very respectable multinational company in Barcelona, Spain. The internship is great, the salary dreadful. So, I'm now in a position where I can barely afford to live and need to find something else to suppliment my income. Can someone give me an idea of what formalities I need to address in order to sell food in the streets of Barcelona? [more inside]
