I hate that stupid Vonage commercial. If you are ready to save on your phone bill, you might be wondering if there is something better than Vonage. I did make those mistakes the first time around, and lost my a; essentially ended up paying to have the buyer take the item off my hands. Not this time! I have to really watch it, as I’m not selling very high-value items right now, so the pennies do have to count and mount up in my favor.
Ever wanted to take piano lessons or become better at tennis? Many establishments will offer gift certificates for a free lesson at their place of business. This is one where you will need to know your audience. An auction basket for music lessons may go over very well at a school, while a series of tennis lessons may work better at a country club. Combine the gift certificate with a small basket or item to make it stand out. For example, include a small basket of balls and accessories with a tennis lesson auction item.
First, you need a large work room. This could be a spare room or two in the house, a garage or a large shed. Be sure this space is solely dedicated to your business; this is important for compliance with IRS requirements for home-based business deductions.
The first thing you need to do is find out whether or not your city or state will permit you to establish a snow cone stand. Contact city hall, the state tax office and the health department. They will be more than happy to tell you what the legal requirements are for establishing a snow cone business. The fee that the health department and the tax office charge for snow cone stands is minimal in most states. It would be wise to start with a telephone call and simply ask for information.

When I first started selling, I did my books by hand in ledger books like I told you about earlier, and then upgraded to spreadsheets. Eventually I outgrew my spreadsheets and got a freeware software package. I then outgrew THAT and currently use Peachtree Accounting software to run my business. It gives me the tools to run reports, do analysis, and saves me time I can use for doing other things to run my business – like creating more Squidoo lenses and knitting more doll and bear sweaters.
