If you plan to create your own product, being able to know how much it will cost you to make it is important. The usual price is the cost of creating your product, multiplied by two.

When you have a home business, it is very helpful to have a supportive peer group. You can start your own alliance or find one that exists locally. Your peers may not be in the same business but they all have a common desire and drive to run a profitable home business. If you have a location outside of the home for your business, post your business address instead of a PO box. Having a physical address gives your company more credibility. This will improve their level of trust in your commitment to serve them well, and it will build up their confidence in your responsiveness to their needs.
