The Top 5 Reasons To Have A Home Business

I’m sure we’ve all had our fair dose of Mondayitis, dragging ourselves off to work when we really would rather stay in bed.  What if you could just stay in bed and work when and where you are ready to work not when the boss dictates you have to?  Having your own Home Business gives you the opportunity to do just that. 


Here are my Top 5 Reasons To Have A Home Business:

1. Flexibility
Having a Home Business means that you work the hours that suit you.  Night Owl?  Then you can work in the middle of the night in your pyjamas and sleep the day away.  Kids at school?  You can take them to and from school and never miss a sports day or school play and you can still make money.  No more having to take a whole day off to wait for a plumber that won’t give you a definite time that they will turn up to fix your taps.  With a laptop and mobile internet you can also work where you want.  No longer do you have to stare out the office window on a sunny day longing to be outdoors, with your own business you can sit in the sun on the beach and still get your work done.

2. No Travel
How would you like to travel 20 steps to your desk rather than 20kms?  It is insane how much time people spend commuting to and from work.  Especially these days with traffic getting worse and worse people are wasting more time than ever stuck in their cars when they could be spending doing things that they really want to do rather than staring at the back of the car in front of them.  How much is your time worth?  Say it is $25 an hour.  If you are travelling an hour each way everyday for work that is $50 per day, $250 per week not to mention the ever rising cost of fuel and running a car.  If you were able to spend those 2 hours a day on your own business from home you can get paid for those hours otherwise lost in traffic gridlock.  What would that extra $250 per week mean to you?

3. Reward For Effort
When you have a conventional job your earnings are tied directly to the amount of hours you are physically at work and no matter how productive you are you can never make more money than your boss or your boss’ boss.  Having your own business allows you to have complete control of how much you earn and can work as much or as little as you like.  Working smarter rather than for longer means that you can make more money in less time – how awesome is that?

4. Your Weekends Can Be For Leisure Only
Working from home gives you the opportunity to get all of the mundane household chores done throughout your day rather than having to waste precious time in the evenings or on weekends doing them.  You can put your washing on at breakfast time and hang it out at morning tea.  Mow the lawn or do the groceries at lunchtime and put dinner on at afternoon tea time.  Your family will love you for it and no more missing out on having a great social life.

5. Fewer Distractions
Imagine how much more you can achieve in much less time when your day isn’t being eaten up with: endless meetings that don’t go anywhere; listening to annoying co-workers talk on their phones at full volume; unnecessary group emails; people asking for help they don’t need and the list could go on forever!  Thankfully by having your own Home Business you can avoid this all.
