5 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Home-Based Business

In his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", later republished as "Financial Success Through Creative Thought", Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"If you cannot get rich working for the steel trust, you can get rich on a ten-acre farm..."


He may or may not have intended it this way, but it sure sounds like Wallace D. Wattles was talking about a home-based business to me.

Regardless of whether he intended it that way or not, if you don't already have a home-based business, here are five great reasons why you should at least consider one:

Reason #1 - Low startup costs.

Unlike most "traditional" businesses, most home-based businesses can be started on a "wing and a prayer", so to speak. Odds are, depending on the home-based business you want to start, you *already* have everything you need to get started and what little you don't have, which you might need, can be easily purchased from your existing income and/or business profits as you go along, without your having to incur debt to do so.

For those of you who buy into the "it takes money to make money" mentality and/or equate "high" startup costs with the ultimate profitability of a business, it might interest you to know the businesses that cost me the most to start were the least profitable (and ultimately failed) and the ones that cost me the least to start, those I literally started with "pocket change", were the most profitable (and were profitable from "day one", I might add).

That alone ought to tell you something.

Reason #2 - Low overhead.

High "overhead" (the general ongoing, recurring costs of running a business, excluding the costs of labor and materials; mortgage/rent, utilities, and maintenance for example), is, in my opinion, one of the biggest, if not *THE* biggest, killers of businesses there is, as a quick glance at recent financial news stories will tell you.

Because you're *already* paying a mortgage or rent, utilities, and maintenance, the overhead of a home-based business is *zero* or darn close to it.

In addition, at least here in the United States, a home-based business allows you to convert a portion of those non-deductable personal expenses you're *already* paying into tax-deductable business expenses (see Reason #4 below), further reducing your "cost of doing business".

Reason #3 - Low risk.

Low startup costs and low overhead, combined with the fact that most home-based businesses can be started on a "part-time" basis, allowing you to keep your "full-time" source of income, make a home-based business practically "risk-free".


If for some reason it doesn't work out for you (you end up not liking it, it's not profitable, etc.), it's no "big deal" to shut it down and start another one if you like.

Reason #4 - Tax advantages.

A business, at least here in the United States where I live, is just about the last legitimate "tax shelter" there is.

This is *especially* true of a home-based business as it allows you to *legally* convert a portion of the money you're *already* spending and the money you make from your home-based business into tax-deductable business expenses, thus giving you "more bang for your buck", as they say (depending on your income tax bracket, roughly 10-100%+ more!).

Reason #5 - Profit.

It's been said the first business of *any* business is to make a profit and a home-based business is no exception.

Though it's number five on my list of reasons why you should consider a home-based business, the number one reason for starting a home-based business is...


Plain and simple.

This profit can be used to supplement your current income, which recent economic events prove a wise thing to do, or to grow to the point where your home-based business can *reliably* (the key word here is *reliably*) serve as your full-time source of income.

Either way...

I *highly* recommend you consider a home-based business!

A word of warning though...

A home-based business, especially one intended to be a "full-time" source of income, is *NOT* for everyone.

Why do I say that?


In my experience, many, if not most, folks are so used to working for someone else, without a "boss" to tell them exactly what to do and when, left to their own devices with the freedom a home-based business provides, *won't* do what's required to be successful in business, home-based or otherwise.

That being said...

If you have the self-discipline (or are willing to develop it) to do what it takes to be successful in a home-based business...

I *highly* recommend you consider one!

It may well prove for you, as it did for me, to be one of the wisest things you ever did.

How to Set Up a Legitimate Home Based Business

Of the various home based business ideas you've come up with, you were able to make your choice and now you're raring to get started. If so, start right by establishing a legitimate home based business and applying for the necessary permits and licenses.

What You Need for Starters

The first thing you need is a permit to do business, and you'll get this from both your local and state government. You will also need a permit for all signage ads you intend to use, in the event that you'd want to establish your own store at home. Keep in mind that you'll be paying a fee for every signage so try not to go overboard. A Fire Department permit is always necessary, and it usually entails having your own fire extinguisher - even a small one would do - at home.

Choose a Form

Are you alone in your plans of establishing a home based business or do you have other people contributing capital or skills to the business? What are your future plans for the business? Both questions are important to answer immediately as they can help you determine the ideal form for your home based business to take.

Sole proprietorship is the quickest to set up and enjoys the most number of tax benefits. But of course, sole proprietorship also makes you and only you personally liable for losses incurred and violations committed by your business.

