    I have an idea of whats wrong with it (keep in mind this is my first website, I downloaded the template and have been editing it with dream weaver)

    1)I need a 'box' that I can write a few paragraphs in (with the same style as the other boxes ex: tan with the bluish background) that goes above the menu and goes the entire length of the banner

    2) Under advanatages in sole prop/LLC I need the background to match the background under advanatages in PARTNERSHIP - for some reason I cant get it to work

    3) add bullets to the 'disadvantage' section of llc/sole prop/partnership


    Anything else you bros notice?

    I have not implemented
    different languages
    links at bottom (tos/privacy/legal)
    FAQ (no one has asked me any questions)
    contact us

    Thanks for any advice :noes:

    Doesn't look too bad. Pretty good for your first site, actually.

    Looks pretty good for a first design, I like the colors.

    I recommend you come up with some kind of logo, or at least add "Business Life Now" into the banner or something so your name is up there.

    I'm not sure if I've ever seen a center navigation like that, it is interesting, could work I suppose. It is unnatural for the Home link to be anywhere but on the top of the menu though, I had trouble finding it.

    i'd also make the logo clickable to return back to the homepage.

    lots of people tend to click up there

    That thing in the middle looks like a sidebar that was just placed in the middle of the page. Looks really weird.

    Yeah, the whole center nav thing really isn't working. Users tend to look to the left for navigation.

    If you can make the center menu stretch all the way down (same height as the other boxes).

    Sorry, did it in photoshop -- you'd need to play with the height of the center nav to make it proper. to get you started: style="height:500px;"

    center navigation is completely out of place. i have never in my life seen a navigation there, and it will throw off your users.

    people like consistency.
