Founded Based On An International Trend John Naisbitt, the world’s leading authority on trends, defines in his book ‘Global Paradox’, one of today’s most important trends – Travel – currently at $4.9 TRILLION annually, the world’s largest industry. It employs 10.6% of the world’s workforce and is growing 23% faster than the world economy! According to Opportunity Magazine in the January, 1998 issue the T.I.A. (Travel Industry Association of America) said travel sales hit an all time high and were estimated at over $4.4 TRILLION dollars (that was in 1998)! Vacation and Travel is now the third largest retail industry in America! Trends such as this lead to financial success and define our lives. We either make money or spend money on trends depending on where we position ourselves. A good example of this is Bill Gates, who maintains the elite status of being the richest man in the world because he positioned himself in front of one of these hot trends: The Computer Revolution!

Starting A Small Home Business On A Budget Starting a small home business on a budget is extremely possible. You will be amazed at how quickly you can expand your budget and use your profits to grow your new home business. The key is to select a small home business that offers products that are consumable. This will ensure that you have a continual flow of repeat customers to keep your business operational and profitable. Here are some tips for starting a small home business on a budget. Select a small home business that can be based on a consumable product. The wellness industry is rapidly growing as more and more consumers are paying attention to their health. You can market and sell a variety of health related products in the wellness industry that will benefit your customers and bring you repeat sales that last for many years. For example, skin care products are extremely popular. When a customer uses up the entire product, they will return to your small home business to order more. This ensures that you have repeat clients on a continual basis to keep your business profitable and growing. Choose a small home business that has no or very little start-up costs. There are many places on the Internet where you can become a distributor for a specific set of wellness related products with no start-up costs at all. This means that as you distribute the product and earn a residual income, you can put the profits back into the business to help it grow and expand rapidly. Before you know it a few sales a week will turn into a many sales per day while you grow and expand your distributorship. Some people select wellness products that are inexpensive or are offered at whole sale prices. This means that you can sell these products or provide a service to others without sinking a fortune in the start-up of the business. Each time that you make a sell or a client uses your service, set aside part of the money to re-invest in your small home business. For example, you can save half of your profit to purchase more products for your inventory. Or you can use half of the profit to market and advertise your new small home business. Using your profits to build and expand your business will enable you to stay within a budget and have the least amount of risk in your business. Another key factor to staying on a budget with a new small home business is to plan your expenses. Do you really need a new computer to operate your business? Do you really need a new outfit to attend a trade show or informational seminar? There are many times that new business owners feel that they absolutely have to have a certain item to be successful. Stop and think about your purchases and determine if you really must have the new item to operate the business. You can always upgrade your computer or buy that outfit in the future after your business has become stronger Learn the tax deductions that you are entitled with your small home business. For example, you may be able to take off a percentage of your mortgage, internet connection fees and even electricity. You should consult with a financial advisor to find out what types of things you need to save receipts for and enable you to take the highest tax deductions to save you money and help you operate the small home business on a budget.
