I'm specifically interested in different businesses, not the norm. Can you tell me about what you do and how much money you invested in it?

There is a big difference between buying a franchise and doing direct sales. I'm not sure a lot of the women on this website know the difference, honestly.
I really don't have any experience in franchising. We started our business from scratch. There are pros and cons to both franchising and starting your own business from the ground up.
I own a business networking and support group here on Cafemom called Mommy Movers & Shakers. You're welcome to join if you want. We post a lot of business articles you might find helpful.

I am in the process of buying a home-based business. I had my interview yesterday with the owner of the company. Once I sign the contract and pay $125, I will be a part of the My Smart Hands company. I will be teaching sign language to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, teachers, parents, etc.
