Of course, we do accept other submissions that fall into these categories yet don’t address these specific topics–we just want to throw these out there to give people a sense of the types of pieces that we’re looking for.
AT THIS TIME, WE DO NOT NEED: Pieces on the emotional aspects of starting a business–believing in yourself, dealing with difficult days or difficult clients, how business is like life, etc.
