Question by Terry B: Sole Proprietor Online Business Owners: How did you decide what business to start, or what product to sell?
I have such widely varied interests, am having a hard time narrowing myself down to one product! I’m wondering if you had difficulty deciding on which business to start, and if so, how did you overcome that hurdle?
Ideally, at this point in my career I’d like to start focusing on something online that requires creativity AND operations/ technical knowledge and skills, from our home. Any ideas or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Answer by Eric H
I fell into my idea by accident (it’s called serendipidy).
I was making one thing, needed a product to make it, found a whack of the stuff for free and started selling it instead.
In your case, research each one of your interests to see how much is selling, whether it’s selling for prices that you can make a profit at, then decide on the best 2 or 3 items to start.
You can always add some others later.
