Having at least 2-3 good home based business ideas to choose from is a great way to make sure that you will be starting a business that will work for you. If you can think of a way to provide a product or service from your home that will help others either fill a need or solve a problem then you have a great business opportunity idea to start with.

The good thing is that it does not need to be a completely new or original idea for it to allow you to create a successful and profitable business from it. In most cases a business becomes very successful by being able to do something a little better or a little faster than their competitors.

The key to finding the best home based business ideas for you, is to make a list of things that you enjoy doing and then do some research to find out the following 3 things :

1.) If there is enough demand for that idea ? This is where you may need to do a good bit of market research or testing if your idea is completely new and different.

2.) Is there enough profit potential ? would it allow you to make enough income to meet your needs ? and

3.) How could you get the training or guidance to become successful at it. – By learning from others you will have a blueprint or a map to follow and for most people it is far easier to reach a distant destination when you have a map to use that can guide you in the right direction.
