Friends say you have a green thumb. Not the Jolly Green Giant kind, but you are a great
gardener. Ever thought about starting a landscaping business? Or growing exotic house plants?

Perhaps sewing is your hobby. You could specialize in tailoring. Or sewing outfits for children.
Sewing designer curtains, cushions.

same tasks you perform everyday for your family or employer could be turned into a very
profitable home-based business venture.

my family the last several years." Wrong! You have a very marketable skill. Why not start a
"Home Based Cleaning Service." This is a business that is very easy to start out of the home.
