Home Business - 3 Reasons Why You Should Consider One Today

Today more than ever before people are looking to start a home business. When you think about what has happened in our economy over the last year who can blame them. High unemployment, foreclosures, big companies filing bankruptcy, is there really anything secure anymore.

People are turning to the home business arena to find the security that they used to find in the big companies. But are you ready to take that plunge or better yet why should you consider working from home? Here are three reasons for starting a home business.

1-- You are the boss. - The best thing about a home business is you are now in control. Think about what your boss does now at your job. They usually tell you what time you need to be at work and what time you can leave. They tell you when you can go to lunch and when to come back. They tell you when you can go on vacation and for how long. If you are sick you have to call them and let them know you are not coming in. This seems more like a master than a boss, but that's what we've signed up for.

When you are the boss you are in control of all of these things. Imagine you can go on vacation when you want for as long as you want. If you want to work 3 hours today you just do it. If you want to go to lunch for 2 hours you just do it. If you or your child gets sick you take them to the doctor, no one to call. You now have control over your time and also your life.

2-- The ability to do what you love and make money doing it. - Studies show that approximately 68% of people in the work force are working in jobs and careers they just don't like. Why would you want to do that?

By starting your own home business you have the ability to choose something you enjoy doing and get paid to do it. Imagine what it would be like to get up everyday, walk from your bed to your living room, click on your computer and you are at work. The good thing is that this isn't just work but your own home business. You're the boss, you set the rules and best of all you make the money. Sound like a dream but it can be reality.

3-- The tax advantages. - Here is a question. If you work at your current job and you come home to do some internet research at home. Can you write off your computer as a business expense? The answer is no. If you start a home business and work from home, using that same computer now becomes a tax write off. In fact a whole lot of other things can become tax write offs.

Here is a short list. Your phone, car, rent/mortgage, internet, cable bill, car, insurance, supplies you buy, magazine subscriptions, the list just keeps going. In fact, everything you use in your house has the potential to become a tax write off.

This even extends beyond your house. Imagine the meals you eat, dry cleaning, even that vacation you take all have the potential to become viable business expenses. Knowing this one fact alone could save you thousands of dollars every year in taxes. (Be sure to get an accountant (CPA) because he will know what can and can't be as well as how much of each to be deducted).

Today you can start a home business and enjoy the benefits of working from home. There are many options available to you and most can be started with low capital investments. The opportunities are there! GO GET THEM!
