Well...no big surprise here! All the answers to the questions were YES! If you answered yes to most of these questions then you probably have the "Right Stuff" to make it in a home based business.

Try to strengthen this area through education, study, extensive reading, research, consulting experts, before embarking on your business venture. Or, hire a partner with good skills in your weak areas.
