Now is the Perfect Time To Start A Home Based Business
|January 9, 2012||Posted by Business4Moms under General Information||
If you haven’t already started a home business, or if you’ve put your business on the backburner, now is the perfect time to start (or restart) your home based business. The poor economy makes it even more vitally important for you and your family to have an additional source of income. It seems like every day another “well established” company is going belly up, laying off workers, and closing it’s doors. What if that was the company you or your spouse worked for? Even if you have adequate savings (as very few do) finding a new job in todays market is tougher than it has been in a long time.
And believe it or not – there are still plenty of customers out there looking for products and services that many home based businesses can offer! Especially in the health/beauty arena. Today’s economy has often been referred to as a “lipstick” economy – which means that many women (people) would gladly go to the poorhouse as long as they can look good doing it!! (I.e. I’ll spend my last dollar on lipstick rather than say the electric bill). And many home businesses allow you to look good, buy your products at a discount, and still make money while you’re at it!
And shopping from home allows those with money to purchase the products they want/need with a sense of privacy and without having to go out and brave the marketplace and parking lots and risk rude salespeople. So if you’ve been trying to decide whether or not to start a home business, you owe it to yourself to start now. It may just be an extra $250 a month (or week) for now, but in most cases, all it takes to save a family from bankruptcy is just an extra $300 a month! And if you or your spouse loses a job, your home based income may mean the difference between running out of your emergency savings and having some left over to spare.
I have a full list of potential home based businesses in my list of home based businesses (clever title don’t you think??) or you can contact me and I’ll be happy to share my opinions and experiences with you!
