Support Is Important
Part of having a home business is building up
business, yes, but another important part is to become
a part of a network of others who work from home.
Having a home business can be frustrating at times,
especially if your friends and family aren't
supportive, so it's always a good idea to get in touch
with others who are going through the same types of
things that you are going through.
One of the best places to go for home business support
is the Internet. It's full of message boards and
forums for people who are in the home business and who

The first thing that you will want to do is to
introduce yourself. Usually it's acceptable to say

already being discussed.
Be sure to check the board or forum rules, but it's
pretty much universal what is expected of those that
join the boards, and what is allowed.
