Your Plan B Is Fiancial Security For The Family
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Let's tell it like it is...... Our reason for excitement about a home based business is one dimensional about your family financial security. You can operate your business from the family room, a bedroom or your over the garage hang-out. You can even take a tax deduction for expenses because Uncle Sam loves the entrepreneur with a business Plan B.

Most of our jobs growth in America is driven by the small business owner. While the BIG companies are paying their CEO huge salaries and big bonuses they are also cutting jobs along with employees. Nobody wants to get the ax this time of year but it happens when you're merely a number on the blackboard.

Keep your current job with an employer who is paying you a weekly paycheck. Never jump into an unknown situation until you prove you've made a wise decision for your new business. Most of us learned as children not to jump into the deep end of a swimming hole and the same goes for your business decisions.

Never "fire and aim" at anything when common sense tells you otherwise. Research is step #1 to success. None of us should rush headlong into any business before we have a deep understanding of the facts. So many things in your life can impact the possibilities of success in your own business.

Maybe you can make a few assumptions but be sure they are sound. It's possible that you know how to dig a hole in the ground and install an irrigation system. You've been working for a landscape company driving a company truck with a couple of helpers. Every week your team installs 2 or 3 irrigation systems so it's obvious that you are ready to be the big boss, right?

Yes, it's true, that's the way many business decisions are made. However, the big questions are about what you do not know about managing and running your own business. Who is going to handle SALES for your new business? Who can figure the cost and quote the price you'll charge? Who'll arrange for supplies delivery to the job site? Can you get credit from your vendors or is it a cash transaction?

You may decide a franchise makes sense and being in business with a successful mentor is a good idea. It's true that the "right" franchisor can make a difference, particularly in the beginning. However, there are other options you should evaluate before paying out a huge franchise fee. Just our opinion from experience.

Obviously, your work history and past experiences are very important. You may decide to change careers and discover what the Internet Marketers are doing online. We like the idea of the minimal cost running a home based business focused on Internet Marketing. Training is #2 following your research. Wealthy Affiliate University makes sense to us as our trainer of choice at very little cost.

Just be careful that you don't get suckered in by an Internet guru. Too many of them will take your money and you get nothing of value in return. Been there, done that. Nobody is going to "do it for you" even when they claim otherwise. Trust is earned not a given in the world of Internet Marketing. Just beware.
