    My luck has changed finally! I did end up losing subsidy but it turned out to be a good thing! I decided to try to open my own housekeeping business and right away one the the richest families in my area has asked me to work for them full time! I'll be cleaning 2 huge mansions and 2 businesses and making a mint! I also found a sitter for $20/day for both kids (not each like most people charge!). YAY! I am so excited! Also a little nervous, I don't know anything about running my own business. Any pointers from those who do?

    Thanks!
    Melissa

    Congratulations, Melissa! Sounds like you have a very good start. My only advise would be to check on what kinds of taxes you might have to pay. That's something you don't want to get behind on.

    Congratulations! In the states we have an organization called the Small Business Administration. They help you in every aspect of your business. That may be something for you to look into. Good Luck!

    Yeah, that is 'really good' advice. That's who I would go to and they will know everything that needs to be known about your area.

    PS- congrats!

    Congrats, best of luck to you. Don't have much advise for you cause i'm not sure how things run in canada, but just make sure you don't take on too much.

    Melissa - I can tell you how to keep your books if you are interested, I am sure the majority would be the same.
