How to Become a Virtual Assistant

Advantages of Starting a Home Business

A home business is considered by many to be a ‘dream’ business.
In this article, we will talk about the advantages of starting a home business:

1) You don’t need to get out of the house

With the rising cost of fuel, people are starting to favor the joy of working in the comfort of their own home. They do not need to worry about getting caught in heavy traffic, getting stuck at traffic lights, rush hour, road blocks and coming up with lame excuses for being late for work. In other words, your home will be your base of operations and also your fortress of solitude as well.

2) You don’t need paper, pens, make up or even clothes!

Paper is so 80’s. When you can do everything in a paperless environment, you don’t have to worry about where you left your last file. It’s all on the computer or on the net. You can operate your business in your underwear. You do not need to spend a fortune on make up or your aching feet because of wearing high heels. Home businesses may be ‘virtual’ but the money and lifestyle is REAL.

3) You get to outsource

You don’t have to deal with pesky staff. Just operate everything you need from home. You can get writers from India, Philippines, Malaysia or any part of the world. It’s the 21st century and you can connect with the rest of the world from your computer. And best of all, if you don’t like them, you can ‘fire’ them and you don’t ever need to see them again because they are not even in the same country.

4) You can make sales and collect money online

Meeting people in the real world is good, but if you are the shy type who doesn’t like to close a sale in person or collect money from a bad pay master, then by all means, hide behind your computer screen and run an Internet business! Sales letters do a fine job of getting sales and payment processors automate everything by collecting money for you. It’s a beautiful life!

5) You dictate your own hours

Now you can finally talk to your kids late morning or have tea with them. You dictate your time and you dictate your own hours. No longer is one confined to a 9-5 routine and being forced to eat lunch when your ‘boss’ dictates it.
