I reall want to start a business from home. You see I live in a very small town where shopping is sparce. I was thinking of starting from home at first a clothing shop, a dog treat or maybe a little cake/pastry shop...all from home of course.

I was working fulltime up until last year June, and now I am stuck as a homemaker.....ok I am a stay at home mommy of 2. I know it's not a bad thing but I am bored out of my mind.

Does anyone have any ideas, inspirations links or ANYTHING that might help guide me?

Check your state laws if you decide to make and sell any food out of your house. Some of them are pretty strict.

What about an Uptown Cheapskate? Google them and see if one is near you. If not, you could open one. It's one of my favorite stores.

If you're interested in direct sales, I'm an independent consultant for Jamberry Nails and I absolutely love it. I just started and do it mostly for fun but I average $100/month without in home parties. We have some great incentives to join this month. If intetested in more info, email me at jamminjamberryATgmailDOTcom

I say go with your passion. If you love to bake than do a pastry shop, if you love pets do the dogge treats

You might start by getting a reseller's license.  Just think about what you love to do, what interests you.  If you find something you really like, it won't feel like work.

I found some cool things for advertising my business at vistaprint.com ... business cards, signs and banners, car magnets, and all sorts of fun things. They always have different free promotions, where all you pay for is shipping.

Whenever I get a business idea, I go in there and mess around making business card designs and see what it looks like. I'm weird like that :)

Also, you can make free websites at a few places. I have mine through webs.com - I thinik it helps when you advertise to put a link to a website.
