|A Home Based Business - Who, Why, When and
Where To Start?
by: Kanaga Siva
Everyone loves a Home Based Business Opportunity. I love mine and
you cannot be an exception I guess! So let us start from the
beginning and explore as to Who ,Why, When and Where you could start
this Business Opportunity using the Internet.
Anyone with a desire or urge to start a Home Based Business can
venture into this field. All you need is a computer and who has not
got one or access to one these days? An elementary knowledge of the
working of a computer and the Internet is sufficient to get started.
Many things can be picked up as you progress. This is what most of
the people do.
The beauty of this Internet Home Business is that Age and Sex,
Race and Religion are no barriers. It is sans borders. Entrepreneurs
living in any part of the world can participate in thousands of
Affiliate programs that are either Regional or Global in nature.
There are many programs that are Free to join! In fact there are
several Affiliate programs that provide Entrepreneurs with Free
Websites and Tools too. You could have your own personal website if
you are prepared to spend a few dollars.
This is a pertinent question indeed! Some of the reasons for
starting a Home Based Business are:
- A desire to earn an Additional income to supplement the
- A desire to run your own home business and not depend on
your Boss's pay packet
- Dissatisfaction with your present Boss or your employment.
- Being out of work or laid off.
- Circumstances forcing you to be with the family or ageing
- A Childhood ambition to have your own business.
You can start a Home Based Business at any age, It can be at
twenty, fifty or even at seventy. What matters most is that you have
to be sufficiently motivated and have the urge and desire to do it.
Allocating two hours a day for your cherished dream should not be
difficult to start with. In fact about twenty hours a week would be
useful and advantageous. I am aware of people who have retired from
active work but are keeping themselves gainfully occupied by doing
an Internet Home Based Business.
To be successful in life you should have a Plan, more so for your
Internet Business Opportunity. Draw up a short term and a long term
plan for what you intend to achieve. Initially draw up a Plan for
the first three months to start with and try to stick with it, come
While you are at the computer, Pop ups and other advertisements
can and will divert your attention from your objective. Do not run
after the goose that is going to lay the golden egg for you and
waste your valuable time.
Top Marketers are brilliant people who spend much time and money
in researching how to divert your attention and I can tell you, they
are not going to fail! I should know! I have been in the marketing
business for several years though not in the internet field . Hence
you should remain completely focused on your work.
Unlike in a brick and mortar business, to operate a Business from
home, the Home Based Business Entrepreneur needs no separate
building. Your physical place of business will be your very home and
no high start up fees is necessary. The computer can be set up
wherever you like so that it is convenient to work with and free
from noises and distraction. Your success will to some extent depend
on the support you receive from the members of your family. The
spouse can be of great assistance by reading and researching
resources and articles and doing a lot of other preliminary work,
which can substantially reduce the number of hours you have to spend
on the computer. In other words your spouse can be your partner in
your Home Based Business.
The greatest benefit of this Internet Business Opportunity is
that it works twenty-four hours(24/7) a day and is Portable.
Wherever you travel, within the country or to any part of the world
your Business travels with you. You have to carry your lap top
along, that's it. Otherwise find access to a computer. It is as
simple as that.
Why wait? Start working on your Home Based Business seriously.
Work at Home, Work from Home or Work away from Home and reap the
benefits the Internet Revolution has showered on you, the Internet
