Home Based Businesses

“Imagine Your Own Home Business”
How to select, start, and run a realistic home business.

New Business Ideas–food for thought

As promised, I am adding more information to help you with your new home business.  The information added will rotate to different subjects for entrepreneurs.  Today I wanted to give you examples of online shops as mentioned in my new book, Realistic Home Businesses.  My book has only been available on Amazon three days and is already selling.  I wanted to show you my other home-based business websites that I am actively involved in.  Besides being a writer, I am a jewelry artisan and supply seller.  Two websites are mine, that I host, and I have two shops on Etsy.  Take a look at the websites and imagine what you might sell in place of what I am selling.  You can have your own website or sell on Etsy or several other places listed in my book mentioned below.  Look at other shops on Etsy.  They sell photography, art, jewelry, antiques, supplies and more.  My book explains how to get started.  Here are four of my personal websites:

https://etsy.com/shop/GotStyle  (my artisan made jewelry)

https://etsy.com/shop/GotStyleSupplies  (my supply shop)

https://gotstylenow.com   (my artisan made jewelry)

Realistic Home Businesses

New Book Cover


Hello, My name is Pat Sloss.  This site and blog will go hand in hand with my new book about Home Based Businesses.  I will list more information about the book closer to the publication date.  From time to time, I will list new business descriptions and ideas, not in my book, on this site.  The Business Resources tab contains a list of resources I use to manage my business.  I personally use or have used all of the companies that I am recommending for your business.

Finding all of the information needed to start your new business can be overwhelming.   I hope this information will make your research time for many of the resources you need for your new business a little easier.  Check back often for new information and resources.
