    In the beginning stages of forming a home-based business. Am I being realistic? I would love to hear any tips or suggestions for coping. The physical demands of my proposed business are minimal - might be too minimal in fact! The mental demands will be considerable, and I wonder what strategies I might incorporate to improve performance.

    I am not self-employed (my hubby is) but I'm throwing my $.02 in anyway! I think any mental stress you will face has to be countered greatly by the relief of being on familiar home turf, setting your own hours & schedule, being responsible only to yourself, etc. That reduced pressure, I think, could only help concentration & mental abilities. I'm excited for you, that you have this opportunity! Please keep us posted on your progress---sorry I couldn't be of more help, others here might have many more suggestions...

    Good luck!
