Tory Johnson, frequent reporter on ABC’s Good Morning America show and anchor of the ABC NewsNow series focusing on careers asked for a little StartupNation love recently. One of her faithful fans, Natalie, of ChicSweets, asked for ideas about how to move her business forward on a variety of levels, especially in the transition from part-time to full-time.

Click on the image below to learn Natalie’s challenges and my recommendations.

As I say at the end of the interview, Natalie’s really on the right track here. She has a day job and has started ChicSweets part-time, ramping it up slowly but surely with little risk so she can gracefully step away from her day job when everything is ship-shape with ChicSweets and not a moment before.

Note also that I got a great tip/idea from fellow StartupNation member Carli Kiene of Inked Fingers Photography to help Natalie drum up business in the wedding planning arena. Thanks Carli!!!
