Re: Considering the WAHM world...

I'm trying my hand at freelance writing as well as trying to selling things on eBay, and (hopefully) babysitting another child part-time in order to become a WAHM.

I tried to start an accessories business and it was REALLY hard and really did not make any money upfront but did require initial investment. Ultimately, I was not able to sustain it without money to put back into the business and while working full-time outside the home.

My advice is to do both local selling and online selling. Set your price at the rates that you will want them to be. Research the cost of similar products and price your stuff in that range. Don't short change yourself! You don't want to get people in with low prices and then jack up the rates - that could cost you business! Research craft fairs and homeschool fairs in your area. Network with moms you know and let them know what products you offer. Network with local schools and preschools letting them know what you offer.
