There are many reasons to start a home based business. Of course, we all hear about, read about, and maybe even talk about the idea of getting rich from home, and it happens. Maybe you know of someone who has done that.
I can’t think of anybody that wouldn’t enjoy the option of deciding when or if they want to get out of bed and have their income keep coming either way.
But there are also other benefits, besides huge bank accounts and fancy cars, to having your own home based business.
Maybe you are more interested in setting up a side project that can be there to help you hedge your bets against a possible job loss, cutback, downsizing, or reduced hours. It’s not like we haven’t all heard of that, before!
Or maybe you want a little side project you can do on the weekends to keep you busy, create some savings, or to set aside money for travel.
Perhaps you are looking for some extra money to cover insurance or medical needs and the idea of taking on a full 2nd job just doesn’t make sense to you.
Maybe you actually love what you do at your regular job but can use more income. In that case, a side business you can run from home may make perfect sense for you.
With today’s tax situation, a home based business may make perfect sense to you for no other reason than legal tax deductions. Consult your local tax professional but there are literally hundreds of tax deductions available to you when you have a business you run form home. Whether your business is a side project or your full-time venture, it just makes sense to take advantage of all the allowable tax deductions you can, right?
It’s not always about living a dream lifestyle. Sometimes, it’s as simple as some extra income, a little income protection, tax breaks, or simply other areas of interest.
