Start a Business From Home This Year

As the economy continues to struggle, I see more and more people deciding to work for themselves. Nobody trust’s corporate America anymore, or any corporation for that matter…

If you have been dying to work at home, now’s the perfect time! I have actually created a consultation site in case you need some help!

Home Business FactCheckUnderstand that starting your own business is the only true way to control your life, and ensure that your family is taken care of.

We have billions of people on this planet, and each of them are a potential customer for your new business. Knowing this fact, how come major corporations keep laying people off? It just doesn’t make any sense! If these companies are making billions of dollars in sales every year, then why can’t they afford to keep people employed? It’s their greed!

Corporations exist to provide profits to share holders. If the company is not making big profits, then their stocks drop. More and more companies are going overseas or replacing human workers with industrial machines!

Your Job Security

Your job security is actually your own responsibility in the current economy. It’s already been proven over and over that people who work for themselves are much happier, and much wealthier. It’s up to you to stop living paycheck to paycheck only to not have any job security when it’s all over.

Most people that avoid working for themselves simply don’t understand how easy it can be to start a successful business from home. They don’t understand that they actually have talents within themselves that people want and will pay for.

Let’s take me for example. I have been working from home since 2002. I started working for myself without any type of access to a business coach. I struggled for awhile before I reached success. The only reason I struggled was because I had no idea what to do and how to do it. If I did, then I would have reached success within a very short period of time. In that case, I wouldn’t have the knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in order to teach you how to be successful. Now, you don’t have to work hard on things that fail. If you hired me as your business coach then I would tell you what works and what doesn’t. I have a marketable skill.

What’s your skill?

Hard WorkHard work is never fun. But even worse, it’s never fun to not be able to afford things like vacations.

As someone that wakes up every day and works really hard, I think that the working class are the ones that really deserve a vacation every now and then. So why is it the wealthy people that always end up taking vacations all the time?!

It’s because they can afford it. Not only can they afford it, but they have all the time in the world to do what they want.

  • What if you could afford multiple vacations every year?
  • What if you made your own hours?
  • What if you wanted to buy a new car?
  • What if you wanted to buy your dream home?

None of that can be done if you are working a dead-end job!

If you aren’t convinced to work for yourself after that, then you are meant to work hard for someone else the rest of your life. If that isn’t you though, then visit and get started on the path to happiness!

  1. Great motivational article for those of us in the beginning stages of working for ourselves. Good pointers to get out from under the corporate stronghold – especially when you consider that you can afford multiple vacations, a new car, etc – really makes the hard work sound worth it.

  2. Brandon I really like what you said about having a marketable skill earned while struggling to make things work. This is a story that would help someone to stick with it. Unfortunately, too many people get bogged down with the tech side of building an online presence as well as all of the training that goes into it and simply give up. I agree completely that people must be free from the J-O-B and work fro themselves.

    Right on the money Brandon. I really think this is one of the best times to start a home based business. I mean, companies are cutting jobs left and right, factories are closing down, etc. So, there is a lot of needs and a big wide open market for variety of services you could provide with your business.

  6. Home business is a really great idea to deal with especially the effects of recession are strong. Job security is really something that people should focus and successfully in handling it. I hope that there will be a time that I stop living paycheck to paycheck only if I have already a stable passive income. Maybe I should improve my marketable skill so that I could open home business in the near future. Thanks for the interesting article.

  7. There is nothing as good as being your own boss. Working for yourself is the best thing because since you are running things on your own you make your own rules and you also know that at the end of the day you have to deliver. You kind of have the feeling of if you do not work hard then you are failing no one but yourself. This is an interesting post.

  10. Hi Brandon,

    just want to say that you are right… I started my online business about 10 years ago. I finished computer science but at that time there was no need for programers so i had to decided whats the best option for me… I worked construction (yes construction 🙂 ) and in the same time i start reading whatever i could get my hands on about making money online. I spent about 10k in 5 years for books, programs and so on… and finally after all this time i was able to quit my remodeling job and dedicate 100% of my time for an online business. I had months when the income was 10-20k$ so at the end it is worth it. I learned that as long as you have a dream and work hard enough at one point it will come true…

    Thank you for your post, Radu

    Hi Brandon, so very true mate. I’m in the UK and it’s pretty much the same here mate. I read the other day that 98% of our “Home” companies are actually based on some of the little islands around the UK. This way they save on the taxes they have pay and some of these are the banks that got bailed out by the tax payers and are refusing loans as well as laying people off.

    We each have a skill that we should be able to use for OUR benefits, OUR holidays and OUR families but like you say many people fear going it alone.

    I know that you have a few things on the go and I know that you’ll be able to show people how it’s done.

    I wish you every success

  12. Fantastic Idea. After reading this post it gives me hope that it’s not too late to build your own home business. It takes courage and right mind set to start businesses because there’s a lot of big companies who’s laying off their employees. Thank you for this inspiring and motivating post. All the best!

  13. Working from home is getting popular because there are so many benefits of working from home like freedom of work, lots of learning, developing new skills, escape from office politics, chance to give time to your family and a relaxed lifestyle. But it is a challenging job. It requires full dedication, decipline and you should know how to manage your time. You may have to deal with many problem when starting but it’s a part of business. Nowadays many people have started working from home as opposed to a regular office job, but the most important thing is deciding the type of business you want to start from home.
