The Benefits Of Having A Home Based Business

Aug 17, 2007
Many full time employees are beating the system by opening a home based business. They are no longer confined to a small cubicle in a perpetual maze of dividers of a corporate building.

So what are some of the advantages to having a home based business? First of all, you can make your own hours. Your schedule is as flexible as you are. Second of all, if you need to see the dentist, make an appointment whenever you like. No more waiting around for that first appointment of the day or trying to find an office open after five.

If your kids have a soccer game? Not a problem. You can work around it. And then of course you have that cable repairman that says he'll show up sometime between 11 am and 4 pm. No problem. You can tell him, "That's fine." and really mean it because you're home all day anyways.

Working from home means that you can now sleep longer because you no longer have that commute to the office. As a result you will feel more rested during the day.
And you will be saving a lot of money by working from home. There's no need to buy that new suit and impressive pair of shoes. Your cat doesn't care how professional you look.

You can save a money by eating last night's leftovers for lunch and buying snacks in bulk at the grocery store instead of making trips to gas stations and fast food restaurants. You will have more money for vacations. You might even save enough to buy your own cappuccino maker and say goodbye to your local $5-a-cup coffee shop.

Remember the last time you took your car in servicing and your mechanic told you to start car shopping, right. Just think how long your vehicle will last without those daily trips to and from work. Save gas money, get your oil changed twice a year, never replace your tires again! All great reasons to have a home based business.

The government also gives home businesses fringe benefits in the form of tax breaks. And getting that computer you've been wanting for months is actually good for business, it can mean better tax breaks at the end of the year. Get tax refunds for your telephone bill, rent and other overhead expenses. And believe it or not, it's completely legal.

The advantages of having a home based business are nearly countless. If a traditional office environment is leaving you stagnant, a home business may be just what the doctor ordered.
