Almost 40 tips for Starting an Architecture Firm

After obtaining my license as an Architect in New York, I brainstormed several long term goals and decided to start a personal blog, develop design projects, and learn everything that I could about starting an architecture firm. So I purchased several inspiring books written by life coaches, architects, and business professionals. As I read each book, my mind began wandering off in so many directions and many of my fears of the unknown were beginning to fade. Then, an opportunity came up with the local American Institute of Architects in Buffalo’s emerging professionals committee (AIA Buffalo/WNY EP) to put together a proposal for a grant from the college of fellows. We decided to submit our proposal for an

                                In 2016, Newcastle-based artist <a href="http://www.jimmyturrell.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Jimmy Turrell</a> spotted a job-lot of 1,000 books on eBay and bought them on a whim.
