Let’s take part in a simple thought experiment…
Imagine we have a mutual friend, called Jane, who wants to start a home-based business…baking cakes.
First she goes to evening school and learns some professional-grade baking skills. Once she feels she has the level of skill she needs, she builds a beautiful website and opens her doors for business.
How do you think Jane will do?
Although we both want her business to thrive, in all honesty she probably won’t have much success. Perhaps she could sell enough cakes to call what she does a hobby, but she almost certainly won’t make a decent living.
