With spring upon us, we look at some sports related hobby businesses in this issue, beginning with the business of sports memorabilia, collecting and auctions of gameworn items.   We also have a look at what was involved for the founds of two amateur sports leagues, the Orange County Adult Soccer League (OCASL) in North Carolina and the New Jersey Amateur Baseball League (NJABL).

We also continue our offerings to promote women in business, looking at two popular sites for networking and communities of women entrepreneurs.  In Canada, we speak with the originator of the Working at Home Moms community (WAHM) [link: www.wahm.com] and in the United States, there is Project Eve [link: www.projecteve.com] which seeks to build a community for networking women business owners.

When you work from home, there is a good chance that you’re shut out from the market, buzzing with activities. It is important to keep yourself updated with market information if you want to be successful.

Networking for Home-based Professionals

One of the best ways to increase your sales is to get referrals but getting referrals may not be as easy if you are a home-based professional. Networking is an integral way to get referrals. Whenever you network with other professionals and business owners, you create a sort of alliance that either party can benefit from. This means that you will have to meet with peers and like-minded individuals so you can work together and improve each other’s sales. You can do this through several different methods including joining local networking organizations. Here are a few things that you can use for a successful networking effort for your home-based business.
