Positive Advantages of Owning A Home Based Business


Article By Stephen Wright


Like millions of others, are you struggling to make that important decision about creating your very own home based business?  Everyone seems to be talking about these days? Can I really make it? Is having a business run from my home a realistic possibility for me and my family situation?


Before making this decision there are a number of benefits you have to consider. This article seeks to identify some of those advantages.


First and foremost, operating a business from your home is a major change in your life. Many people discount or misunderstand this to be the case.


Depending on the location of your traditional job workplace, especially major metropolitan areas, avoiding the daily grind of commuting to and from work in itself will be a welcome relief. There will be immediate savings in commuting expenses (gas, automobile wear and tear, parking expenses in some areas, etc.)


From your old workplace, you will be avoiding (or at least see a major reduction in) the expense in such things as lunch costs, clothing purchased and maintained specifically for the workplace.  Some home business entrepreneurs even tout that they work at home in their pajamas! Not sure I would recommend this, but on some days, why not!


And let’s not forget the occasional to frequent financial contributions for flowers, gifts, food for special occasions and events.


From your old workplace, not many of us will terribly miss the anxiety and stress of being physically engaged in most workplace environments these days. True, even working from a home based business can and will be stressful at times, however, most agree that the differences are substantial in favor of working at home.


On the upside, working for yourself frees you up for more important activities such as surprise lunch visits with the kids at school, more family time, being more readily available for family and friends when events come up.


The list of positive benefits associated with being your own boss and the freedom and potential profits that entails can be exciting and financially rewarding.


Be careful however not to fall into the trap of filling up your home business “work time” with outside activities not related to your business. After all, it is a business and requires some of the same attention as any business.  For this reason, it is highly recommended that you establish and carefully monitor specific goals and objectives for your self and your business.


Task yourself with monitoring progress towards these goals and taking corrective action as necessary.  The key is frequency of monitoring of the progress. If you aren’t careful those “moments” away from working on your home based business suddenly turn into hours, days or weeks.


With some basic attention to efficient use of your time, you will be able to handle the transition into the freedom and benefits operating a home based business can bring for yourself and your loved ones.


Make it fun and make sure you find something that you are happy doing, have a passion for and can become an expert in. Achieve these, and the revenues will surely follow.
