Default Re: Elements of Starting a Cottage Industry

This is good information, and well presented. One of my hobbies is making organic herbal soaps, and I've also made furniture polishes and finishes based on historic recipes. For the last couple of years I've been on the brink of turning the soap thing into a real business. People love the product and I sell all I can make. In fact, just in the last few days I was sitting around with a couple friends and we made an agreement to pool a few bucks and see what would happen. We're going to make a hundred pounds of soap and see how long it takes to turn our money over and make a profit. We agreed to keep our hands out of the pot until it reaches $10,000. I'm going to print out your information and hand it around.

Thank you.
