10 Reasons For Women To Start An Internet Business
Starting an internet business is in my
opinion, one of the fastest and smartest ways women today can make money.
Here are 10 reasons for starting an internet business, and one reason why
1. Money. Pure and simple, we all could use a more of it. Whether it's to
get out of debt, build a retirement, or just simply make ends meet. With
the right guidance, an internet business can start generating income
2. Family. Let's face it Moms, a lot of you want to be home with your
kids. A work at home job is great for just that reason…unless you have to
leave home for appointments, parties, or sales calls. Then you're right
back to babysitters and being away from your kids. An internet business
truly lets you run it from home.
3. Self Esteem. Many of us are so busy being Moms, and wives, and
community members, we forget to forge something in our lives that reflects
our inner selves. Starting (and becoming successful) in your own business
can boost your feelings of self worth, and that makes everyone in your
life a winner!
4. Community. Our communities that we live in are better off for us having
started businesses. It provides good role modeling for our children,
provides tax base for necessary programs such as police and fire, and a
community where people exhibit pride and hard work is a better place to
live for us all. Perhaps you will inspire more women in your community to
start a business!
5. Tax Benefits. Most women who start a business at home are going to be
able to take large tax deductions for their home business. Less taxes
means more money in your pocket, and that's a good thing!
6. Work at Home Household Savings.Working at home means no expensive
wardrobes. The average professional suit for a woman can cost over$150!
Can you imagine NOT having to buy expensive work clothes anymore, and how
much money a year you can save your families budget? Also, how much do you
think a work at home mom uses expensive convenience foods and restaurant
7. Flexibility. Because I work at home, I can arrange my schedule to be
available when a child is home sick or heartbroken, for a field trip at
school, or to just take a mental health day once in awhile and sit at a
park and read. How many bosses would give you the day off to read?
8. Being in charge of your own business means you are no longer at the
mercy of layoffs. Don't get me wrong, a home business can crash too…but at
least YOU hold the reins and make the decisions, not someone else.
9. You determine how much you work, and how much you make. No more being
paid less than you are worth, no more begging for a raise. If you educate
yourself right, you can pretty much combine hard work +
10. You can sell your business later on down the line…it's an investment!
Build it large enough and successful enough, and many website owners have
sold their sites for hundreds of thousands of dollars…and started out
knowing very little about building an internet business.
One reason NOT to start an internet business…
DO NOT start a business to please anyone else. There is so much pressure
on women today to do it all….many times we feel we are not successful
unless we make a lot of money, are perfect moms, never gain a pound…you
get the idea. Start a business for you, and your dreams, not to convince
the world, or the mother in law, or your next door neighbor…that you can
do it all. Running a business is not for everyone, but if you want to
follow your dreams, work at home, and make a good income, starting an
internet business is a great place to start.
