Most desire to start a home business -- and a very few get into it!

But once you get into a home business, new kinds of problems starts that you never anticipated! And on the positive side, new kinds opportunities and freedom blossom out in and around your home business.

Working From Home: the Pros and Cons.

There is something you need to understand about home business. It is meant for everyone! The nature of your personality goes a long way in making it a success.

So if you’re thinking of starting a home business, you’ve got to realize something about life. Life has a certain balance: there is no pleasure without pain, and there are no pros without cons.

Here’s a look at the upsides and downsides of home businesses.

Pro: Independence. You do what you want, when you want. No-one else can screw up your hard work, and you don’t need to depend on anyone but yourself. Your days of being told what to do are over. And there’s no dress code, either! Many people who work from home admit to sitting around in their pajamas all day, or even working in the nude.

This sense of freedom and complete control are two factors that makes pursuing a home business worth the effort. It has become a cliché, but still : You are your own boss!

Con: No Security. With independence, though, comes responsibility. There’s nobody to carry you if you do badly one day -- if you don’t make any money for the business, then you don’t get paid. People like certainty in their lives (that’s why they spend big bucks on insurance) -- it can be hard to live with this ultimate step into performance-related pay. You might find yourself quickly wishing you had a regular pay cheque again.

This means, there is no absolute security in your home business. You have bring in revenue to meet ends. And none to look forward to.

Pro: Flexible Working. You decide your hours. If you want to take Wednesday off and work Saturday instead, then no-one’s stopping you. If you’d like to get up early and cram all your work into the mornings so you can have the afternoons off, then hey, you’re the boss. Such flexibility can be a massive relief after years of working nine to five.

Con: Work Never Ends. When you work from home, it can be tempting to be constantly monitoring things, even when you’ve decided you’re not working. The only person who can handle a crisis is you -- and crises have a tendency to happen in the middle of the night, or on your day off.

Pro: Keeping All the Money. Everything you earn is yours to keep. It can be truly disheartening to work somewhere where cash is being handled, and realizing that the takings for the day add up to a hundred times more than you got paid. You know that someone’s getting rich off your back, but it’s not you -- working from home makes you the fat cat at the top.

The only money you may have to part with is the taxes. Apart from that, all the money you earn from your home business is yours to keep!

Con: Doing Everything. Not all that money was profit, you know. It goes on things like marketing, management, stock control, deliveries, and so on. Suddenly you have to manage everything that goes on in your business -- you deal with suppliers on one end and customers on the other, you have to do all the budgeting and spending, and you become your own marketing department. You get to deal with all the fun tax issues, too.

Pro: No More Commuting. Commuting is expensive, painful, and can feel like a complete waste of time -- just think of all the time and money most people spend traveling to and from work. When you have a home business, you just get up and you’re right next to your workplace -- isn’t that convenient?

Con: One Less Room. Your house can feel a lot smaller when you’ve had to set one room aside as your ‘home office’. When you’re not working, it just sits there, useless, and meanwhile your kids are getting upset at how small their bedrooms are.

Pro: A Healthier Lifestyle. When you only have an hour’s lunch break to do everything you need to do, you can end up running yourself into the ground and not eating properly. Working from home lets you do your errands when you want, and eat good food every day.

Con: The Loneliness. If you’re the only one around in your house during the day, it avoids distractions -- but it can also feel very lonely. If you’re the kind of person who likes being around other people, you can start to get quite depressed.

Well! These are some of the issues that you have to come to terms with -- when enter into a home business life style.


If you talk to anyone who works from home, they’ll probably say to you that, for them, the pros far outweigh the cons. Once you’re doing your own thing and feeling great, it’s hard to go back to a salaried existence -- and remember, it’s far easier to work around your problems in a home business than it is to deal with any problems you might have at work.
