Stepping out on your own and starting a home-based business can be stressful and intimidating.Â Sandy McQueen of McQueenathome.com has tried to help take some of both problems out of the equation with some of her home based business ideas for 2013 .
â€śFor many, the most important thing to do is simply start.Â Getting over this hurdle is the first step to a successful, at-home business,â€ť said Sandy McQueen of McQueenathome.com.
One of McQueenâ€™s newest business ideas is a fundraising consultant.Â As a fundraising consultant, you will help various organizations and non-profits raise money for different projects.
â€śConsultants set their own hours and can set their own personal pay scale and rates.Â This makes them ideal for an at-home business model,â€ť McQueen added.
Since so many schools and philanthropic organizations do fundraisers year-round, becoming a consultant is fairly easy to do.Â Those who have a family with school-aged children know all about fundraisers and selling goods and services.
â€śSchools are a great place to start as a fundraising consultant if for no other reason than to begin earning experience,â€ť McQueen said.
As you become more and more versed in what works and what does not, you will be able to spread out and work with more and varied groups and organizations to raise money.
â€śUltimately, your worth as a fundraising consultant will be determined by how successful you are.Â This will take time and error, but perseverance will pay dividends in the future,â€ť McQueen added.
