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.
