A recent article published by the Newsweek Magazine stated that experts anticipate fifty percent of American households to be taken over by home internet business when the decade ends.
Apparently, home-based business people have come a long way. Before, home businesses are tagged as second class business ventures. People consider it as nothing more than a hobby. Recent technological and economic trends steadily defy this notion.
Home businesses are easier to manage and do not cost as much as a traditional business start-up does.
More and more people are moved to get involved in this venture judging by the drastic sales increase in computers, desk lamps, printers, telephones and other home office essentials.
Delbenhams department store backs this up after stating that they have experienced 340 percent of sales increase for home office furniture in the past year.
People look into the many advantages of working at home like the ability to make a personal itinerary and not having to dress up for work or answer to a supervisor. A room which has been converted as a home office can also be accounted for tax deduction.
Economy-wise, parents no longer have to employ babysitting services. Transportation and food expenses can also be trimmed down.
Some home entrepreneurs sell products that appeal to their creative side such as Christmas and home decorations, toys, dolls, and quilts. Women sell jewellery, make-up, and lingerie by hosting house parties.
Most men choose to work as tax preparers, real estate salesmen, consultants, architects, and accountants. Other home entrepreneurs work as in internet marketers.
With these diverse options, studies show that home-based internet business steadily expands despite the recession.
People are losing their confidence in traditional employment. According to Emergent Research, 6.6 million American households are already involved in home internet business. Experts call home entrepreneurs as a strong economic force.
