The National Institute for Genealogical Studies has a new course entitled Business Skills: Creating a Genealogy Business. Written by genealogist and author Jennifer Holik , this course is for anyone who is thinking of taking their genealogy research to the next level.

Creating a genealogical business requires many steps. First, there is self-analysis to determine who you are, what you want, how to achieve balance in work and personal life, and what kind of business you wish to start. Next comes the business planning, market analysis, marketing planning and overall business structure to establish. Finally, considerations of things you need for the business from supplies, income, marketing opportunities, and a productivity tool chest will help round out your plans and get you off on the right footing. In Creating a Business, you will learn the skills you need to accomplish all these things and spend a lot of time thinking about the ins and outs of business.
