Many people have the desire to own their own business, but are hindered by the required capital. The best solution is to start a home based business. You can take advantage of empty spaces in the house such as the yard, garage and kitchen to start running a business. By utilizing a house, you can save substantial capital costs, so that existing capital can be allocated for other needs. Here are some ways you should do when you want to be successful in starting a home business.
1. Ask for Family Support
Family is the most important element before starting a business, especially if you are just starting a business. The family is a supporter in terms of material and non-material. If the family does not support it, the business you are running will be increasingly difficult to develop, it can even fail because there is no support from the family. Therefore, in doing business, family support is needed, starting from the beginning of pioneering to success later.
2. Study Administration
Even though the business you are running is only a home class, you also need to master administration even if it’s only simple. Always do administrative records in an orderly manner even though the value is relatively small and never mix personal finances with business. One of the main foundations for the continuity of the business that you will live on in order to be successful is administrative problems.
3. Define Business Vision and Mission
Determining the vision and mission is important for determining the direction of future business goals, even though the business is only a home class, but you also have to define it clearly so that when the business is running, there will be clear goals to be achieved in the future, not only running but must have targets. Without a vision and mission, what is the goal and how to achieve that goal becomes difficult to achieve.
4. Keep Your Mind From Failure
Every business has only two choices, namely success or failure. A true businessman will never feel afraid of failure, even though he is still a beginner. If from the start you feel unsure about the business you are going to do, then you can be sure that in the future the business will fail. The businessman mentality will usually be strong over time and the obstacles that have been faced, need a long process in order to achieve success. So, ask yourself, which one is strong between thinking success and failure before starting a business.
5. Calculate budget requirements
You will not run a business if you have insufficient capital. Calculate carefully which are the most important needs for the business to run. Avoid purchasing items that are deemed unnecessary. In addition, you can also take advantage of what is around the house to start a business such as the yard, garage, kitchen, cooking utensils, and so on.
6. Select the area according to expertise
The important point for starting a business is in accordance with the passion you have. Why does it have to be in accordance with the expertise you have? If it is based on passion, then what you do will be more energetic and feel lighter. When the business is run with passion, the business will quickly achieve success. Avoid choosing fields that don’t match your expertise. So if you like the field of photographer, you can open a photo service at home, or if you like design, you can open a graphic design service. Only with Adobe Photoshop software, you can get additional money as well as channeled passion.
7. Select Time to Start
Building a business cannot be done carelessly. Don’t be in a hurry, because business requires careful calculations, just a little mistake you can experience losses. If you choose the wrong time, then your business will fail. For example, when approaching the month of Ramadan, the most appropriate business is selling Muslim clothing and Eid cakes.
8. Determine the uniqueness of the product
When you have started a business, so that your products can be well received by consumers, you must have a product that is more unique than similar products. Especially now that the competition is getting tougher so that every product marketed must be able to attract and attract customers. In addition, by using a unique product, your brand will be easier for consumers to remember.
9. Promote Appropriately

In terms of promotion, so that not too much money is spent, the promotion target must be right. You can try promoting your product through Facebook Ads or Google Adwords, both platforms can determine what you want to target.
