crafting on the web
The internet is a great entry point for people who want to start businesses online. Small businesses can start out as a hobby, and grow to something larger. I came across a nice article about people who have found some success selling homemade crafts online from the writers of the Wall Street Journal. If this is something that you might want to do, there are a good number of sites that offer help and suggestions. In addition to the groups and message boards indicated in the article, you can check out the classes and resources available from your local Small Business Administration. There is also a very informative, and free, online business course on the pages of My Own Business.
