Looking for a Home Business?

by Mary Emma Allen on July 27th, 2007

You’re fed up with your regular job…or you need to earn some extra money, so you’re considering a home business.  What should you do?  Where should you start>

Do you have a hobby or special talent you can develop into a business?  When our daughter was small, I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, but we needed some extra income beyond what my husband was making.

My writing career was in the beginning stages in the days before computers and Internet.  But I could sew!  I’d been making my clothes, my mom’s and sister’s since I was a pre-teen and in 4-H.  So I started getting the word out that I would do dressmaking and alterations.  This eventually evolved into a quiltmaking business when someone requested I make a quilt from my dressmaking scraps.  Then I began writing about quiltmaking and quilt businesses, similar to what I do at Quilting and Patchwork.

But you don’t sew.  Look to other talents you have

You still need ideas?

Here’s a list of 25 possibilities I discovered at Entrepreneur.com, in an article by Carla Goodman, 25 Part-Time Business Ideas.  You may find something here that sounds interesting and decide to explore the possibilities further.
