Are you sure you want to run an online home business? There are no recognized schools or universities that teach you how to start or run an online work at home business. Most of the time you learn by trial and error, so why would anyone want to work at home?
The answer, in a nutshell, is “for the benefits!” In today’s global market there are quite a few benefits. Here are just a few:
You can revolve your schedule around your young kids needs and not miss a single one of those “aha” moments as they are growing up.
You have no traffic jams! Your commute is from one room of your house to another and you don’t even have to dress up to go to work, assuming, of course your work does not involve video-conferencing!
The set-up costs are considerably lower than with an offline business. Start up costs between $100-$500 are quite normal.
Your market is global. Anybody with a computer and an internet connection anywhere in the world is your customer. Just this benefit alone outweighs most of the others.
And the corollary is also beneficial. Your business is totally portable! If you have access to a computer and the Internet anywhere in the world, you can keep on top of your business with whatever level of diligence you choose.
When you are successful the profits are HUGE!
