How to Start a Photo Mug Business for Fun and ProfitWritten by Randy Wilson
With a photo mug business you can provide personalized services to people and make money. You have seen people with pictures of their children, or grandchildren on their coffee mugs, and have thought it was a neat idea. That neat idea could be your next career.
The best way to start a photo mug business is to purchase a franchise or license. Though purchase price can be several thousands of dollars, it gives you all equipment you will need, as well as training, support and guidelines for advertising. If you are having trouble financing your photo mug business, consider creating a business plan. This plan will not only help you get financing, it will help you ensure you have all correct licenses, insurance and adhere to all local, state, and federal regulations for your business. This is extremely important because you donít want to be penalized by a government agency or shut down because you do not comply with laws.
Complete photo mug business plan and budget. This will let you know whether you are purchasing a franchise, license, building your business from ground up, how much money you will need to get your venture started, and whether you are going to rent store space, a kiosk in local mall, or have a virtual store on internet. You will need to put a copy of all licenses and insurance in your business plan as well. Remember this document is living, and needs to be reviewed annually and changes made as necessary.
With your business plan ready, create a proposal explaining photo mug business venture. Show these documents to private investors, banks, and Small Business Administration. Do not get discouraged if no one wants to help, just reevaluate your proposal and business plan and try again. But chances are you will not need financing and if you do it should be for less then $10,000.
If you have decided not to purchase a franchise or license, you will probably need financing and business plan is best way to finance your photo mug business. You will have a lot of equipment to purchase and will probably have a period of time within first year where you encounter a trial and error of all services. Expect and plan for this in business plan and you will more than likely get financing you will need.
Yes, There Are Opportunities For Christian Work from Home BusinessesWritten by Randy Wilson
There are specific Christian work from home businesses around, with more opening up every day, although some would argue that any business can be a Christian one. Before you make any decisions though, ask yourself a few questions such as:
- What are my talents and skills?
- Is my goal to have a new full-time business or to add to my existing salary?
- How will having a Christian work from home business affect my family?
- Am I looking to help others through my business?
- What quality of life do I really want?
- Whatís necessary to achieve that quality of life?
These questions are just to get you thinking about what your true purpose is in pursuing Christian work at home opportunities. Without an idea of what your goal really is, you canít achieve it.
You especially need to consider your own special skills and abilities. For instance, if you love kids and are good with them, you might consider starting a Christian daycare center for them in your home.
Focusing on what your talents and skills are will keep you from going into any Christian work from home businesses that youíre truly not interested in or good at, and help you choose what you will be successful at doing.
Maybe you love to write. There are many opportunities for Christian work from home businesses in desktop publishing area. You can produce programs, brochures, tracts, church histories, and directories for churches in your area.
