You have enjoyed the hobby of jewelry making for a few months or for a few years and have made gifts for family and friends. There has been a change in your personal thinking because you see your lifestyle taking a turn allowing you more freedom to move on to the next step…a home based business.
You have a dream of being able to use your creative jewelry making talents and becoming a fashion jewelry designer or any other type of jewelry designer. You feel it in your gut you just do not have direction at this time.
The one thing that you know for sure is that you love jewelry making and hunger to learn more and more. You have discovered that your creative ideas are exploding and your notebook is filling with many ideas and drawings of different jewelry projects you would like to make.
As you look about your work table and wall space there is plenty of stock to operate a home based business. You have heard many good comments from friends and family members encouraging you to go into business. Their loving support and your ambition for a lifestyle change has given you the boost to start a home based business.
Your jewelry making is fun. It releases your creative energy, and you get much personal fulfillment from your jewelry designs. The next step is to learn how to market and sell your jewelry line.
Business fears that you may have:
Can you operate a business?
Upstart finances are not as problematic as your imagination would lead you to think. New expenses would include your business licenses and correspondence, e.g. business cards, brochures, posters, advertising, etc. Start with the minimum amount of business supplies and increase as needed.
Your larger expenses which are a part of your ongoing budget will be jewelry supplies or essential jewelry equipment.. And you probably have the essential jewelry equipment. The largest consistent overhead expense is a storefront. Working out of your home will eliminate that expense.
Business knowledge will be acquired at your learning pace as you market and sell your jewelry. Starting your business from the home will allow you the time to learn business practices as your business grows.
Let me ask you, have you had experiences working as an employee, managing your household expenses or raising children? You can be certain that you are well equipped to operate a home based business.
