Looking for a Home Business?
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.
