Engage your friends!

If you’re wanting to start a business, or needing some marketing inspiration, don’t forget to tap into that vital resource….friends!

You may be surprised what insight, ideas or inspiration they can provide – all for the cost of a glass of wine.

AskBronny is a great little fashion advice site that has kicked off by relying on friends to provide everything from design, to articles to bloggers (like mine on dressing “Buxom Babes” like myself!). This will eventually morph into a viable web advertising businesses model, and will be able to pay some contributors – but it already looks amazing and professional all because “Bronny” has tapped into her friend’s passion for fashion.

So next time you’re lamenting over lack of budget, start cruising your personal address book!
