About Us

It’s hard to be fully creative without structure and constraint. Try to paint without a canvas. Creativity and freedom are two sides of the same coin. I like the best of both worlds. Want freedom? Get organized. Want to get organized? Get creative.

David Allen, author of “Getting Things Done”

GoAboutBusiness.com is a “meta-business” site – meaning, it’s about the “business of doing business”. The assumption is that GAB readers have a wide varitey of entreprenurial traits – a big idea, great artistic ability, superior technical proficiency, etc. – that drive them to solo entrepreneurship. But, all these readers share the need to master the fundamentals of small businesses to fully prosper. They need to know how to balance their books, schedule their clients, maintain a web presence, organize their paperwork, understand social networking – all while being the BEST “whatever” (attorney, accountant, artist, code guru, etc.) they can be.

Try this analogy…

If you’re a jazz musician, GoAboutBusiness.com CANNOT teach you a single note. That’s your skill, your passion, your particular and unique genius. But maybe we can show you how to get organized, put up a website, book a gig or two – adding the foundation of business fundamentals to take what you love and make it a successful small business.

Thanks for visiting.
