Some people know from an early age they were meant to start their own business. Others find themselves starting a business due to life changes or the economy. Others may be employed, but are wondering whether the role of business owner/entrepreneur is right for them. There are a number of pros for moms looking to start a business from home, but there are also cons that should be evaluated.
There can be many benefits to starting your own business, including:
Rewards: Not everyone defines reward the same way. For some it might be seeing a new venture grow and succeed. For others it may be conquering the unknown and striking out on their own. However you define reward, starting a new company might hold that promise for you.
Being your own boss: When you start a business from home and self-employed, you are your own boss and ultimately control your own destiny.
Income: Whether you view starting a business as an economic necessity or a way to make some additional income, you might find it generates a new source of income.
Flexible hours: Owning your own business is hard work and often requires long, odd hours. In some cases, having your own business may allow you to have more flexible hours. Many stay-at-home parents, for example, choose to become entrepreneurs.
Assess your strengths and weaknesses. Is self-employment right for you?
Determine startup costs: Can you meet these on your own or would need to secure a loan or other type of outside financing?
Research the marketplace: Have you evaluated the competition and considered how your particular business will succeed?
Outline your business goals: What do you want to accomplish and what will you consider a success?
