Question by kardawnc: Does anyone know of any home based business that doesn’t have a large start up fee?
I’m a single Mom with a deadbeat ex. I work full time, but it’s still very difficult to make ends meet. I don’t want to punch another time clock. I’d love to have a home based business. Something to do with primitive home decor, etc. Someone please help me!!

I’m told that if you can get into Hospital Dictation recording (also call medical transcription) it can be very good money and you can work from home. Problem is, you may need to have a certain degree in order to do it. However, if you’re a fast typist they may wave the degree requirement.
If you’re looking for a true self-employment situation, then you’re pretty much looking for an initial investment, due to the requirement for starting materials or products. However, certain crafts can be cheaper than trying to run a merchandise based buisness. For example, wood working will require probably around 500-1000 dollars to start up (for tools, wood, books, etc) but from there has a low continuing cost since you just have to buy the wood, finishers, and an occasional tool replacement/upgrade.
If you’re good at writing, you could consider being an Author. It’s very, very hard to get started and requires some time. But it has very little start-up cost and can potentially earn decent money. If you’re looking for a quick start, childrens books and romance novels probably have the least amount of neccisary writing skill (Sorry romance novelists) and are the most easily published.
