I heard Jean Chatsky on her Oprah & Friends XM Radio station the other morning talking about how stressed out we all are these days about our money - whether we have it or we don't have it.   Money problems are often related to legal problems - whether you're dealing with a collections and creditors, or trying to collect on a debt yourself!  Money challenges run the gamut of our lives...

One of the suggestions on Jean Chatsky's program was to start a side business to earn needed extra money.  If you are looking for ways to add some extra income to your current salary and are thinking of starting a small business (or if you've simply always wanted to start your own venture), here are a few resources to help you get started:
