Tuesday's Tips - Turn Your Hobby into a Business

Many of today's biggest brand names were established at home - (Dorothy) Gerber, Mrs. (Debbi) Fields, and Julie Aigner-Clark (Baby Einstein), to name but a few. In fact, 52 percent of U.S. companies operate as home businesses, here are some ideas for you.Home based business

Whatever your skill - writing, web design, marketing, tax advisor, or photography- freelancing affords an enormous amount of flexibility and freedom, and can be started with little cost or paperwork. Many freelancers get their start by approaching a former employer or customer who could benefit from their services, then branch out as their body of work and reputation grows.

Freelancing does have its challenges and requires discipline-you are running a business after all. Common mistakes freelancers make include not setting the business up properly and legally (getting the right permits, or licenses), forgetting to put money aside to pay estimated taxes, and not planning for peaks and valleys in cash flow.  
Virtual assistants (VAs) provide a wide variety of "virtual" services to other businesses including administrative, marketing and technical support from a home office. VAs are growing in popularity as firms look to cut costs and outsource administrative functions. If you are organized and have an administrative background, this might be for you.  

Food production from a home is heavily regulated but it's not impossible. Take Martha Stewart, for example-she famously entered the food service business with a basement-based catering company in 1976. Before you start a home-based food business you will need to understand the rules and regulations that govern the production of food for public consumption in an at-home environment. For example do you need a separate kitchen? What about product labeling? Make sure to do your homework.
