Home-Based Businesses

With hectic schedules seemingly the norm these days, owning your own home based business affords the ability to "follow your bliss" without a daily commute to an office. There are a variety of home-based opportunities that allow you to work from home full-time or part-time in a number of different industries. Are you ready to start your own successful business from your own home? With initial investments starting as low as $10,000, there's no reason not to!

Types of Home Businesses

Some home-based businesses are run entirely from your house while others allow you to run a part of the business at home and part at a client's home or place of business. From business consulting and coaching to in-home tutoring services to cleaning services, there's a home-based opportunity for every skill set and interest.

Why Consider a Home-Based Franchise?

Besides the awesome flexibility working from home provides, most at-home businesses offer lower start-up costs and overhead due to all or part of the business being operated from your house. Home-based franchises are ideal for working parents who can set their own schedules and save on child care costs. There may also be tax savings available when you run your business out of your house, making a home-based business an economical choice for many for those who want to be their own boss.
