Grow Your Homebased Business

.even if you're going it alone.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

We asked some successful homebased business owners to share their best advice. Here's what they had to say:

  • Be a good neighbor. Make sure your neighbors know what you're doing and that it won't impact them negatively.
  • Word hard to balance home and work. This is hard for all entrepreneurs, but it's particularly difficult if you work and live in the same place.
  • Be patient. There are few true overnight successes. Make a plan, and stick with it.
  • Go that extra mile. Finding customers can be harder if you're homebased. So make sure you please the ones you have each and every time.
  • Finally, get out of the house! Meet your friends or former colleagues for lunch. Join a group or association, or form an informal advisory board.
