An online business requires as much time and planning as a tangible business would. A full space office with phone, computer and internet is mandatory.

If you can spare a room in your home solely dedicated for this work, you can save on office rent or buying office. Landlines and VOIP may be no more used. Skype has made calling easy but having phone is advisable. Lastly, if you are a web developer, you can design your own website and grow it. And if you are not; you spend few bucks to create a website. A quick tip would be to not spend too much on website designing initially. Start with a simple yet sober or chic look. You can always better it at a later stage.

No experience is required for an online retail business. So if you own are a home-maker and want to set up a jewellery business, do not hesitate. Right planning will take you to the right places. Travelling is not needed too.
