Have you ever dreamed of running a successful business with the luxury of starting it from home? 55 Surefire Homebased Businesses You Can Start for Under $5,000 by Entrepreneur Press and Cheryl Kimball is a great resource to start exploring inexpensive home based business opportunities.
The first chapter explains the reality of setting up a home based business, but after that, each chapter describes a different idea for a business. Did you have success selling your old collection of Beanie Babies online? Perhaps becoming an eBay Assistant is in your future! There is a whole chapter dedicated to just that. Other chapters explain how to start businesses related to wedding planning, pet sitting, becoming a tax preparer, gift basket services, freelance graphic designing, home energy auditing and more! Each chapter includes specific information describing each business venture including: how you will be spending your day, marketing angles to consider, what you will need to start, and expansion ideas.
