I really want to be a gift basket designer but I don't think I'm qualified

Yahoo! Finance: The Top 25 Home-Based Business Ideas [finance.yahoo.com].

Web design. If you can design quality Web sites, consider turning your skills into a home-based business. Although the software and hardware costs can be steep, good Web designers tend to be well-compensated for their efforts.

How does this make you feel?

Intellectually superior to the person who wrote that article.

Makes me feel slightly insulted...

- If you have skills in photography, you should consider becoming a photographer -

What great leap of imagination did it take to come up with that gem?

"Oh darn! Here I have been designing quality websites and done programming and stuff for years ... and not once did it actually cross my mind that I could turn this into a business and make money off of it!"


"Hmm, I set up my own blog/myspace profile ... Wasn't too hard. I think I can be a web designer!"

And if you can...
- boil water, you should consider becoming a chef.
- write your name, you should consider becoming a novelist.
- ride a bike, you should consider racing in the Tour de France.

Of course, the key word in the OP is "quality web sites," which closes the door for a lot of people.

LOL the #1 on the list is personal trainer.


I loooove when all those fitness-minded people become trainers. Their clients end up at my door with red faces, knee braces and chubby fists full of cash.

I second the bwahahahahah!

When looking at that list it resembles my spam filter for Adsense!

"Need a Job? Be a Consultant!"
"Interior Design degree in 3 days?"
"Get Jimmy Bo Bob's Yoga DVD!"

What do we do now that the secret is out?!

Why, open a riding school of course!

oh, wait, I think I need my own barn, land, and horses for that

LOL - I love it.

A river of sarcasm is precisely what I was hoping to see.

Oh well, I guess I'd better stop this whole web designer nonsense and get back to my gift baskets.

Wonder how many people read that article, are planning their web design home business even as we speak - armed with FrontPage and some atrocious animated gifs?

(I think I'll call myself a Personal Shopper - hmm, what can I deduct as a "business expense" :)?)

I'm reminded of a television commercial I saw once not long ago... There is this guy sitting at his kitchen table with a knife in his hand.. on the phone up to his face a doctor speaks to him saying something to the effect of "now just make an incision between the fourth and fifth something or other" the guy says "shouldn't you be doing this?".. I think it was for an investment company..

Actually, that article is perfect. I want to use it to illustrate the difference between fluff and real content.

Medical claims billing. This industry is one of the most popular work-from-home businesses -- so much so that suspect companies have been popping up on the Internet and in classified advertisements.

So a great home business idea is joining an industry that's becoming increasingly "suspect?" Does that mean Job #26 was for...

Pharmaceutical Acquisition Assistance. If you own a home computer, with some inexpensive software and a few minutes of your time each day, you can assist others in obtaining needed medications by bringing to their attention the medications' availability via a friendly message sent via the Interweb's electronic mailer system.
