Starting a home-based business was one of the best things that I ever did. It is the best decision that I ever made. I couldn’t think of anything worse then spending hours each day stuck in traffic, heading off to a cubicle with no natural light only to do mindless tasks for someone else that don’t seem to mean anything. I realize that I only have one life and don’t want to waste it working for petty people who don’t appreciate me and the effort that I put in. I am a man of creativity who likes to think outside of the square. You can’t do this working for someone else.
Here is why I love my home-based business.
It is midnight and it is okay- Because I work for myself I can set my own hours. This article was planned and written late at night because that is when I decided that I wanted to work. I do not have to fit in to the conventions of other people and their 9-5 mentality. My home-based business is flexible and I can fit it around other things that I have in my life- friends, family and hobbies.
I can do whatever I want- Being self-employed leaves me entirely flexible. I have the ability to pick and choose the projects that I want to work on. I can say no to work or projects that are of no interest to me. It is not like working for someone else whereby you must do what projects are given to you. There may also be office politics at play whereby your immediate superior gives you the worst projects because he doesn’t like you. You wouldn’t have these problems with your own home-based business.
I can work wherever I want- All of my home-based business projects are run online so my business is entirely flexible. I can run my business from anywhere with my 3G modem and the world is covered with free WiFi access hotspots. I can work from anywhere at any time of day. At the start of the year I was running my business from New York City.
I love my home-based business and I wouldn’t want to have my life run any differently. I can work when I want, doing whatever projects that I want, wherever I want throughout the world. I would happily recommend anybody take up the opportunity to start their own home-based business.
