Why Start a Home Business

Why Start a Home Business
Copyright © Craig Warren

Working from home is a dream for many but actually going
ahead and starting a home business is very difficult. So
what makes so many people want to do it and why would
you ever try such a crazy thing? Here are some common
reasons and some things to consider.

You Can Build Your Great Idea

It suddenly hit you like a bolt of lightning: you’ve
thought of a great business idea. This is perhaps the
number one reason that people go into business from
home. They’ve come up with something great that they
really believe in, but can’t afford to rent any business
premises. It does depend on what the business is but
working from home is often ideal in these situations.

Remember though that even the best ideas take hard
work to become a reality. The kind of ideas that are
good for a home-based business are ones that can
become at least partly real quickly, and start bringing
in an income you shouldn’t sit at home for a year
working on something that’s making you nothing

You Can Make Your Hobby a Job

Most people have something that they’re really
passionate about and would spend the rest of their
life doing if they could, just for the enjoyment of
it. Getting paid for doing what you love is obviously
appealing even if you only earn a living wage, it’d
be your idea of paradise.

Make sure though that you’d be able to take it if you
had to make a living from your passion. It’s the things
were closest to that hurt us the most think of how you
might feel if no-one buys what you’ve made, or if they
send it back and with a note saying what rubbish, I
demand a refund! Can you cope with your hobby
becoming commercial?

You’re Tired of Your Boss

It seems like everyone hates their boss. They try to
pretend like they’re your friend, but they’re not fooling
anyone, are they? You’re forced to work to pointless
deadlines and targets. Anytime you spot a better way
of doing something you’re told that its impractical or
worse, that its great but the stupid way of doing things
is already established and policy.

What you might not realize is that being your own boss
requires quite a lot of willpower. If there was no-one
to make you get up in the morning and do any work,
would you? Your home is supposed to be a place of
rest and entertainment and when its full of the
equipment and temptation to do anything but work,
working there can be hard.

You Want to Spend More Time with Your Family

You feel like all you do is go to work, come home and
then sit around, to tired to do anything fun with your
family. If you have children, they seem to be growing
up so fast and you’re missing it all because you
have to go out and work.

Of course, the flip side here is that you might just end
up spending too much time with your family, while
you’re trying to work. When everyone knows you’ll be in
the house all day, they’ll probably ask you to do all
sorts of unimportant things, just because you’re available.
It’s hard to say no and before you know it, you’re doing the
job of a full-time housewife instead of what you set out
to do.

You Don’t Like Wasting Time and Money Commuting

After all, once you get to the office, what is there
anyway? Offices are dreary environments and terrible to
work in traveling for hours there and back and spending
a significant proportion of your wages to do it seems
completely pointless (especially if you live in the
middle of nowhere). If you could work from home,
think of the time you’d save and time is money, isn’t

Don’t be surprised, however if you start to feel trapped
in your home, since you never leave it. Can you find
good ways to get away from it all?

But Don’t Be Put Off

While the list of warnings for working at home might look
long, a list of warnings about working in an office would
surely be longer. As long as you stay on your guard, you
can get all the benefits of working from home without
falling into any of the traps.
