a Business Idea
Would you love to start
your own home business, but just simply have no idea what kind of
business you should start? Many moms find themselves in this position,
or they are just so overwhelmed with all different businesses that
they don't know which one to choose.
First off, when you have
some time to yourself, sit down with a pen and a pad of paper and
start brainstorming. Write down all the different home based businesses
that sound interesting or intriguing to you. Even if it initially
sounds crazy, write it down anyway. Some of the best businesses started
out as someone's crazy idea first.
Then look at your list
carefully. Go through them in your head and choose the ones you think
would be the best for you - for whatever reason.
Next, consider the ones
that made the cut. Write each business on a separate piece of paper,
then write down all the pros and cons for that business. And if you
have any brilliant ideas or plans about any of the businesses, write
them down too.
Then, leave your list for
a day or two. When you go back to it, usually one of the ideas will
jump out at you as being the one. It is that one that you should
then go and fully research, to make sure that it is one that you can
successfully run (both financially and logistically).
Be sure you file away everything
from you brainstorming session in a safe place for future reference.
You never know if it will come in handy one day!
