If you are considering starting your own home business, one of the first things you must think about is budgeting and planning to find the money you need. You can start the planning process from your kitchen table if necessary. You'll need a telephone with an answering machine to handle calls while you're budgeting and planning. It is important that you project a favorable image. So in addition to the phone, you will need good quality business cards, which should include your name, the company name, phone number, web site and e-mail address. A computer with appropriate software is a necessity for internet marketers. A calculator and a file cabinet would be nice but can wait a while.
