Experience is the best teacher, right? But learning the hard way how to start your home business can make for a bumpy educational ride. What do you wish you'd known before you started your home business?

That I would have to work

I thought working from home would be loads of fun and I'd have a ton of free time. Not if I wanted to succeed! It's a real job, and I had to suck it up and deal with it. Love it now though!

Accounting

I wish I'd paid more attention in the one accounting class I'd taken in college. It was enough for me to decide I didn't want to be an accountant. But now I wish I knew more!
