There may be a better place for me to post this question. But I was just wondering if anyone knew of good part-time home based businesses that weren't scams. Please include startup costs if any. Anyone know where to find businesses/info like this?thanksPart of the reason scammers can get away with so much, is because people like you (no offense intended) think that a business idea has to be something that is plopped into their lap.Do you think that Bill Gates got his idea for starting microsoft by ordering materials about "starting a home business"?My point is, a business isn't like a job, it isn't something you can shop around for. If someone is publishing about how to get started in a certain business, most likely there is not much money in that business, or they would be doing that instead of publishing "educational" materials about starting said business.Look around you, what are you good at, what do you like to do. Now, what do you like to do that people might want to pay you to do. Once you find that, there is your "home based" business. If you are good at it, it shouldn't stay "home based" for long, as you expand and grow and make more money at it.In all, stay away from anything posted in a "business opportunities" context in classifieds or online. Some of them are legit, but the ones that are, generally don't have much room for growth, no matter how much they claim they do.Try to do something novel, try to find an unserved market, a niche that needs to be filled. Stay away from competing with established businesses at all costs, unless you know you can blow them away by doing something that they can't.
