Article Body:
The Internet is filled to the brim with articles that talk about the
best, the most useful, and of course the utterly creative home base
business ideas possible. While each and everyone who is trying to succeed
online will do well to read up on these items and follow sage advice as
well as common sense, there are some ideas that may work for some people,
but for others they will turn disastrous. In a very real way, they are
the worst home base business idea anyone could have.

To ensure your success with your home base business idea and to help you
discern whether it is a good idea or perhaps not such a good idea, here
is a list of don’ts that you will do well to heed:

1. The worst home base business idea possible is to sell something or do
something you neither enjoy nor believe in. For example, if you are
considering the business of selling personal protection plans for the
legal field, you need to believe in the product. If you think that it is
an over prized service that most folks do not really need, you will be
wasting your time and those of your clients – who, by the way, will be
able to tell if you are just putting in your time in order to make a sale
or if you passionately believe in the product. Similarly, if you hate
sales calls, then this is decidedly the wrong home business to try out.

2. Any home base business idea is a bad idea if you lack the financing
required to adequately get it off the ground and instead contemplate
risky and potentially disastrous personal financial moves. Taking out a
second mortgage on your home, dipping into your retirement savings, and
maxing out your credit cards are examples of risky financial moves that
will cause you years, or decades, of grief and the risk of failure far
outweighs the chance of success. For every success story that talks about
the down and out mom of five who used her last dime and kid’s college
fund to get her now multi million dollar business off the ground, there
are at least 100 such moms who will have lost that last dime and
children’s college fund and have absolutely nothing to show for it.
3. If your latest home base business idea is little more than the flavor
of the month and you have already tried out so many and wasted a lot of
time and resources on succeeding with a home base business, you might
find that until you are certain of what you really want to do, any idea
will be bad. Fortunately, there is a plethora of personality tests online
that you can take to find out what you would enjoy doing and what you are
good at. Also, take the time to talk to your friends and family – the
ones who know you best and will tell you the truth even if it hurts – to
find out what they can see you do. You might be surprised!

Last but not least, any home base business idea that takes away the
little time you have for your children, your family, your local faith
community, and your enjoyment of life is one idea that is bad and should
not be followed. Your children will be small only once; your family needs
you now; your spirituality is more important than anything else, and your
enjoyment of life dictates your wellbeing. Do not jeopardize any of them
by following a fleeting notion of quick success only to turn around a few
years later to realize that you missed out on a lot more than you can
ever hope to gain back.
