Default Advice And Tips When Starting Your Home Based Business

A quick read on having a home business.

"First off, you need to come to grips with reality...be realistic in your expectations. Far too many folks read advertisements that are hype and imply quick money, and lots of it, from a home-based business start-up. It will certainly take a year, and in some cases it may take up to three years, before you begin to truly make a significant profit from your business."

Catch it @ http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/ar...ed/007875.html

What advice can you share with those wanting to start their own home business?

Very well written and informative. You listed several important points to be considered when you are thinking of starting any kind of business.

I really wonder how people can just jump in to these "getting rich in a day" schemes without thinking that it's realistically not easy to reap profit within a short time span. It takes planning, capital, investments, and such.

It was a great read, by the way, Linda!

My number one tip for anyone working at home is .

Be organised and self disciplined.

Check sites which will help you with your online business.

The first two steps:
1) Do the preparation - Deciding how to package your product and who to outsource the work to.
2) develop your product - Turning your idea from concept to a product!

The list don't stop there.
