Roll out your imagination; unlatch your long dormant enthusiasm: you are engaging in an alluring treasure hunt -- the search for a home business of your own.
Within the pages of this book you will find your own appropriate home enterprise -- whether it be a pin-money or a full-time job that you are looking for. It will fit your temperament, your aptitudes, your abilities, your interests, your limitations and your locality. The idea will be here, but only you can find it. A road map will show you the way to travel, but not until you have ended the journey will you understand the topography of the area. This book will point the way, but it cannot show you all the pitfalls and detours you will encounter on the highway to making money at home.
For that large membership in the clan of those who will buy anything written on the subject of making money at home, and who then quickly scan and skim it through, hoping that it will magically show them a quick and simple way to riches -- this book is not intended. This is a textbook; not until you have given it hours of study will you begin to find the home career suitable just for you.
Although you will not be taken step by step through every phase of your home career -- it would necessitate a small library to expand upon the multitude of ideas you will find here -- every attempt has been made to show you where you can obtain further information on those careers which attract you the most.
The author's fervent hope and trust is that by showing you how many others have prospered at home careers, you too will be awakened and will go and do likewise.
