Launching a New Business from home...anyone else?

Hi, I am a working mom of 2, one in school and one home yet. I work part time as a physical therapist and have dreams of starting my own business. I have gone through the entire set up process for a WordPress business consulting business and am at the point of seeking out my first client.

Anyone else starting a business from home? If so how are you taking the leap and diving in? I am struggling to get good leads for clients and am thinking of offering my services for free initially...any advice?

I haven't started my own business from home, but I have a few friends that have. The key for them was setting up a great website with keywords that would pull up their website when people typed those words in the search engine. One of my friends offered a discount for initial customers and if they referred so many customers, they would get a product for free. You could maybe do that as far as your services. They set up Facebook pages and would post promos or news updates that would get people interested in them. They did have to invest a bit in advertising up front, but were able to get a client base and have it continue to grow. You could offer the first consult free and provide a discounted rate if they use your services. Then, offer the promo for referring other clientele. I wish I could speak from my own personal experience, but I have to say that one of my friends has been very successful with her online business and has done everything I mentioned above.

Best of luck to you! Hope everything works out and you are able to pursue your dream! :)
