Want to start a home-based business?

Home Based Business, or HBBs, are operated by family members of the U.S. Army soldiers or civilians who provide a service to other U.S. forces members and affiliates. Family members stationed at Fort Polk may want to work out of their home and try their hand at starting a business in or out of their government quarters.

Examples of services are tutoring, singing and dancing lessons, accounting and tax services, word processing, childcare and similar skills. In addition, multi-level sales activities (i.e. Avon, Tupperware and Pampered Chef) are typical HBB activities.
