Why do you want your own web-based home business called Internet business? Each person has their own reasons, but three reasons I hear from almost everybody are because they want to be their own boss, set their own schedule, and make some real money, instead just living paycheck to paycheck.
What’s mine? Well, for all those reasons, plus I like the view. Can your own web-based home business bring you those things? Yes, it certainly can. Statistics shows that almost all of the people at the top of the income ladder own their own businesses and the internet has opened unprecedented opportunities to those who choose to run their business from home. Many have successfully taken advantage of the opportunities of the internet to start their own home businesses and get exactly what they want.
But, there’s a catch. The catch is that your own web-based home business can only bring you those things if it is successful. Unfortunately, statistics also show that most web-based home businesses fail. There is a simple reason why that’s true. It’s true because most business owners go off “half cocked” and start their businesses without thinking it through. It’s like deciding to drive from Miami to Seattle, but not thinking to bring a map. A few will get there, but most will run out of time and money before they do.
Does that mean starting a web-based home business is a risky idea? Absolutely not. It just means that starting one without thinking it through is a dangerous idea. You would think that would be pretty obvious, but the statistics show that most would-be business owners do just that.