Partnership is the next form in the organization ladder. It's relatively easy to set up and has its own advantages to offer as long as the partners can work in harmony and without violating their partnership agreement. Keep in mind, however, that any home based business owned by a partnership will immediately dissolves if any of the partners dies or leaves the business.

Home based businesses can be owned by corporations, too. The incorporation process make take a lot of money, time, and paperwork to accomplish, but it also provides the greatest amount of protection from liabilities for its directors and stockholders.

Pick Out Names

Most home based businesses use sole proprietorship as the form of their business. Assuming that you'll do the same and you intend to use your own name for your business, there won't be any need for registration then.

If, however, you intend to operate your business under another name then that's something you'll have to register as required by the Trade Name Registration Act. To avoid making repeated trips for registering your business name, try having several alternatives ready in case your first choice isn't accepted.

Legitimacy is occasionally judged on the mere basis of a business's name so take care when picking out a name for your home based business. Choosing one that sounds too much like a competitor's could make people think you're not averse to using illegal tactics to do business.

Choose a name that best represents your business and one that can easily catch people's attention. Try not to make it too difficult to spell as your business name, in ideal cases, would also be your website's domain name. Generic names might sound cute at times, but the law generally doesn't approve its use as a business name.

Pay Your Taxes

Legitimacy may be established earlier on, but it's also something you have to consistently prove. One way of doing so is by paying your taxes properly and on time. Customers in general have greater respect for home based businesses managed by diligent taxpayers and they're quicker to trust such businesses, too.

Be meticulous in keeping your books. A home based business is entitled to certain home office benefits as specified by the law but you'll have to submit documentary proof before your deductions can be approved.

Get Accredited

Last but not the least, work hard to obtain a positive rating from the Better Business Bureau; a commendation from the said agency is the best proof you can obtain that yours is indeed a legitimate home based business. You will not be evaluated by the BBB if you don't ask for it. You also have to pay a small fee for the accreditation and yes, you have to pay even if you don't like the end result. Aim to have the BBB OnLine Reliability seal on your website and don't worry, your customers can guarantee that it's not a fake because they can click on the confirmation link redirecting them to the BBB site.

Home Based Businesses From an Average Family Point of View!

This is my first article on home based business so if you want to succeed and get out of your financial debt and make some realistic extra money just pay attention! I was currently in the same situation that you are currently at now now knowing how to make it to the next month living pay check to pay check. Until I started seeing how much money people was making with a work at home job. A work at home job would be just what I needed for a second source of income . And you know what it turn out great. I was always taught that if you just believe in your self and the good Lord! Everything else will follow!

I have been searching the Internet to come up with a second source of income and I have come up with quite a few. But most of them are trying to either lure you in for the kill or charge you anywhere from $50 to thousands of dollars just to get started. I can say this I have personally found out the hard way on quite a few resulting in losing thousands of dollars and bad credit. Boy what a bomber. One of the worst ones out their is a credit card site where they say you can make anywhere from 1 thousand dollars a month to 50 thousands a month. But I am not going to disclose the name of the site. The CEO was a very powerful speaker He sure did know how to lure us in. Boy did me and my wife fall into it. They seen us coming a mile away. Fortunate after this long journey of pain knot know my head from the other end.

The advice that I give to everybody that reads this Article about Home based business needs to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing. Be careful and sleep on it for a day, and the next day if you still think that is a good program then go ahead and buy them by all means. But make sure you do your homework before you submit to any make money on the Internet program. Or you can learn the hard way like I did. I have found a few to make some realistic extra money. Making a program to produce massive amounts of cash is not an easy job!Their isn't program that I have ran across that will generate massive amounts of cash without doing homework. Since I'm spending so much time on the Internet I was looking for a Home based business that works. I thought it would be good for me to see if it was at least possible to make money on the Internet.

Guess what I found some of the best home based business programs .Boy now that I have found them how would I promote them? Well after I done research on my business and how to bring it up to the top ranking . I first tried adwords but after weeks of using them I still didn't get to the top. So I started going solo and doing everything by research. My first thing that I did was go a search term for keywords for my web site. After that I had to make sure that the keywords was relevant to my web site. After that and I was happy with that I had to come up with a good and catchy name for my home page , I did research to make sure that it was a very unusually one and it wasn't being used and I think that I cane up with the perfect home based business name and was very happy.

