The For & Against A Home Based Business
Difficult decisions are a part of every day life, and the decision on whether or not to start up your very own HOME BASED BUSINESS could be one of the most difficult of all. For every positive aspect there will undoubtedly be a negative side. You have to be the sole judge on what will, or will not, suit you, your family and your lifestyle. Speak to family and friends, and where possible, to people who may all ready be involved in their own HOME BASED BUSINESS. You will most certainly get very differing views, but these views, added to your own, will hand you sufficient information from which to guide you towards your decision. Unless you are fully committed to starting up and running your HOME BASED BUSINESS, it may be better advised to remain in outside paid employment.
Many potential HOME BASED BUSINESS Entrepreneurs lack the commitment required on a daily basis and become frustrated when unrealistic results do not show during the embryonic stages of their business. You have to have a deep reserve of patience and commitment, as success will rarely happen over-night. (If it did, homes would replace office buildings and factories as work centres.) Outside paid employment offers you a guaranteed wage with other benefits such as overtime, commissions, bonuses and employer-paid superannuation. While your HOME BASED BUSINESS will only return income commensurate with the time and effort you are willing to put into it.
If sacrificing income is of concern, then you should remain in the job you are in now and, if still keen to WORK FROM HOME, try it on a part-time basis (just a few hours a week) and be guided by your results and progress. You will then have a clearer picture as to the future of a HOME BASED BUSINESS within your lifestyle. As you become more comfortable with the concept and financial realisations of WORKING FROM HOME you can look to expanding your HOME BASED BUSINESS, and to saying goodbye to your present boss. You may need to investigate a number of WORK FROM HOME ideas before finding the most suitable avenue for your talents. Some may find working for a boss to be much easier than taking on the day to day decision-making process themselves. It may be that you are perfectly at ease in an environment where you are less likely to be distracted from work, and in a situation where the structure of your workplace dictates your daily routine. It can also provide a good social network and, at times, a means of escaping minor problems at home. If, however, you are able to avoid the possible distractions of WORKING FROM HOME, as well as absorb any short-term financial loss and apply the discipline required to plan and implement your HOME BASED BUSINESS then you will be on your way to enjoying the long-term benefits it can provide. WORKING FROM HOME is NOT for everyone. But, if a lifestyle change is what you are after, it cannot hurt to carry out some research.
Instead of working to make someone else rich, dealing with office politics, unreasonable demands, hours & deadlines, travel time & costs, extended hours apart from your loved-ones, battling prevailing weather conditions and so on, you can be your own boss and work your own hours. Yours In Business.
