Would you like to start a business and run it from your home with minimal capital? If you do then here are the 3 essential secrets to getting started.
1) Establish what everyone else is thinking
2) Put into action what everyone else is thinking
3) If something needs doing, and people find it hard to do then do it for them.
If the above 3 secrets seem too ambiguous then think what you have to do to assimilate the information regarding what people want. You could source out lectures by existing entrepreneurs, pick the brains of successful business people or if you rather than lay out any cash there is a free alternative-the local library. Another way is to join local groups or clubs, a bit like joining the forums on here find out what people are asking for, what are there problems, can you supply the answer.
But you do need self-discipline. You cannot let family distractions hinder your money making efforts. Although having your own business means you can take time off when you like.
Here are some suggestions for starting your home business:
1. Have you a hobby?
Is there something you are interested in that can benefit other people. Many people are “concerned “about attempting anything to do with computers, especially the elderly. Take a computer course and advertise tuition once you have graduated. Many local shops have never even considered websites, offer to do one and watch the reaction when their name is actually available on the world wide web!There is free tuition available on the internet.
2. Sell anything…
…Just to get started! Scour the house and jumble sales and make use of internet auction sites. Re-invest the proceeds and buy more saleable items from wholesalers. The mail order business can be really profitable.
3. Do you like cleaning?
Many people abhor it. Offer to clean houses and offices. Look in the local paper as many firms put their contracts out to tender. Washing and ironing can also be profitable especially if you offer to pick up and deliver. Offer to do other household duties such as gardening, painting and decorating. Do it well and word of mouth soon gets round. Are you an obsessive cleaner? It can be an advantage. Aside from imposing cleanliness within your own area, other houses might need it as well. In a environment where time is of the essence, many people fail to maintain an organized environment.
Advertise your services to those people who need help. Really emphasize that when the home is healthy, life is healthy as well.
Are thoughts rushing in? From my point of view, the percent of failure depends on the time when you say “no” or ‘it’s not possible” to realizing that it is.
Is your head full of ideas? The difference between success and failure is minute. Remember patience pays off.
