HELP! My Sims are rubbish when it comes to running a business. I know how to get started. But they always seem to be running at a loss. Any tips on running a successful business would really help. Thanks.

Make sure that your Sim has lots of money before running a business (use the cheat: motherlode)!!!

If you want to make lots of money from your business, then do what I do. Place lots of hot tubs and jacuzzi's, then place several ticket machines just inside the doorway. The reason is because other Sims can see what you've got to offer. Also place a few Pinball machines as well. I've got a brilliant hack/mod, a shower that let's sims have sex with each other. Also build private accommodation for your Sim next to your business, then you can keep an eye on things 24/7. I started with a "home business", but my game kept on crashing. So I bought an empty commercial lot and moved my Sim onto the business lot.
