8. Locate people who are in the businesses that are left on your list. Find a way to talk with them. Find out what all the pitfalls are, and how to avoid them. Learn as much as you can from them about how they started their business, what it took, from a financial and time standpoint, and what they have done to make their business succeed. It is not a good idea to choose a competitor for this research. Either choose someone who would not be considered a competitor, or don't let them know that you are a potential competitor. Make the call or arrive at the meeting armed with a list of questions to ask.
9. Think about the remaining potential businesses on your list. Think about each one individually. Imagine yourself taking the steps necessary to start up each business. Imagine yourself running each business. Which ones feel right? Which ones feel wrong? Your gut instinct should never be ignored. With some businesses, redundancy can become a problem. Will you get burnt out doing the same tasks over and over? You need to think long and hard about your options, your personality, your likes and dislikes, etc.
10.With all of the information you have gathered in your research, you are finally in the best position possible to choose your new business. So, simply make a choice...but don't throw your list away. You may want to try one of the other possibilities in the future - after you've made a success of your first home business!
