Have you ever dreamed of quitting your job and starting your own business, thereby becoming your own boss? Well, thanks to modern technology, it’s more doable now than it’s ever been, as more and more people are finding out. Yes, every new business venture involves some risks, but those risks are often outweighed by the advantages.

Here are nine good reasons why you should start a home business:

1. You can work when you want to work.

With a home business, you can decide for yourself what your working hours will be. If you only want to work when your kids are in school, have at it. If you like to sleep in, you can start work later. If you need to do something, you can give yourself the time off. As long as your work’s getting done, you can be flexible and work whenever you want.

2. You can work from anywhere you like.

A home business comes with the freedom to go or move anywhere you like without having to ask permission, look for a new job, or miss a minute of work. Modern technologies, such as laptops and high-speed Internet connections, make it possible to be as mobile as you want to be. So, don’t like the cold? Head south for the winter. Don’t like the heat? Head north for the summer.

3. You don’t have to commute to and from work.

Did you ever stop to think about all the time you waste sitting in traffic or on some mode of mass transportation getting to and from work every day? At an average of some twenty-four minutes each way, according to a recent survey, it’s the equivalent of five full work weeks every year. Time that could much better be spent at home, building your own business instead of someone else’s.

4. You don’t have to get dressed up to go to work.

Having to wear high heels or a tie every day starting to get old? Well, when you work from home, you can wear whatever you darn well please… or nothing at all if you like. 🙂

5. You can save money.

By eliminating your commute, you’ll save money on car expenses, if you drive, or bus or train fares, if you use mass transportation. Since you don’t have a dress code at your home office, you can save money on clothes. As an added bonus, a home business allows you to legally convert numerous non-deductable personal expenses to tax-deductable business expenses, saving you even more money at tax-time.

6. You can finally start eating better.

Most folks will tell you they’d really like to start eating better. However, when you’re being pressured at work and don’t have time for lunch and/or working long hours and don’t have time to make dinner, it’s a lot easier said than done, isn’t it? If you work at home, you’re less likely to turn to junk food as the answer and more likely to make healthier food choices.

7. You’ll have far less stress.

When you work from home, you don’t have a boss to contend with, office politics to deal with, or drama kings or queens to upset you. Any stress you do have will be self-imposed and thus, totally under your control.

8. You can get more done in less time.

Think of all the time you lose every single day at work in idle chit-chat with co-workers, about such weighty topics as last night’s game or who’s doing what with whom, and trivial interruptions and what you could accomplish without those distractions and interruptions. Without them, you could easily accomplish more working ten hours a week at home than you are now working forty hours a week at the office.

9. You __________.

Fill in the blank with your reason. We’re all different. Though the eight reasons above are eight of the best reasons there are for starting a home business, the single best reason is the one that’s most important to you. It might be you can finally get paid what you’re worth, make more money, or spend more time with your family. Whatever’s important to you!

These are but a few of the many possible reasons why you should start a home business. Whatever your reason is, keep it firmly in mind before, during, and after making the transition from having a boss to being your own boss. You can do it and knowing why you want to do it will propel you to success and carry you over any obstacles that may arise in the process.
