You Should Start A Home Business

Aug 17, 2007
Beginning a home business is the financial time and freedom dream of many of us.

In fact, it has become the ideal for millions of us Earthly citizens.You are reading this article, so the chances are high that you are the one who believes that there is much more to life than just waking up each morning and working the rest of the day for a wage and usually a jerk or two while being totally away from your spouse, children and beloved pets.

There's nothing wrong with working for a wage, at the beginning of your working career, mind you, especially if it pays the bills! However, an increasing number of us e-commerce minded folks are finding that working for someone else is not very rewarding.

After all, as an employee it is not likely that you are being compensated according to your real value to the company. In other words, you only get a small percentage of the fruits of your labors. Your boss and stockholders get the lion's share. Your boss has to do what his bosses tell him to do otherwise he or she will get booted out of your company by the stockholders.

You are frequently restricted from being a greater profit machine for your employer because they demand to make virtually all of the critical decisions in this day and age. Personal growth is now restricted a lot.

Once you realize this, you basically have two choices: you can stay on the same path that you've been for many years as an employee, or you can begin striking out on your own in hopes of getting more out of life and happiness.

Deciding between these two extremes is not easy, but you will have to make the choice at some point or another. Do you want to be someone under the heel of and working for others, or do you want to have other people work for you? Or even just work for yourself?

Do we want our time and energy to be spent in enriching someone else, who could care less about us, or do we want our efforts to benefit you directly? Do you want to spend the rest of your life working for a boss, or as the captain for your own ship in life?

Once you realize that the rewards for employers and employees are significantly different, and that entrepreneurs can expect to have more success than wage earners, then the choice should be easy to make. Right? Having your own home electronic business, being your own person, and having other people work for you is the key to your long term success.

As a wage earner, the amount of money you earn is limited to the number of hours in the day. For example, if you are a secretary getting paid $30 an hour, and you work for a standard eight-hour day, you will earn $240 daily. That's all you'll get, unless you work overtime. The moment you stop working, you stop earning. You personally exchange your time, energy, life and skills for a few bucks.

Now, let's say that you decide to start your own home business instead. Feels better already doesn't it? Because you are an experienced secretary, you know what it takes to be a good one. You hire three young employees and start a service that offers secretarial services to those who need it.

You pay your employees $20 an hour and charge $30 to your clients, netting you a clean $10 for every hour that your employees work - at very little extra effort to you. If all three work for eight hours, then you just made the $240 you used to earn as a secretary yourself - even if you barely lifted your finger. What you're doing now, of course, is exchanging the time, energy, and skills of other people for money - the highway to becoming rich and independent.

Please say this is better for you. I honestly believe Martin Luther King had a very unselfish dream for all of us Americans to have freedom and be our own man or woman.
