Your small business resource for solo entrepreneurs


Hi! My name is John Reid and I’ve been running small businesses since the early 90’s. I started out doing networks and computers for people back in the Novel 2.1 days and moved to Windows NT soon thereafter. In 1998 a friend introduced me to C/C++ and I was hooked.

Since then I’ve been a freelance consultant and have helped many others to start their own businesses as well. I’ve managed to form a few corporations for side projects for myself and helped others do the same. During a COVID 19 inspired lag in my schedule I thought I would be able to help a lot more people if I just designed a web site and posted articles and here we are. (You can read a more detailed origin story about me and this site here.) I’m sure this site will evolve and I hope you’ll benefit from this journey we take together!
