Deciding to start my own business from home seemed to be a smart thing to do. I had the training to teach beginner piano lessons to children and adults. I had a keyboard and stand that was easy to move around, and easy to play. I started to tell family and friends about the opportunity for their children to take beginner piano lessons. I wrote out a note on some construction paper about my piano lesson business hoping to receive many calls.
Several weeks went by and I had not received one telephone call. I went back to the store to look at my note I had put up, and realized it looked very unprofessional. Going back home I ordered my own business cards with my own design on them. Went back to the store, and put one up and soon I was receiving several telephone calls for piano lessons.
