I just want to make an important note before starting: you should know that there isn't just one right or wrong answer for any of the proceeding questions.
Here are a few questions I think you should answer before you consider starting a home business:
Can you recover if the home business you decide to use fails?
In other words, is the amount of money you put in the business too much for you to handle? Or can you recover if there happens to be lost? Take your time answering this one--it's critical.
Do you have patience?
The home business market usually has you spending money before you make any... you simply can't expect to get rich over night. You have to continue to work hard to make it all work.
Are you an organized person?
You are going to have to gather emails, receipts, and other important information you may need to refer to again somewhere down the line. Practice your organizational skills.
Why do you want to start a home business instead of looking for a regular 9-to-5?
Is money your only incentive, or are you seeking things like freedom and more fun?
How much free time do you have available?
You are going to need some time to set up your home business. This can't be done in ten or twenty minutes.
Don't worry, once you set up you are able to work at a slower pace(as opposed to when you're setting everything up in the beginning).
What is your idea of an ideal salary?
Be reasonable here, but think big at the same time. This can be a major incentive when starting a home business.
Is your current job good? Would you mind working there for another few years? Or would you do anything to jump ship right away? Answers will vary.
Do you know who your potential customers are?
If you are starting a home business, you should know whom you are trying to reach with your business. For example, during a WWE broadcast, you might see more video game advertisements than normal because the majority of people watching these telecasts are boys to young men--raving lady fans might beg to differ.
Are you willing to learn? Are you willing to improvise?
The home business market moves at a hectic paste. You must continually learn what's new and how you can improve your business and earn the most money possible.
If you think you have legitimate answers to the preceding basic questions, then you are absolutely ready for a home business.
