The development of a home-based business is generally a very personal decision simply because it involves moving away from all that is familiar toward something that is profound in the amount of unanswered questions.

There is risk involved in going it alone. There is risk in being the one solely responsible for the administration of your own business. There is financial risk if the venture should fail.


There are rewards in being your own boss. There are rewards in being able to answer only to yourself in matters of business. There are financial rewards should the venture succeed.

The growth of home-based business may well resemble the early American pioneers who ventured west looking for a better life. There was great struggle and not everyone made it, but those that did managed to work hard to carve out a life that was filled with both adventure and satisfaction.

The comparison is so appropriate for home-based business owners. In times past we may have only thought of home-based businesses as being a farmer or a rancher, but today it a field being pioneered by hearty souls in search of a better life for their families. Not everyone will make it, but for those that do it’s a journey filled with adventure and satisfaction.

Individuals are discovering that the very things they have enjoyed as hobbies may be moved to the forefront and given a new status as ‘business venture’. There are those who are making a living pet sitting, or providing freelance photography work. Individuals are writing from home or managing a home-based accounting firm.

Today’s business office may be the very room we once called a den. The overhead cost is significantly reduced, the environment is very comfortable and the hours are left up to the business owner.

Many are seeking just such a lifestyle as a means of liberating a 9-5 mentality. The business suit may be packed away and the hours one works may be scattered over a longer period of time or can be adjusted to allow for the intake of life.

Many home-based business owners will say it is very hard work, but the benefits to both individual and family make it a lifestyle more and more aspire to grasp.

The pioneering spirit is alive and well and is prospering behind the screen of millions of personal computers that are providing the link between a revolutionary thought and the realization of a 21st century hope for a better future.
