- They will tell you that it is hard work, and takes a lot of your time.
- There will be many setbacks as you get going.
- Money will not come in for a while and when it does you will need to spend some on the office and so it will sometimes be years before you make any real money for yourself.
- The other problems which come along are that the world changes and suddenly your products are not wanted any more and you have to change.
Well let’s be realistic.
All of this is true, both of a home business and of any business. So did you think that businesses like Marks and Spencer were always successful. They started with a wheel barrow from which they sold things. Apple started in a garage. IBM started like this as well.
This should actually give you hope, because if they can do it, why not you?
I can hear the questions though – why would I want to do all this when I can stay in my 9 to 5 job and just take the pay packets at the end of the month or week?
- This is also true but what if the day job ceases to exist?
- What happens when you are judged to be too old to work there or your company folds or you have to retire – what do you do then?
Let’s look at creating your own business- what are the benefits?
Firstly it’s yours – it’s an investment and you can use it or sell it but it’s yours and no one can take it away from you (normally). If you don’t have any assets this could be the one that helps you in retirement – you build it up and sell it to live on the proceeds.
Secondly the costs of running your own business from home are minimal compared to setting up like an Apple Company. You already own or rent your home, and you pay for the electricity and so forth. If you now work from home there is no additional costs for premises, electricity (well minimal extra costs), and minimal cost of equipment because what you need you already have – the internet, a computer of sorts.
Thirdly With the WEB and a web based business you don’t have to fund a lot of things which you need to sell. You don’t have to fill a garage full of widgets which will cost you and then you won’t realise the profit until you sell them. At Hudson Rickman we work on line at affiliate marketing and we don’t have any stock – this means that our business is low risk which is good.
Fourthly and this is important, I get to spend lots more time with my family because I am not travelling. When I worked in the corporate world I was away from home more than 80% of the time and often when I got home I was on the phone and or I was just so tired. A home business is a real benefit not just for the family, if I work at home, but also for my body as I am not so stressed from the travelling.
Fifthly I can get training on this quite easily. At Hudson Rickman we use Wealthy Affiliate and this costs us less than a dollar a day to learn how to build a business and also we get back up from thousands of WA experts who have done it before. Usually when you start a business you are on your own period. Not so with WA.
So there are advantages then?
There are real advantages to building your own home based business – so why not give it a try. You can start this in your spare time and when it has grown then you can leave your 9 to 5 job, but not before.
Hope this helped – if we can be any help to you at Hudson Rickman to get you started let us know by leaving a message below.
