I have been working in the software development field for over 20 years and have an avid interest in home recording. My business aspirations have been modest but always found myself supporting someone else's vision. Now I am trying to share my experiences with those who would like to venture out or continue their efforts with their own business whether its home based or not. My experience with home based businesses has been quit extensive. My step-father ran a jewelry and watch and clock repair shop out of the house. Several of my uncles had their own body shops, an aunt who ran several successful businesses and an ex-wife who over 20 years had 2 successful businesses which were ran out of he house or started out as such. I plan to share my experiences which hopefully will help others overcome the pitfalls and reap the rewards. It is always better to walk around the pit than to fall in and have to claw your way out only to fall into another pit.
