Home Based Business? 6 Reasons Why That’s a Great Idea


Have you ever thought about owning your own home based business?

I never really thought about it until fairly recently. I did the typical thing: went to school, then went into the workforce. I never questioned it, I just went along in life doing what I thought I was supposed to do. It wasn’t until I found Robert Kiyosaki and read his books. Only then, were my eyes open to a whole new world!

You mean I can be an entrepreneur and have my own business?!

I began my journey and never looked back.

If you’re contemplating starting your own home based business, read on and I will list for you the reasons why you should work from home.


Home Based Business? 6 Reasons Why That's a Great Idea

  • Your own personal freedom –

This is my favorite reason. You can do what you want, when you want, how you want…..why? Because you are the boss! If you want to start work at 11:00 am or work in your p.j.’s, you can. You can set your own hours and take a vacation or trip to the doctor’s office without having to ask permission. If you’re a night owl like my business partner is, you can work all night and got to bed at 5:00 a.m. The bottom line is that you make the rules.

  • More Productivity –

You have the opportunity to be more productive and get more done with the time you’ll have not commuting. One of my biggest complaints was all the time I felt I was wasting commuting every day and being stuck in traffic. I spent any where from 2 – 3 hours depending on the traffic, a day in the car with all that time wasted.

  • Tax Advantages –

(Another fave) The government actually encourages business ownership by offering tax cuts to business owners. You can deduct a percentage of mortgage/ rent, bills, property tax, insurance, phone, internet and more. This is of course, is based on a percentage of your home that is represented by your home office. (seek the aide of a professional – I am not giving advice). You can also deduct office expenses, business expenses such as software and education, and others.

  • Overhead costs can be kept low –

Working at home, you won’t be paying rent for an office somewhere else, and less wear and tear on your vehicle since you aren’t driving to and from work every day.

  • Flexibility –

Working from home, you will have flexibility of your schedule and where you want to work from. You can pretty much take your laptop and work from anywhere.

  • More time to spend with friends and family –

As mentioned above, no more commuting and clocking in for eight hours gives you more time in your life to do what you want. You can spend more time with your loved ones, on hobbies or talents.

These are just some of the benefits to having your own work from home business. 6 reasons to get you started down your path to being a home based business owner.

  1. Great list Jodene! I don’t know which one is my favorite. I absolutely love my freedom in being my own boss and I have worked out of my home for most of my career. So for sure both of those are tops on my list. Yet the tax advantages of having my own business are just so awesome can’t leave that one off the list! πŸ™‚ Working from anywhere is true, not sitting in traffic reduces my stress for sure and spending time with those people I want to when I want to is invaluable. Thanks for sharing your awesome list, seems I have the same one. Best Regards, Wendy

      Thank you Wendy!
      I started to put my favorite one is…in front of them all then realized it was too much. I love all these reasons and there are more I didn’t even mention. Personal freedom is a great one, and the fact that I can use non traffic time being productive is awesome. I love that you’ve worked from home as much as you have. You are an inspiration!
