I want to start a business, but how do I decide what business is right for me?

I am a single mom to a seven month old. I have been staying home with him but now find that I need to start generating my own money.

I have a degree in Graphic Design just acquired in February last year and am a mural artist as well. I have been toying with the idea of starting a design business and/or mural painting business. I don’t have any money to really do any kind of major startup, besides registering the business, but these seem like ideas that wouldn’t take any major investment.

I have a website for my portfolio which needs some polish, but it’s a start. I still am not sure if I should do the graphic design, mural painting, both, maybe just create a website to maintain that I can somehow get traffic to. I don’t know what would be most lucrative and most efficient in time managment. Any suggestions on how to decide, or getting started are appreciated.

    Have you been successiful with your murals/graphic designs so far? Maybe you can start with previous work and build clients through them and word of mouth? Have you looked into applying for small business loans? You could check with your bank or look into grants to help you get started.

    I’m a stay at home mom myself and luckily, I’m married to a man who brings in the money. My best advice is that you do what you love, so this way your job will never get old. Well, it might after a while, but you need to do what you like, what your intrested in, and what will allow you to depend on you, not anyone else. (Like myself). So, do what is going to generate the most money and allow the time you do need with your child. Good Luck!
