Hi Ann810, I started a home business (handmade chocolates) 5 years back, at a very miniscule way. When I started it, I was not sure if it would last or become profitable or even accepted. Second year, I almost decided to wound it up. But my mind told me to stick on for another year and I listened to it. Third year, people started knowing about my company and media attention was also received and today, me and my company have gained enough attention and popularity, people from neighbouring districts come for buying my chocolates. Even today, it is not run in a big way. I do it at home. But I am happy and contented that it is running profitable and people around know me because of this work.
I would strongly suggest everyone venturing into home business to stick on to it for the first three years irrespective of whether it is profitable or not. Also my advice is not to invest too much into it that you risk your life for it. Just believe in yourself and you can do it!
