I've been thinking about all of those mommies and homemakers out there trying to help out with their families' budgets by making and selling products. I tried to make and market soap for a brief moment in time and decided, rather quickly, to forget that route because of a couple (or three) difficulties. I couldn't make it to farmer's markets or craft shows because we're a one car family and my hubby works weekends. Another difficulty was finding a good web host - face it, internet marketing is a huge factor in home businesses these days.

Best wishes for your home business!
