Starting a Home Business?

December 6, 2005

I was wondering if you knew of a home based business that is legit. I do not want to put my money in a bad investment but I really want something that I can do that I can spend more time with my son.


Thank you!
Barbara from Louisville, KY

I know you'll get a lot of nice replies, so take your time looking them over to determine what would work for you.

The business I have from home is with Watkins (known for their vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, other spices and extracts, dessert mixes, salves, liniments, household cleaners, etc.) When I was a child growing up my mother and grandmother purchased products from the "Watkins Man", the door-to-door Watkins salesman that would come by. Consequently, when I was looking online for something to do from home and came across Watkins, I knew it would be a good fit for me. The Watkins Company has been in business since 1868, and they have a wonderful reputation for quality and integrity.

If you would like to read about this particular home business, please feel free to visit my web site at htt:// If you would like me to mail you a catalog or other information, I'd be happy to do that.

I'm glad you're wanting to spend more time with your son; I think that's great!

I am thinking of starting a home business and would like some ideas. I make homemade candy, cookies, and I make baskets. I'm just trying to find that niche but can't seem to do it. I have a lot of wine bottles I am also saving as someone gave me one that was made into a light and I thought it clever and thought maybe that was an idea. So I just want a little help. Please and thank you.

If you start a home based food business, contact the state because I think most places that do food prep have to have health inspections and meet certain qualifications. Also if your state has a sales tax you will need a sales tax license. If you have a home based business, if you plan on people coming to your home to place orders and pick things up, you have to make sure there is enough parking spaces that they won't be blocking neighbors, or traffic.

Selling food could be financially very costly because of neccessary permits and health code rules. I love your idea for basket making and wine hurricane lamps are awesome! I've made those before to give as gifts. You can sell your wares at craft shows and flea markets and even sell them on consignment at specialty stores. Good luck in your new venture :-)

My friend saw this site on the internet and tried it, he said he made several thousand dollars and he has only been in business a month. It takes marketing he said, but if you have the time to market the product comes with a course on how to establish effective marketing for free. I think I may start it, tell me what you guys think, does it seem like something that would work, here is the site:

I want to start a popcorn, ice cream, milkshake, cakepops, candy floss, sobo drink, and hotdogs business here in Nigeria, and market it to schools. I also want to rent bouncy castles and mascots. I don't know what name to give it. I need to know how to market it to make it look interesting, and also how to write a good proposal to the schools. In short I don't know how to go about it, but I wish to start.
