More Practical Distributism

OK, we've heard some things you can do as a consumer distributist. But what about a living & working distributist? One commentor made reference to this: you start doing your hobby, and work it gradually into a home business or self-employment opportunity. But what about some practical advice on how to do this? We have debts to pay off, children to raise; how does one get from corporate job to self-employed safely with a family? How many years is it practical to say that it takes to actually do it? And what if you're scared to leave the so-called security of a job that pays health benefits (and you have children or yourself with health problems or pre-existing conditions)--and you feel tied to the job that will pay the hospital bills?

  1. Example. She works as a saleslady in women's apparel at Nieman Marcus. He loses his job. She talks to her long-term customers (who have very fine designer dresses and things in their closets) about letting her husband sell them on e-bay. The ladys are tired of their old stuff and like the idea of extra pin money. The net? He's pulling down $100,000 a year.
