If you are planning on beginning a business, your best bet
is to start out part-time while you are still earning a full-time
income at your present job.
If you are like most people who are existing from payday to payday,
you don't have a lot of money to invest in a full-time business.
No need to worry! Just use your favorite hobby as your business
base and grow from there!
There's no telling where you'll be at 2 or 3 years down the road.
Perhaps you can even tell your present boss to "take that job
and shove it." Wouldn't that be great?
Using your present hobby or favorite pastime as your business
base has many benefits. Why? Because ANY business you decide
to become involved in should be doing something you LOVE,
something you believe in, something that you would work at
NO MATTER what income it would generate.
This will give you the stamina to see your business through the
beginning hard times and times when there is more work to do
than you can handle. We all know the feeling of doing a job
that we hate to do.
With jobs we dislike there is no way we can give it 110% of our
abilities because we procrastinate getting through it and just
want to get it over with. That's why it is vitally important to
dearly love the product or service you have chosen to build your
Do you like cooking? Start a recipe newsletter for others who like
the same thing and sell your recipes by publishing a simple booklet.
Do you enjoy making crafts? Sell them online. (be sure and mark up
the price for shipping and handling).
Do you enjoy writing? Write a small booklet or how-to manual and sell
it as an ebook. Do you enjoy computer programming? Write a program and
sell through shareware groups or even thru your own affiliate program.
Just about anything you love doing can be magically transformed
into a business opportunity for you. Start educating yourself
by reading and researching other home-based businesses.
Businesses that claim to put you in business overnight should never
demand a large amount of money from you. On the contrary, legitimate
businesses have nothing to hide and should invite you to learn
the "whole" story behind their claims.
Another good move on your part is to invest a little time in online
business forums. Many are free, and the valuable information you
obtain from actual people who are in business is something that
will be extremely valuable to your education.
Yes - it's that easy! Of course, this is only the beginning.
As with any hobby, it will take time to realize a profit but
think of it this way: Most people that have a hobby know they
have to spend money to take part in their hobby. It only makes
sense to invest money in advertising your hobby to others so you
can eventually make some of that money back in sales for your own business!