The next thing to do was to create an article to announce to the world that my web site was up and running. The reason that you do this is article generally tend to give a higher ranking than regular web pages. And article can give your home based business new life and on top of this its free. Their are free web site optimization out their. That in itself along with keyword optimization will help your site ranking. After all these things are done to publish your home based business after that all you have to do now is getting back links . Before you get back links make sure its in the same business market that you are currently in it will bring up your ranking with search engines. The more the merry. You can manually submit your site to search engines it is a very long process but it is possible and can be done. So you really don't have to pay for most of these things unless you have a lot of money to just waste. If you do all these things your ranking will go up and after this all you have to do is fine tune everything! What do I mean by fine tuning your home based business opportunity you ask? That means getting the appropriate keywords for every page of your work at home job. And every page that you have must be optimize for better search engine results. You want good search engine results for your home business.

Good results means more money and more products being sold. Now you see why it is very important for you to have good key words optimization. All this will insure an very productive work at home job. With a very productive home based business you can do a lot! But this isn't going to be an easy task. It could take anywhere from 1 to numerous hours to get everything just right for the search engines to pick it up. Ensure that you don't have any broken links will help out a lot when the search engines search your site and they come across a broken link and they stop in their tracks. That could cost your home based job thousands of dollars just for that mess up.

After you are up and running and need to know how your home based business is tracking as far as search engines I suggest that you type in one of your main keywords and see where your home based business is located on the Internet. Their is a lot of things that run in conjunction with web site optimization for your home based job. That brings up the page reverence in conjunction with your keywords did you know for every keyword that you use for your home based business that you need to have a web page in conjunction with that keyword. That got your attention about doing your research on your home based business! To check the amount of traffic that a key word receives type in the symbol ~ it is right under the escape key. I recommend some of the top key words and some of the lower ranking ones to cover all angles of your home based business. This way you would have maximum conversion for your home based business. Well that's about covers it about how to get the most from your home based business. Home based business from family man! Good luck!

Home Based Business - Why Starting Part-Time is the Smart Way to Success

With the development of various technologies and with low start up costs it has become much easier today for Entrepreneurs to start a Home Based Business. It is estimated that in USA alone there are over 40 million Home Based Businesses. Home Based Businesses represent 63% of all Small Businesses. Furthermore over 75% of these businesses are operated on a part-time basis.

Some of the reasons generally attributed for starting a Home Based Business are; the fulfillment of a dream, the necessity for an additional income or to have a back up income in the event of losing the present secure job. A reason that is more universal is that most people love to own and run a Home Based Business and would like to experience the thrill and excitement of operating a business from home either full- time or part-time. The majority of those who come under the last category are often under the misconception that it needs very little effort to operate a business from home.

If you have an idea of starting a Home Based Business it is advisable that you should start by running it on a part-time basis while continuing to work on your full-time job. There are several very compelling reasons for adopting this part-time business strategy. I shall enumerate the most important ones below.

1. In spite of your enthusiasm and determination to succeed in your Home Based Business, your attempt could end up in failure for various reasons. In such an event you could always fall back on your full-time job. Talking about failure can be disconcerting to some but you have to be prepared for any eventuality.

2. By starting as a part-time business, your investment both in finance and time will naturally be small thus minimizing the risk involved.

3. While in the process of establishing your Home Based Business, you still have to settle your monthly bills. It is the full-time job that can help you tide over this situation especially during the early months of your part-time business. If you start making profits early in your business then build up a reserve fund to start your full-time home based business.

4. The very thought of your having a regular full-time job with a steady income will give you the confidence to take a reasonable amount of risk in your part-time home based business. This will not be possible otherwise.

5. The presence of a full-time job means that you will not be under excess pressure to perform in your pat-time business for your survival. You can learn business skills, acquire business knowledge and grow gradually at your own pace.

6. By holding on to your full-time job you can continue to enjoy the benefits of health insurance, leave and other benefits till you establish yourself in your part-time business.

7. In the event of sustaining loses in your business during the first year or two; these could be written off when submitting your tax returns.

8. It is much easier to obtain bank loans, credit card facilities and other financial benefits for your business while you are in employment. Why not take advantage of this and grow your home based business while you are in employment.

9. If your intention is to become a home based business entrepreneur one day, then make use of your full-time job and lay the foundation for your home based business by making the necessary contacts with people who could be useful to your future business and could also end up as customers. You should of course ensure that your actions do not come in conflict with the Management policies of your employer.

