(Huffington Post) — Like so many other Americans who’ve turned to entrepreneuship, I decided to start a home business and start selling the pique assiette mosaic art I’d been designing as a hobby. The first move was to load up on supplies — getting more plates on eBay, colored grout, tile cement and gloves from Home Depot — as my plan was to include planters, candlestick holders and lamps, later adding cremation urns. Everyone had advice: “You need a state tax I.D. number,” — my husband. “I need a web site,” — me.
