a Business Idea
Would you love to start your
own home business, but just simply have no idea what kind of business
you should start? Many moms find themselves in this position, or they
are just so overwhelmed with all different businesses that they don't
know which one to choose.
First off, when you have some
time to yourself, sit down with a pen and a pad of paper and start brainstorming.
Write down all the different home based businesses that sound interesting
or intriguing to you. Even if it initially sounds crazy, write it down
anyway. Some of the best businesses started out as someone's crazy idea
Then look at your list carefully.
Go through them in your head and choose the ones you think would be the
best for you - for whatever reason.
Next, consider the ones that
made the cut. Write each business on a separate piece of paper, then write
down all the pros and cons for that business. And if you have any brilliant
ideas or plans about any of the businesses, write them down too.
Then, leave your list for a
day or two. When you go back to it, usually one of the ideas will jump
out at you as being the one. It is that one that you should then
go and fully research, to make sure that it is one that you can successfully
run (both financially and logistically).
Be sure you file away everything
from you brainstorming session in a safe place for future reference. You
never know if it will come in handy one day!