10. Quitting your full-time job one day and starting a full-time home based business the following day could end up in chaos and disaster unless you have very strong support from experienced entrepreneurs. On the other hand if done gradually transition from full time job to full time home based business becomes much easier.

Having said the above, it has to be mentioned that there are ofcource certain disadvantages in the method indicated.

Doing a full-time job and running a part-time home based business can be strenuous and you can experience burnout and consequently neglect either you business, job or even both.

Excessive indulgence in your part-time business can eventually lead to under performing in your full-time job, thereby creating problems with your Boss or Employer.

You will have to sacrifice much of your precious family time for the sake of your home based business.

Success in your home based business or for that matter in any business does not come easily. It requires hard work, sacrifice, dedication and determination. Above all you have to be passionate about what you are doing.

Many great businesses have grown from small beginnings including the Giant Amazon.com. Start sowing the seeds of your home based business while you are in employment, watch it germinate, look after it with tender care, be passionate about it and watch it bearing the fruits of your labor. Enjoy the fruits of your labor and when the time is ripe, quit your full time job. That's it, keep growing and establish yourself as a successful home based business entrepreneur. This then is the Smart way to Success.

Perfectionism, Death of a Business - Home Based Business Issues

Do you spend more time planning than doing? Do you stay off task because you're too busy reading how-to articles? Do you find yourself constantly changing your mind about which direction to take your company? There's a word for this type of inaction. It's called analysis paralysis - and it will be the death of your business.

Some people who suffer from analysis paralysis think of themselves as perfectionists. Sadly, perfectionism is like the worst micro-managing boss in the world. It makes you go over your work time and again, worrying if it's good enough or if you're making the right decision. Of course you should do your best, but when you spent too much time planning and revising rather than acting, your productivity will decline. And businesses with low productivity don't stay alive. Here are three simple rules for avoiding analysis paralysis.

Don't Expect Perfection

The secret to perfection lies in maximizing your assets and minimizing your flaws. Nobody's actually perfect, and nobody expects you to be, either. Do what you're good at, and do it well. If you're an outgoing type, start discussions on your blog or Facebook page. If you're more technical, create a video or add a new marketing widget to your web site. When faced with tasks that you don't excel at, either take the time to learn how to do them well, or outsource them to someone who can do them better - freeing up your time to focus on your strong points.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

If you've viewed a web page in the past twenty years, you know that typos and misspellings are just a part of the Internet. Unless you're an English major, a few mistakes probably won't make you click away from a web site. The same is true for your online business. People come to your site to find valuable content that makes their lives easier. If you've made a few grammatical mistakes, so what? Just do your best and don't sweat the rest.

This applies to other parts of your business as well. If you make a mistake that won't cause any harm, don't draw attention to it. Just fix it if you can and vow to do better next time. If it's a serious mistake, own up to it and offer a genuine apology to anyone who was affected. Then figure out a way to prevent yourself from making the mistake again.

Do Get Things Done

Analysis paralysis does just what the name says: it paralyzes you. The hours you spend tweaking and nitpicking your work are hours you could be using to move your business forward. While you're busy second-guessing your business plan, your competitors are busy stealing your market share. To keep your business alive, you've got to put your brand out there. It doesn't matter if it's perfect. What matters is that it's seen.

Don't let opportunities pass you by while you're paralyzed by indecision. Break away from analysis paralysis by freeing yourself from distractions, focusing on your productivity, and giving yourself permission to stop stressing over small details.

Starting a Photography Business - Home Based vs. Studio Space

When deciding on a place to run your successful photography business, there are a few options:

Home Based Photography Studio

Many photographers are deciding to run their photo businesses out of their homes. This has several advantages:

o Low overhead - no rent

o No commuting time

o Your work space is tax deductible

o Great if you have kids at home

o Family oriented and relaxed

Disadvantages of a home studio include:

o Lack of sufficient space

o You have to keep a clean house at all times!

o Having strangers in your home

o Some people may view a home studio as not being a "real" business

Buying / Renting a Photography Studio

If your business increases and you can no longer operate out of your home, then it is time to look into purchasing or renting a space for your photography business. Advantages of renting or buying a studio space include:

o More exposure for your business (window displays, foot traffic, drive by traffic)

o More adequate space for your equipment and props

o More adequate space for parking

o Some may view you as having a "real" photography business

o Your work life and home life can be kept separate

Disadvantages include:

o Higher overhead (rent or mortgage) eats your profits

o Commute time

o High prices may keep you out of more desirable neighborhoods or shopping centers

o A less desirable location may mean that you have to lower your prices

Other options

Many photographers choose to shoot "on location" only. This means that they either go to the client's home or shoot mainly at outdoor locations. This can work nicely because it allows you to avoid renting a space and keeps clients out of your home.

