How to Profit from Creative Home BusinessesWritten by Randy Wilson
Continued from page 1
If you love to paint, get your paintings to a local art gallery that focuses on local artists. Your creative home business can get a turbo charge this way. Good art galleries are always on lookout for fresh, new talent and are willing to have shows where you can sell your paintings. Another idea for selling your paintings (that not a lot of artists think of!) is through interior decorators. They, too, are always looking for unique art for their clientsí homes and apartments. So arrange to show some of them your work and youíll likely make several sales immediately.
Now that you hopefully have your own creative business idea, here are a few things you need to consider:
- What supplies and/or equipment do I need?
- Should I hire an accountant?
- Do I have space I need in my home?
- Does my area/state require me to get a business license?
- How do I prepare for tax time?
- Is there a market for my items?
- Whatís my competition doing?
- How do I advertise?
After youíve done needed research, write out a business plan. And then follow it. You canít make a wedding gown without a pattern or plan. You canít build a business without one either. But with a good business plan, effort, determination, and patience, you CAN have successful creative home business youíve always dreamed of having.

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Signing a Partnership ContractWritten by Charles Fuchs
Continued from page 1
Do you have a common vision? Where your home based business is concerned, two of you need to have same goals and beliefs about what your home based business is about, where you want it to go, and how you want it to get there. Agreeing on these fundamentals can make or break a home based business. While differences of opinion are always going to occur and can even be good in that they may open your eyes to new, better ways of doing things, agreement on fundamentals is vital to ensuring your home based business will succeed. What skills and abilities will person bring to your home based business? This should be a lot more than just wanting to have a home based business, just like you do. And itís usually better when partner has a totally different skills and talents than you have. If both of you are only interested and capable of doing exact, same tasks, then your home based business will not be a well-rounded one. This can also cause jealousy down road when one of you, perhaps, gets more recognition than other. Good home based business partners have abilities that complement each otherómuch like they do in a good marriage!
