Entrepreneurial Checklist Tool for Beginning Farm and Home-Based Businesses
Rafie, A. R.; Nartea, Theresa
Journal of Extension, v50 n1 Article 1TOT10 Feb 2012
Extension educators entertain frequent questions on beginning a farm or starting a home-based business. Retired, unemployed, and displaced workers consider starting a small farm or home-based business. Determining educational needs or individual business aptitude is time consuming. Lengthy and comprehensive skill-based checklists exist for business self assessment (Boehlje, Dobbins, Miller, Bechman, & Rausch, 2000). Authors suggest Extension educators use a simple personality-based checklist tool to assist individuals in assessing entrepreneurial ability prior to starting a beginning farm and home based business.
