Fun Story About A Tie Tying Home Business

by Mary Emma Allen on December 8th, 2007

Family businesses operated from home take on many aspects.  This is a fun story about the Christiansen family in Utah, who have developed a web site with instructions on how to tie a tie along with ties you can purchase.

This story, at PowerHomeBiz.com, A Real Family Home Business:  Utah Family With Knot Problems Creates a Website All about Neckties and How to Tie Them.  The Christiansens, with five boys who needed to know how to tie their ties, developed this business to help instruct others with the same challenge.  From there, the business evolved.

This goes along with the old saying, “Find a need and fill it.”

Perhaps you can find your own niche, something you had a need to learn, and develop a business instructing others.  Creativity  leads to invention and invention to business to income!

    That is an inspiring story for anyone who wants to start a home business but thinks their idea is too “lame.” This proves that any idea fueled with passion can and does work.

    Isn’t is interesting, Bridget, that many ideas for successful businesses evolve from those “lame” ones, as you refer to them? They often are the ideas that flitted through someone else’s mind, but were discarded. Then they realize, “If only I’d gone ahead with my idea!”
    Thanks for visiting Home Biz Notes and commenting, Bridget.
