Another big step - beginning a business plan


I applied for the MBA program at UIS. I was accepted conditionally until all my paperwork is in order, so I'm able to take classes. I'm doing this because I am out of other options. I've been unemployed since before Christmas, and it seems as if everyone else will be unemployed soon too.

If I get through this program I would like to start my own business. I have a special place in my heart for secular progressives, and now more than ever, they need support. I'm one of them and I often feel totally alone except for my monthly group meetings, and my friends on MySpace.

I would like to start a coffee shop / book store / meeting place / Political Action / Support Center for atheist. I already know about harassment, intimidation and job discrimination against atheists. I shall soon understand regulations and other required duties for maintaining such an organization.

Ultimately, I hope to make some friends in the process and help spread the wisdom of rational reason.
