Do you dream of working at home? Starting your own home-based business can help you lead the life you desire and today it‘s easier than ever. There are many benefits of working from home: setting your own schedule, being there for your children, avoiding long commutes and being your own boss to name a few. Many people who work from home say they would never go back.
The business ideas profiled in this book can help you become one of the growing field of successful, happy people who work from home. And, these businesses can be started for very low start-up costs. They require little or no overhead since you’ll be working from your home. Most of these businesses can be started part-time, and pretty quickly.
All these businesses can be home-based. That means you will not need a separate rented office or store-front for any of these business ideas. As your business grows, you may eventually decide to rent office space outside your home, but it’s not necessary. Many people run hugely successful businesses from their homes and would never dream of having an outside location. For start-ups, working from home can save you lots of money. The money you would spend to rent space can be used to market and grow your business. Plus, it can make your business profitable in a much shorter period of time.
Home-based does not necessarily mean home-bound, however. You will find plenty of opportunities for getting out and interacting, with clients, prospects, industry connections and more. For many of these businesses, you run your business at home, but work ‘on location” at a client’s home or business. For others, you both run your business and do the work at your own home.
The beauty in running your own business is that you can pick a business that works for you, fits your lifestyle and helps you achieve your life goals. The businesses profiled in this book were chosen with that in mind.
In this book, you will find information on how to choose a business that fits you by doing a few simple exercises to discover what motivates you, what skills you have that are marketable, and how to pick a business that combines those things.
You will also find information on how to get your business up and running, including information on the basic start –up necessities as well as how to get a business license and a business checking account.

Home Party Businesses (dozens of things you can sell via home parties)
