Success in the home-based business

Can you have a successful home-based business if you're only working at it part-time? 
Absolutely. Consider people who are full-time employed outside the home, but run profitable home-based eBay businesses or weekend enterprises. Discipline is needed to run a business with non-traditional hours, but it can be done.

But remember that when working from home -- as with any entrepreneurial endeavor --"success" is measured both in dollars and in personal satisfaction. Therefore, define your measure of success, whether it's the amount of money you want to make, or the the satisfaction in doing something you love. Or why not both?
