Thinking of taking a hobby and turning it into a business?

Before you do, consider these suggestions from the Small Business Trends website:

  • Try your idea out as a side business before jumping into it full-time. This will let you determine whether there’s a market for your product or service and help spread the word about your business.
  • Do your homework by reading up on what strategies successful entrepreneurs used to grow their business.
  • Learn everything you can about your industry so you become an expert.
  • Be prepared that not every new business succeeds.
