Businesses for mothers By Lori Bratz TheMommyNetwork.com

Everyone excels at something that could be turned into a business offering; especially mothers. Mothers have to be hard-working, organized, patient, adept at settling disputes, and able to multi task, sometimes under a good deal of pressure. Perfect qualifications for a CEO! If you’re like most people, you have dreamed of owning your own business. The good news is that your dream is certainly within reach.

The main rule of thumb? Do everything legally. If you’re seriously planning to start a business, get online and find your state state department of licensing web site. www.sba.gov/hotlist/license.html.

Be responsible.

Get a license to do business. It only costs a few dollars to get licensed.

Pay your taxes. If your business is doing so well that you have huge income tax, then congratulations! You’re a success!

Here’s a list of several business ideas that you can do from home. You can probably add more great ideas to the list if you’re willing to put in some time and creative thinking!
