Question by jdecorse25: Google Base?
When a website says that they syndicate to Google Base, where exactly can you see your product? For example, I've uploaded a home to Postlets.com and they say they get it up on Google Base, but I can't find it anywhere on Google.

Question by Luis: Is it good to base a business on a small-business model?
So I'm thinking about making a business plan using small business as the model, instead of big business. My thinking being that there's plenty of big business, and the market is over-saturated with chains and watered down versions of the original business. I think there's a type of fatigue over big business, and that the market will shift to smaller business, with better customer service and so forth.
All the stuff I've read seems to be pushing me to base my business on a big-business model, streamlined and efficient and the most profits.
So is it a good idea to base my model on a small business, or should I give in to the literature and assume that it's right? Does the literature guarantee more success?
Thanks for your thoughts.
I should say that I mean starting a business as a small business and keeping it that way, no growth, no megacorp, just keeping it based on a small business model throughout.
Everything in the literature says to go big or go home, but the market tells me otherwise, so that's what I'm trying to figure out.
Answer by ptkopp
I run numerous small businesses and the first thing to base your business model on is "What do you want to do?" Make the business work for you and your lifestyle. You shouldn't be a slave to the business. Most business models suggest worrying about the money first and then the business owner and their life and family second.
That is why so many businesses fail. I wrote an article called Life Plan First then Business Plan. It might give you a different perspective then the standard business model.
Skip the literature and find out what works best for you first.
