11) Bonus most home base businesses have a very low cost to entry. You can get started with very little money ,000 or less. You want to find a company that has a proven repeatable system, a step by step plan for you to follow, proven systems and process with a great support team to make sure you are successful.
Below is a quick step-by-step guide to writing your own financial plan. Of course, a professional financial planner may be able to give you a more comprehensive financial plan but this will be a good step forward in understanding your needs and clearing some stumbling blocks.

You have to be rational enough to assess your current situation, creative enough to see what is possible, and have the integrity to follow through with the plan. Remember, just because it’s on paper doesn’t mean it will happen – you have to decide to follow through and live up to your goals.
As a result I now take a look at what’s happening with me and my business any time I get offended! The learning that has come from it has been life changing.
Why not jump on the bandwagon like so many others have done before you? A home based business where you are only responsible for yourself and to have no restrictions like bells or timetables or bosses has to be the best possible lifestyle. Make 2009 your year. Any age any person can do this. If you are 15 or 70 you can still make your fortune. It just requires patience and a never ending supply of faith in you and your own abilities. Don’t rely on others, become self-sufficient and you will reap the rewards. I guarantee it.
