How To Run Your Business From Home

Aug 17, 2007
Working from home is everyones dream, after all who would not want to forego the daily commute during rush hours and instead run a business from home? Here are some ideas how to go about it without also running up your credit cards, running out of patience or simply spinning your wheels.

Running a business from home takes time and dedication. You need to have the time to work on whatever it is you choose to do without interruption. You need to have the dedication to the business to set business hours. If you have children in the home, this may require some finagling but with a bit of finesse, you should be able to come up with a workable plan and schedule. Try to set your time for doing business when the children are at school or at a play date. Dont try to squeeze in a little business before dinner or while the kids are brushing their teeth. Business time belongs to the business and family time belongs to your kids. The two should not mix.
Find a home business which will interest you and which will fit into your life style. For example, if your passions are dogs, find something you can do that involves your canine friends. Marketing bird seed will not satisfy half as much as selling dog food. Do not compromise your interests!

Market your business from home by building a professional looking website, amending your email signature to point people to your new endeavor and by coming up with creative new ways of showing folks in your neighborhood what you are doing.
Get your family involved into your new passion by assigning your children little tasks and perhaps getting your spouse to help out as well.

Networking with other businesses in your area is a great idea to really become successful in your own business. For example, if you are selling a certain brand of dog food, let the local pet groomer know what you are doing and maybe she would refer clients to you if you offered them a discount on the product and also promised to refer your clients to the groomers.

As you can quite easily see, running a business from home can be a lot of fun and it can become a goldmine if you go about it the right way. If it is just another thing that you try to fit into an already packed schedule, the odds are unfortunately against you. So go ahead and invest your time, energy and a reasonable amount of start up capital into a venture that you love and that you foresee loving for a long time and the money will soon follow.
