Christian Home Based Business Opportunity - Are There Any?

Are you looking for a Christian home based business opportunity, but find you are disappointed with the selection? There are some good ones out there, but I have not found there to be an abundance of them.

Many look for a Christian based opportunity for several reasons.

• They want to work with like-minded people with similar values
• They want o sell Christian products that have a lasting effect
• They feel better about the home based opportunity and feel they are less likely to be scammed
• They want to be part of something "bigger" - something with eternal benefits.

What is your reason? It doesn't have to fit one of the above. It might be any number of other explanations.

The existing Christian home based opportunities that I am familiar with are mainly selling products like jewelry, books, or other items. Some don't involve selling Christian based products but the companies are owned by Christian entrepreneurs.

So, what do you do if you don't want to sell Christian books or jewelry? You may not have a keen interest in selling what is offered. Do you give up on your goal of starting a Christian home based business?

No! Think about "creating" an opportunity. Take an inventory of your experience, interests, gifts and talents. Then determine what type of home based opportunity would lend itself to incorporating these into a business.

When you develop your own opportunity, you are much more likely to enjoy it and feel connected to it. There are always challenging times in a business, and if it is one that you have created from scratch to suit who you are, you will be able to keep going through the difficult times. Having an invested interest in the business goes a long way in sticking with it.

Always, but always, do your research before you settle on a business. Determine if there is a market who would be interested in what you want to offer, whether it is a service or a product. Always, make sure they are willing to spend money on it, and are not freebie-seekers. You want to pursue an opportunity that has profit potential.

Check in stores to see what is selling. Talk with the owners to see how popular the particular types of products are. You don't want to make exactly the same type of products, but if other similar ones are selling, that is a good sign.

Do as much research as possible before jumping in. Know that there is a potential to make a good profit before you start your business up.
