This week Tom Egelhoff’s Weekly Small Business Podcast dealt with the entrepreneurial spirit of starting your own home-based business.

One of the first items covered was, “Are you SERIOUS?”

In order to be successful in any business — that's the question you must ask yourself. Some of the other points made during this podcast:

  • How do you pick the right business?
  • Do you need a business license?
  • Do you have a business or a hobby in the eyes of the IRS?
  • Do you need a separate bank account?
  • How do you register your business name?
  • Do I need to incorporate?
  • What about business cards?
  • Is free help available to me?

Some Final Thoughts After the podcast Shane and Tom answer some text questions on small business from listeners. Check out this podcast and home-based business talking points to blacken your bottom line.
