How To Start A Work At Home Business-Are You Interested?

Start your at home business

Hello and welcome to my site. How to start a work at home business? You must be interested in this since you are here right?

Starting a work at home business isn’t very hard. You just need to do some research. What is it you want to do -what service do you wish to provide.

Are you wanting to work for someone else, or are you wanting to be your own boss? Have your own at home business? This is an important question you need to have the answer to before even starting your search for your business.

For this post, we are going to be looking at a business that will be yours. An online business you will do from home, or actually from anywhere.

Not All business will work by doing them at home. The next steps will help you determine what you want as your business and if it will work doing it from home.

Who Are You? What Are You About?

Who are you? What are you about. This will help you figure out which type of business you will want to start. Are you a social butterfly, or a little on the shy side? Are you comfortable on the phone. Do you love to write?

Starting a work at home business means you can do a variety of different jobs. You can make your own soap and sell it, sell Avon, make and sell candles, dog sit or walk dogs.

Sewing, knitting, crocheting can also be turned into a business. You love to do it, so why not earn money while doing it right?

Are you good with numbers, or English, maybe you speak multiple languages? You want to list anything that you are interested in. Can you turn it into a business?

Start with your passions. How can you inc operate that into a business. Maybe even something you are very talented at. Can that be your business?

Who, what, where, when and why. Answering these questions will help you to answer almost any situation you may be facing. Just not necessarily, in that order.

Make sure you do research on the type of job you are thinking of offering. Are there others around providing the same services, what is being said about their service, how did they get started? Research every detail that would pertain to your business.

Who What Where When And Why

Can I Do This From Home?

We can narrow down your list down by going through and crossing off those that will not work by doing them from home.

Will this business cause a lot of traffic to come in an out of your home? Living in a residential area might cause some concern for your neighbors if they are seeing different people go in and out of your home.

I would cross anything you have that would involve clients coming to your home off the list. I don’t mean one or two clients, but larger number of clients coming and going wouldn’t certainly raise neighbors curiosity.

If you have any type of business manager position on your list, I would cross that off as well, except a virtual manager position. Managers are normally wanted to be on site, unless it is a virtual manager.

A business that requires you to be on the phone constantly, do you have a baby or a very loud four legged family member? These are the things you want to consider.

Will I Profit From This?

We are going to look at this from a MONEY stand point. This is a process many at home business skip, and then they regret it, because they end in failure.

If selling a product-how much will others pay for this product? How long does it take to make this product and will you be able to make a large quantity if it is a hit?

If you are choosing a business that you will be working from home but will depend on a company who will be paying you for your service, what will they pay you? Will it depend on your performance or is it a straight hourly pay or salary?

Checking out the competition will be beneficial as well. If you have 5 other business promoting the same product, you might have to have a BETTER brand of product or better advertising skills.

No matter what type of business you will have, you want to make sure it will be a profitable one. You may have to try something else if you don’t think it will be.

If you are thinking about taking out a loan to get this business started, you will definitely want to make a business plan. You don’t want to take out a loan for a business that is doomed to fail.

Business Success Chart

Only 50% of new businesses make it through their first 5 years. Only 1/3 make it to their 10 year anniversary. Beyond that, the chances stay the same. The longer a business last, the better the chances of it continuing to last are (kind of the same as marriage).

Set Up Your Plan Of Action

How are you going to make this happen? What do you need to do to make this happen? This will depend on what type of business you will be setting up.

You will want to keep a check list of everything you will need. While researching, write down what other businesses like yours need. If it is something you don’t already have, add it to your list.

Knowing what you will need is very important. Do you have the tools for the trade ex.seamstress, do you have all the different needles, thread and material you might need.

Will you need a tax code, a business license. Maybe you need to check with your locality about permits. Register your trade name. These are all if necessary.

