for a Business
Deciding what your home
based business will be is crucial - you will have to eat, sleep, and
breathe it, particularly when you have to set up shop in a corner
of your living room or bedroom.
Many people are choosing
what they love - a favorite craft or hobby. But how can you decide
if your hobby will make an ideal business venture?
there a market for it?
There may already be six other soap makers in your area - can it support
makes your business unique? Is your craft or hobby something that
everyone can do? Rolled beeswax candles sold like hotcakes six years
ago, but with beeswax sheets available in every little craft supply
store, most people can make their own.
it a fad? If it is, will there be enough sustainable income after
the trend is over?
it past its prime and unlikely to make a comeback? Just because
a lot of the 60s and 70s are back "in" now, it doesn't necessarily
mean that there is a current market for macramé or velvet paintings.
If you are just unsure,
ask around, or do a search on the Internet or eBay to see if those
kinds of items are selling.
