Why start a Home Based Business?

Working from home is not just some recent trend for those looking to get out of the rat race, it is something that has been around for a long time and is something that comes quite naturally to people. Before the Industrial Revolution of the 18th century it was the norm to do business from home. It wasn't until only recently with the new Internet explosion and great advances in technology that we have seen a mass of people choosing to work from home again.

It has been dubbed the "open collar revolution" as people abandon their jobs in droves. (I guess it could also be dubbed the "pajama revolution" or the "no need to brush your hair everyday revolution"). Thousands are choosing to leave their jobs everyday to work from the comfort and convenience of their home office. Just as many people are working on their home business part time while remaining in their day job long enough to eventually work at home full time.

As many people continue to become more stressed, more under pressure, work longer hours, and spend more hour commuting to and from their workplace, we see more people becoming frustrated and dissatisfied with the 9-5 rat race. More and more people are looking at the home based office as a way of escaping their problems at work.

The home business industry is almost as diverse as the small business industry. People are working in every field imaginable from their home office. They include fields as diverse as computer programming, producing craft and art work, telesales, financial advice, education, training and consulting.

The benefits that people find from choosing to work at home can be very rewarding. Parents and spouses are finding more time to be with their family, work hours can be flexible,
personal goals can be pursued, and quite often the financial rewards can be far more than the average 9 to 5 job.

Getting started with a home based business is not as easy as many Internet marketers and sales people may try to tell you though. A home business takes a lot of time and effort to plan, start and make profitable. After all, it is a serious business and you are competing for market share from other established business that are also doing their best to be successful. All the same skills and knowledge required to run a traditional business will be needed for a home based business. Skills in business planning, account keeping, advertising, marketing, selling, management and knowledge relevant to your chosen field will need to be acquired if you are to be successful.

Working from home is a worthy goal to strive towards and should be carefully planned and given every chance to succeed. Many people start by continuing to work in their traditional jobs while working nights and weekends at home, planning, building and growing the home business enough to eventually leave the 9 to 5 behind. This method gives you the safety of your regular wage while you learn and grow your business at home. There is a lot of hard work involved in getting started from home, but the rewards can far outweigh sacrifices made. Many successful home entrepreneurs will tell you that nothing beats the feeling of being financially successful at home and being able to live the life you always wanted to.
