Introduction to The Home-Based Business Kit From Hobby to Profit
This book is a culmination of the experiences of many people. Both authors are small business owners who began with home-based businesses. Additionally, we have assisted many clients, friends, and family members in starting their own home businesses.
For us, the enjoyment has been watching a business grow from the first glimmer of an idea to a money-making career.
The purpose of this book is to assist the readers from the initial thought of wanting to start a home-based business, to deciding what business to start, to getting you and your family prepared. We begin with our 10 Steps to Success.
This short section identifies concepts and actions that you can consider right now. Then, we begin to help you make the decision to start a business by discussing the common reasons people start home-based businesses.
Once you have made the decision to work from home, it is time to discuss the variety of businesses that easily fit in a home-based environment.
We look at how you can accentuate the positives and reduce the negatives in each type of home-based business. If you do not know what type of business you could be good at, there are checklists and questionnaires to help determine your personal talents.
Following the discussion of the types of businesses, you must determine if your home is the right place for that business. We discuss it all—laws, neighbors, naysayers, and your family.
Steps are even suggested to keep your family and property safe while operating a business from home. Once you have decided on the type of business you want to locate in your home, this book helps you set both business and personal goals.
We provide information on how to set short-term and long-term goals that you can easily track to see how the business is doing. We give you the tools to organize your business ideas so you can clearly develop business and easily measure the progress of that business.
There are also tips on how to prioritize your business duties, and we provide time-saving ideas, so you can use your time wisely.
In addition, we give the reader tools on how to remain flexible in the direction of their business so that each success and each failure can be quickly evaluated, resolved, and used for the growth of the business.
This book assists the home-based business owner in developing a business plan that can be used in presentations for loans and for community events.
It also helps you decide how to market your home-based business. In addition, it will help you to make a budget or financial plan for the business.
Another section in the book gives you steps to start your home-based business.
We discuss the legal considerations of selecting a business form, including the positives and negatives of each type of business structure and what it means to you and your family.
We also discuss how to deal with others in your business such as lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, and other business experts. Finally, this book helps you run your home-based business on a day-to-day basis.
We give you information on how to deal with customers, how to get customers to pay your bills, and how to set a fair customer policy. We then discuss dealing with vendors, how to research a vendor, and what to do when a vendor lets you down.
In addition, for the future growth of your business, we give you information on dealing with employees, both from a legal and personal side.
If you have ever thought of opening a home-based business, this book will give you a taste of what setting up and running a business is like without ever getting out of your easy chair.
If you are planning to open a home-based business, this book will give you ideas, checklists, case studies, and places to go for even more information.
