You will learn how to choose a niche of investigation and how to start thinking in the abstract, questioning everything but recognizing facts for what they are.

You will learn how to hire contractors to help you and which licenses and liability insurance you will need. You will learn which contracts and forms, including privacy agreements, you must have on hand and which business structure is best for you.
