Using Your Passion is the Key!
If you’re tired of your job, the boss, and the 9 to 5 grind, then perhaps this IS the season for you to seriously consider starting your very own home based business. It’s not all that difficult to do!
Advantages of starting a home based business
- Less stressful: knowing you can stay at home to tend to children, you will find it a lot less stressful juggling the demands of your business and your family.
- More free time: being home to see your children off to school and back again will be a treat … and, in emergencies, it’s much easier to leave your desk at home than if you work for someone else.
- Opportunities to learn: As boss, you will discover that you wear a lot of “different hats” throughout your day. One minute you’re a business development manager and the next your a marketing professional. These responsibilities will afford you insight into and the experience with all of the aspects of running a business, making you even MORE marketable!
- Less risky: Less startup capital is needed when starting up a than, say, signing a lease agreement for floor space to use. And, it’s cheaper and easier to maintain than a separate location would be.
- Tax advantages: Having your home and your business all under “one roof” will definitely prove advantageous when it comes time to do your taxes. You will soon discover that you can deduct part of your household operating expenses on your home based business operation.
- You make your own luck: The harder you work, the more money you can make. When you work hard, you produce more. You will soon discover that your earning potential is in direct proportion to how hard you work. Imagine … no more waiting for a raise or a promotion!
- Personal freedom: No more commuting to-and-fro a j-o-b. This time being freed up can now be used more productively.
“In 2011, commuters spent an average of 25.4 minutes travelling to work. This was almost the same as the average in the United States for the same year (25.5 minutes).” U.S. Census Bureau, 2011 American Community Survey according to www12.statcan.gc.ca
Fist off, that’s how many years ago now? … and … that’s time lost commuting only ONE way. These are extra minutes you will gain so you can finally take control of your personal life.
Then there is the fact that you get to dress the way you want to, you set your very own work schedule, you get to prepare and eat lunch at home (or, like me, as you’re working) … and, BEST OF ALL … NO OFFICE POLITICS!
- Doing what you love: Picking a passion, such as a hobby, as your home base business will now afford you a creative means of making money! You will even be able to develop your hobby if you so wish, because YOU are the BOSS.
- Flexible work hours: Many ideas for home based businesses allow you the ability to set your own hours. In this way, you could even accommodate customers in a different time zone to you … or … stop what you’re doing to attend your kid’s school play, or football game.
- You get to test your business idea: It’s being said that more than 50% of all new businesses fail. A home based business allows you a “cushion of safety” in that you can test out your new business without a lot of overhead.
Starting a business while you’re still working is the best business advice I can give you, considering that you’ll need startup capital and that you may need to be able to stay in business for upwards of 5 years before making an actual profit … replacing the income of you j-o-b. But enough of that right now…
