Are you one home business opportunity seeker among the millions of people seeking
a means to start a profitable business? If you are then you have reason to be optimistic!
Today you can begin a business with less than $100, while as little as 10 years ago
$10,000 would have been insufficient. But you might be asking "Sure, if it's really
that simple, how come everyone isn't starting a home business?"
There's no one answer to this question, but the most common is that not everyone
knows how to go about it. The "how-to" is the factor that makes the difference
between the "wish" and the success. For this reason, not every home business
opportunity seeker is able to go into a business that earns enough income so that they
can comfortably quit their job. There are some critical ingredients that need to be
mixed into your micro or small business recipe, before you can assure the right
1. Type of business
A critical factor is that you have an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses
prior to deciding what type of business you would prefer to go into to make this extra
money. Begin by making lists of those things you do well, and then list those things
that you are passionate about.
Choose your business from these two lists. As an example, let us suppose that your

talent to an online business as well. You could design a website and offer an online
2. Capital you need to invest
As a novice home business opportunity seeker you would definitely seek the business
that requires the lowest investment of capital. As we've already stated, it's entirely
possible in today's world to find a business opportunity to your liking with a
minimum investment. Launch your business on the Internet. Seek out sales leads that
you can use on the Net.
This business doesn't have to be the same one of your choice, but could be the means
to achieving your ultimate goals. You can use this secondary online business to fund
your business of choice. Most "dot com" business can be started with less than $100.
Some examples - affiliate businesses, selling e-books, freelance writing, freelancing
in general, and so on.
3. Effort needed
As a home business opportunity seeker you may experience time limitations and not
be able to give full attention to running your business. You might have a full-time job,
or could be a busy consultant who needs to make some extra money. Therefore, plan
your business realistically so you will avoid disappointment if your business doesn't
take off right away. You will need the necessary energy to invest in the launching of
4. Break-even point
No matter what your business, the idea is to earn income. Take into account the effort,
time, and funding it will take you to reach that particular milestone where you earn as
much as you need out of this business.
5. Part-time or full-time
Another factor in whether or not you will be successful as a home business
opportunity seeker. Will this be a full time business, or part-time? The time, effort and
funds you spend on the business will very much depend upon this factor.
