The marriage between my life… and my work… makes them virtually indistinguishable from one another. And for me… there is no greater advantage than that! Like everything in life, owning a Home Based Business has it’s advantages and it’s challenges. After reading the articles in this month’s issue, it’s clear that the advantages are numerous. For me, they certainly outweigh any of the challenges. And I’ll also confess, it’s the intangible’s that I appreciate the most. Certainly the tax benefits are extremely valuable. The unlimited financial potential is also high on the list of advantages. And the convenience of having your ‘office’ right in your home space can certainly be experienced as a benefit and advantage… well, most days. 🙂
Yet for me, I think the bigger advantages lie in the areas of being able to move at my preferred pace… along with my ‘business shingle’ being a perfect disguise for the intense study in personal growth required to becoming a successful business owner/operator.
NULL You see… I was raised by a father who was a business owner. It became clear to me at a young age that he was more owned by his business than many people who simply had a ‘job’. While Dad certainly had a very full office at home… his was NOT a home based business. And I remember being surprised to discover that my friends fathers didn’t all have offices at home where they spent all their time. I thought it was kind of sad for Dad that he had to work away from home Monday through Saturday and then worked in his home office on Sundays and evenings. Little did he know there were other options! Instead of dampening my entrepreneurial spirit, it made me get very clear about what I was looking for and caused me to hone my radar toward catching those opportunities that were a better fit for me. When I discovered the concept of home-based businesses like network marketing and/or direct sales I KNEW it carried with it the opportunity to explore and share my passion along with the freedom to create and dictate at my own pace for the good of myself and my children as well as my team members. It provided a perfect solution for me.
I was a business owner who was employee and time clock FREE!!!
These were two huge benefits to me. It’s not just that I could fit ‘work’ into my lifestyle… it’s that I never feel like I’m working at all! The marriage between my life… and my work… makes them virtually indistinguishable from one another. And for me… there is no greater advantage than that!
