It takes a lot of time to successfully market and promote a new business. Starting out a new business with expectation of earning a full time income from a part time effort is not very realistic and is likely to lead to disappointment.
If you are planning on starting a home-based business with intention of spending a great deal of time with young children or caring for a sick or elderly family member, a full-time home business (and income) may not be a realistic objective from a time availability standpoint. Try to reconcile your income expectations with amount of time that you have available to devote to starting your home business.
You can expect to experience periods of doubt in early stages of developing your business...did I pick a viable business opportunity?...am I doing right things to develop my business?...when will I start making a profit?, and so on.
A person working at a home based business may also experience occasional periods of feeling isolated...a feeling which is probably brought on by lack of interaction with a work force or office environment.
Whatever type of home based business that you choose to start, you can rest assured that there will be some bumps in road leading to your success. You should expect to experience "two steps forward and one step backward" thing and try to avoid ever-looming temptation to become overly discouraged when you take one of those backward steps. It is very easy to lose sight of obvious fact that as long as you have more steps forward than backward you will eventually get ahead!
