Making and having a home business may be both overwhelming and rewarding. This type of business pays off according to the time you put into it at first. It may be difficult at first, but things should get better over time. Having a work from home business doesn’t mean easy street. All businesses need hard work to success.
You may be thinking that if people can’t afford to buy from major retailers, where will they get the money to buy from me? Major companies have major overhead. A major department store has lease obligations as well as insurance, utilities and staffing costs. A smaller business has lower overhead and therefore can offer lower prices. The digital age has reduced that overhead down to almost nothing.
For two reasons, one the cost will be significantly different and two the clients will be as well! Next, how much inventory will you need and/or require? Do you need a Building permits? Will you need additional bodies? How will payment and shipping be handled?
To find real work at home employment, you must realize that it involves work. Any company that promises payment for virtually doing nothing is probably not legit. Realistically, no one will pay you for the sake of cutting a check. Keep this in mind while searching for home based employment.
Next, pick the plants you’d like to grow. Visit your local retail nursery and see what they’re stocked up on. Talk to landscapers and other people. What are they looking to buy? Do you want to grow ornamental grasses, flowers, ground covers, trees or shrubs?
Choose a name – This is where buying a franchise also helps. The name should be cute and appealing. But it should also be well known to help get started quickly. When people are looking for somewhere to board their pets they will first look to their vets and then shop brand name pet centers.
Garage sales are a way to sell plants right out of your home, especially if your state doesn’t allow retail sales from your backyard nursery. Many do allow garage sales. Just be specific in your ads so people don’t show up looking for baseball cards or old computers.
