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.
