After this, designate a home based business space in your house—and make sure everyone knows space is off-limits for anything else. When choosing room or place for your home office, consider equipment you’ll need and any storage room you’ll have to have for your home based business. If you’re going to need a great deal of storage space for your products, you may want to consider renting space in a warehouse or storage facility.
Finally, purchase your equipment for your home based business. You’ll want a computer, desk and chair of course, but don’t forget other important equipment your home based business may require. For instance, do you need special tools to make your product? What sort of filing system is best? Is there any special software you need to purchase? Do you need a postage meter or mail scale? What about phones? Special shipping items? Make a list of everything, down to pens and legal pads, you’ll absolutely have to have. This will ensure you stay focused on essentials when making your purchases.
And don’t try to buy everything you want for your home based business at first. Leave unessential items until a later time so you can spend more on what you really need. When making your purchases, don’t forget you can often get great used and refurbished office and business equipment for your home based business. Just make sure it’s in good working condition before you buy—the last thing you want is to have your home based business equipment spend more time in shop being fixed than it does in your home office.
