Are you planning to stop working for someone and be your own boss? Know that timing is everything in business, which is why you shouldn’t start a company whenever you feel like it.

With the cloud evolving and business apps developing faster than the eye can blink, now is the perfect time to launch a startup. With all the modern technologies that you can use, your company can be on the forefront of things. What’s even better is that computers, hardware and software are relatively cheap.

Now that you have the information, it’s time to put them to good use. Is today the day you become the boss?
