are your own boss. You choose how much work is done when. And it is so easy to
procrastinate to do other things. It is vital that you put the time in needed to get what
you need to get done, done. One way you could do it, is by deciding how many hours you are
going to spend a day working and no matter what time you choose to spend it you make that
quota for that day.

and control your spending. One of the main problems, with a home business is that there is
not always consistent influx of cash. So you are gonna have to learn how manage potential
dry spells. You want to prepare yourself to ride out any storm.
Get organized. Find out about the legal ramifications of your business. (Is it more
taxes, or tax breaks) Organize the area in the home where you are planning to operate your
business. (Is it a noisy environment?) Make sure that the environment you choose as the
hub of operations is somewhere that you feel comfortable.
Also very important make sure the other occupants of the home respect your space and
respect the required silence. Making crafts takes an artistic process, if your business
depends on craft, you are going to have to allow yourself the space and calming
environment to do so.
Think about who will sell your stuff to. You need to think abound exactly who your
target customers are. Is it young women or men, children, old ladies, retired veterans,
mothers? Who are you going to sell to, and how much money do these people have anyway?
When you think about who you're gonna reach for, you can let that guide your pricing.

disciplined and motivated. Always take time to draw up a plan and practice good money
management and you should be alright.
