House made of 100 dollar billsHave you turned a hobby or passion into a work-from-home business? Then you’re just the bootstrap business leader we want to hear from! We’re seeking reports from people who are self-employed (either full or part time) in an at-home business of their own creation — whether it’s selling homegrown or handcrafted products, offering lessons, or providing a service.

Tell us about how you started your own homegrown business. Some examples of work-from-home businesses are:

  • Selling honey from your backyard beekeeping operation
  • Marketing homemade soaps and lotions
  • Cutting and selling firewood from your homestead

There are many other ways you or someone you know may have built a home-based business. We want to hear about what you tried and how it turned out — for better or for worse — along with any tips you would offer others (because our readers want to learn from your experiences). We plan to use your reports in an upcoming article. If we choose to include your story, we’ll pay you $50.

Contact us online at Letters@MotherEarthNews.com, or write us at “Dear Mother,” MOTHER EARTH NEWS, 1503 SW 42nd St., Topeka, KS 66609. Please include your full name, address and phone number.
