You may be a successful salesperson, but the amount of time it takes for you to make (let alone exceed) your sales quota each month means you’re spending too much time away from your family. You may be a mid-career engineer, or an IT professional stuck in the office all day.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could work at home doing something that allows you to get out and meet new people? Regardless of your current profession, you just want to be able to spend more time with your family, set your own hours and work from home.
A home-based business is probably perfect for you. Here are four reasons why:
1. You can set your own hours.
If you’re already successful in our current career or job, you more than likely have considerable self-discipline. Which is a very good thing – because working from home means you’re going toneed to keep up your game. The very fact that you will be able to set your own hours means… you’re going to have toset those hours and stick with them!
2. You can attend your children’s sports and extracurricular activities.
Many professionals miss their kids’ sporting events, dance recitals, school play appearances, etc. because they often work after hours in order to complete important projects by a deadline.
As a home-based business owner, your boss is a great guy. He knows how hard you will be working as you build your business and serve your customers and he’ll gladly approve your time off. He also knows you will make up those hours at some point, but he trusts you completely to do so on the schedule you choose. You are your boss.
4. You may be able to deduct your home’s general expenses.
As someone who runs ahome-based business opportunity, you may be able to deduct from your taxes many of the costs of owning a home: part of your mortgage/rent, utilities, auto expenses, even health insurance.