Your plan of action will be based on the type of business you are creating. No matter the type, I am sure you will need some type of computer or laptop and a phone and a website. You can build a website in 30 by clicking here. Don’t worry no credit/debit card or billing info needed.
If you are planning on using your cell phone for everything, you will want to make sure it can support all the apps needed to maintain your business needs.

Plan Of Action

Execution-Put Your Plan Into Action

Hopefully by now you know everything you will need to get this business to be more than a vision in your head. Let’s get to making it a reality now.

When you made the calls to find out if you needed a business license, tax I D and so forth, if you weren’t able to take care of everything then, now is the time to do so. Maybe you had to come up with a little money. But now you are ready.

Be sure you have gone over the check list you made earlier of everything you need, and be sure you have it all. Check it and check again in case you have missed or forgotten something.

Once you have it all set up, I would suggest running over some Worse Case Scenarios,so that you are somewhat prepared for the unexpected. Just in case. This way you are a little more prepared. Once again, this will depend on your type of business.

Take another walk through, is there anything you can think of that might complicate your startup? When doing the research, did anything pop up that others may have had issues with?

Open For Business

Time To Open The Doors

At this point you know what type of business you are starting, what service you will provide and how you are going to do it.

You have done your research on what you will need, material, equipment, licenses, tax ID or any other certifications needed (if necessary).

Have you got your date to open? Are you ready to go live? If you are working from home for someone else, do you have your start date.

You should be ready and excited to open up your business now. How does it feel knowing that you have done what was needed and made it to this day?

You should have your website up and letting customers know how and where to find you and exactly what service you will provide them as well as the cost.

What? You didn’t set up a website? How are you getting the word out? How are customers going to find you or your product?

It’s Ok, We’ve Got This.

Since you need a website, I can take you to where you can set one up. Or even better, if you made it through all these steps and weren’t able to come up with a business idea that you thought would work, I have you covered as well.

Yes, that’s right. I am going to give you free access to a place where you can set up your website. Don’t think you have the skills to do that? Oh I think you do.

Not only will you be taught how to set up a website, but you will also learn how to make this website a profitable one (for those who came to the end with no idea for a business).

You will have free access to the tools to build your website, as well as support and even better, you will have 24/7 support and a community that thrives on helping others succeed.

All you need to do is take action by clicking below. No billing information will be required. Before I give you this awesome deal, I want you to promise me you will come back and tell me how much you loved (or hated, which I don’t see that happening) it.

I am a family oriented mother and love being involved with my little ones. My husband is the best guy a girl could ask for. I love helping others which is why I created this site. I know what it is like to NEED to work and earn an income, but not be able to do it outside the home. I am now able to help others find work they can do from home. And I love it.


  1. Hi, I’m so glad I found this post.

    Since quite some time I’m thinking of starting my own business. By reading your post it sounds quite easy and you really encourage me.

    The advice of having my own website is interesting as well, I totally forgot about this tool. I think I’ll just start with this first.

    Thanks again, have a great day, Stefan 🙂

    • Stefan,
      Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
      I am really glad you found it encouraging and to be beneficial in getting your online business started.
      So many think it is to hard or go about it the wrong way, and end up quitting.
      Your speaking of forgetting about this tool, I believe you are referring to building a website.
      Many of us also think that is harder than it actually is as well.
      I hope to see you again so that you can let me know what you thought about the platform I introduced you to in the post.

    • I am truly sorry that I didn’t get this out in time.

  2. Hi Lee Ann,
    It was great to read your post. You have set it out so well.I believe better luck with site rubix than the cube. Think working from home the best option now that traffic so heavy and petrol so expensive. Much better to be home working.

    • Thank you Jill for reading my post and for your comment.
      I am glad you enjoyed it.
      There are many reasons why we look for work to do at home. Traffic and gas prices are just a couple of reasons. Let alone the convenience .
      We also have many opportunities to start an at home business, they just have to be researched and you have to put time into coming up with the right business.
      I wish you the best of luck in your business venture.
      Lee Ann
