|Every home business has to start somewhere|
It all starts with you and what you know, what you like and what you're passionate about. Maybe it's crafting where you physically make something cool with your talents and want to sell them offline (flea markets, consignment) or online through eBay or from your own site.
Or maybe it's an affiliate program closely tied to your current web site content where for instance you might have a "pet" related web site and can sell pet related goodies via an affiliate company, direct from the supplier, or maybe you just want the simpleness of running Google ads on your site?
Well here on my wimpy little blog there's just no way for me to cover it all but I wanted to at least get you thinking about it.. that IS the first step. Now that it's in your head (such power I wield) I recommend you take the next step which is research. Just remember with a home business you can do it part time on your schedule, without spending money on advertising and who knows... yea, it could even be your full time job "income generating" home business if you work at it.
Recommended and useful links:
~ eBay for auctions of course, Etsy for buying and selling the cool stuff you make and Google adsense to place income earning ads on your web site or blog.
~ Learn about affiliate marketing from an old (I say that respectfully of course) affiliate webmaster at Affiliate Company List. Yes, the Whitney Lotto Magic story is there too, fine, you got me. :-)
~ One of my favorite online home business resources is called Home Business Magazine
~ You probably have already been to "About" where they have a home business section to get you headed in the right direction with your new home business as far as getting started, planning, management & more.
OK, now get out there, do your research, find your home business niche and get busy. You need that new car, college funds to build and don't forget about retirement... it'll be here before you can say "Ahhh crap, I should have listened to that blogger guy all those years ago!