Other photographers may choose to temporarily rent a studio space for a day or more. Some photo studios rent out their space on an hourly basis, but if this isn't available in your town, consider renting a small conference room at a local hotel (this would be good for a portrait event where you will be photographing numerous families).

A New Year, a New Business - Home Based Business Ideas

First off, I wish all of you who read this article a very happy, prosperous and successful new year! And for many, including myself, what better way to herald in the new year could there be than to learn something new and build yourself (or expand) a profitable, low risk online business?.

Here are a few Home Based Business Ideas that I've had over the festive period to help ease your mind to the questions you may have about this exiting new thought you've had. It is exciting isn't it? You, the boss of yourself, controller of your destiny, captain of your own ship and all that kind of stuff, :).

But, you may ask "Where do I start?". This is a perfectly normal question, as many people do not have the so called 'business acumen' that many say is necessary to open, operate and succeed in business, whether online or off. To this I say... Relax!. The thought of stepping in to the world of home based business may be daunting, but it's not. All that's needed is:

A willingness to learn
Dedication to yourself
A desire to succeed

Now, this is only a short list, I could go on about the necessary skills used in everyday business life, but these, surprisingly you will teach yourself. For now, a commitment to yourself and some useful information will fuel the fires of determination to carry you to your goals. Now remember goals and planning are very important and I would like to cover these with you in a separate article, so for now we will cover some basics and go through some Home Based Business Ideas that will get you thinking and motivated.

Low Start up Costs

Depending on your circumstances this may not be particularly important, however during these tough times, we all need to learn to squeeze the penny that little extra. So looking for something that is low in cost to establish could be very important. The internet is packed to full with low start-up cost businesses, but which would be right for you?

Low Risk

We need to be looking for a low risk business, something that won't hurt if everything went horribly wrong, or in-fact could never go wrong. That was what I was looking for, something that was 'stable' and had longevity. We'll need to avoid the obvious scams and get rich quick schemes, although they sound wonderful, they only lead to an empty wallet a shattered expectations. Remember, in this world, if it sounds too good to be true... It is!. The only way to get rich is to work for it, and that's the stone cold truth.

Recession Proof

Here's another plus of working from home on the internet. A bricks and mortar business relies on the stability of it's local economical climate and it's populace. When things start to get a little tight, so do people and sales can plummet. However, in the world of the internet, the world is your market.

Again this is of huge importance. Millions of people join the internet daily, most looking for information and products to buy, and if you have something to sell, that they are looking for, you can earn a good living, doing what you wanted to and enjoying yourself.

Easy to Learn

So you don't have the experience and skills? That doesn't matter. Fortunately in this day and age things can be learn quickly and easily, methods can be taught from anywhere in the world, what with home study courses available and online learning, articles, eBooks and websites full of useful information available to anyone who looks hard enough.

So we're also looking for something that can be learnt easily, quickly and efficiently. That's the point right? To start operating as soon as possible, not be stuck struggling to learn the basics, not get anywhere and get disheartened?

What to Sell?

Without a doubt, in my opinion, the very best thing to sell online is information. Useful, how-to information. And this is a lot easier than you think.

What are your hobbies? Could you show others how to do them? Could you tell me how? It's as easy as that to create quality informative how-to products that sell - and sell a lot. You get to teach something you love. You do it once, and you sell it over and over again. In fact, on the Internet, you can sell it 24/7 - even while you're on holiday.

Small Business, Home-Based-Business

Want an easy way to get your existing customers to buy more?

Simply follow-up.

Last year for the first time I purchased a 1 year supply of my contacts online. Even though I could see my supply getting low I kept forgetting to place another order. Just in the nick of time I received a reminder email from the online contacts company letting me know I was at the end of my supply.

They were right!

Not only was I out of contacts they also reminded me my prescription was about to expire too. And if I didn't act fast -no fresh supply of contacts- without an unscheduled trip to the eye doctor for an exam. Geez!

I instantly placed an order for another year's supply of contacts.

Problem solved!

What did that simple email do for me? Saved me time and the added expense of an early eye exam. What did that simple email do for the online contacts company? Provided an easy solution which resulted in another sale with no extra effort!
