How to Turn Your Talents, Experience, and Know-How into a Profitable Homebased Business That's Perfect for You!

Barnes &

FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1984, Homemade Money was quickly recognized as a classic in its field. In 2003, after being updated several times and with sales of 128,000 copies, the book was published as two editions: one offering information for beginners, the other focusing on growing a business already begun.

This companion to Bringing in the Bucks is the ultimate idea book and business generator for people who want to earn money from home. With an emphasis on how to begin with practically no money at all, this book explains how to turn existing talents, experience, and know-how into a profitable business that can be operated at or from home base.


  • An encyclopedic A-to-Z "Crash Course" in Home-Business Basics
  • Business idea charts, checklists, and brainstorming strategies
  • Outlines for business, financial, and marketing plans
  • Stimulating how-they-did-it success stories
  • Dozens of SMART TIPS and cautionary notes
  • Hundreds of Web links and other resources

NOTE: The phrase, "Homemade Money," has gained common-law trademark status through the years and may not legally be used by others.

By 2001, after my first intense year of writing for the Web and launching my own Web site, I finally understood how the Internet was dramatically changing both the home-business industry and the lives of those involved in it. Once again, I was ready to write a totally new edition of Homemade Money, but--surprise!--the publisher was no longer interested in the book.

Frankly, I was stunned by this lack of interest at a time when people were losing jobs every day for one reason or another. The failure of so many dot-com businesses in 2000, followed by the September 11 terrorist attack and the 2001 recession, convinced me and another publisher, M. Evans, that thousands of people needed a new edition of my home-business bible. Because of all the new Internet/Web-related content I now needed to add to the book, however, it was necessary to turn my old home- business bible into two new Homemade Money guides--one directed to home-business beginners, the other to established business owners needing help to grow their business and improve profitability.

In HOMEMADE MONEY: Starting Smart, you'll learn how to brainstorm and select a business that’s right for you, and how to plan your moves, price your products and services, position yourself for success and maintain control in your personal life once you've begun your business. You'll also get answers to hundreds of questions on how to legally start and operate a new business at home, whether it’s a small, part-time endeavor for extra money or a full-time entrepreneurial venture. (In fact, the important tax, legal, and financial tips in Section II of this book are likely to keep you out of a peck of trouble and save you hundreds–if not thousands–of dollars.)

After you've used this book to get your business up and running, you'll be ready for its companion business management and marketing guide, HOMEMADE MONEY: Bringing in the Bucks.
