My goal is to devise at least three realistic ideas for home businesses that would suit me.
My husband says it's as though a great idea is on the tip of my tongue, but I can't quite spit it out.
Founder Doris Christopher describes brainstorming in her new book, Pampered Chef: Story of One Of America's Most Beloved Companies.

They nixed catering and restaurants as too time consuming, settling on a teaching-style presentation of quality kitchen goods. Christopher borrowed $3,000 from a life insurance policy and set up inventory in her basement.
Well, we all know how that turned out!
