Even with today’s relaxed corporate atmosphere and major businesses like Best Buy and Microsoft promoting more employee freedom, nothing can beat the simple pleasure of working for yourself, from the home. However, many people confuse working from home with laziness and the dream of not having to work at all. This is simply not the case. Many, if not most, times, the home business owner will work much longer and harder hours than the out of the house professional, at least in the beginning. However, there is no denying that the pleasures of working from home are vast. Here are a few of the reasons you might consider starting your own home based business. No more answering to the man. Obviously, starting your own home business eliminates the boss factor. You are your own boss. If you want to work overtime, you can work overtime. If you don’t, you won’t. If you’re feeling sick and can’t do your work that day, you won’t have to explain it to anyone but yourself (well, and perhaps your customers). If you feel like you deserve a raise, it will be up to you to make more money. The freedom factor is one of the major forces behind many people’s decision to start their own home business. Set your own hours. If you’ve always been something of a night owl, this could be your chance to shine. If you’ve always regretted not being able to attend little Suzie or Johnny’s school functions, you now have the freedom to work your hours around them, rather than being stuck in a cubicle from 9 to 5 every day. If you are an amateur fisherman and you’ve always resented being trapped in an office when the weather is ripe for a couple of hours out on the lake, this is your chance to take advantage of those times. Spend more time with your family. Leaving your kids in day care or with a babysitter can be one of the most stressful decisions a young parent can make. But it is often necessary if both parents have to be out the house all day slaving away for someone else. With a home business, this decision eliminates itself. Now you can divide your time between business and family, and not miss out on the important developmental stages of your young children. Running your own home business is hard work, and making as much as you would otherwise make in the corporate world requires a lot of patience and determination. It can happen, but it will take time. Still, the pleasure of working from home are numerous, and the rewards can be worth it if you stick to it and work hard. Good luck.
