What are the advantage and disadvantages of starting a home-based business?
Creating a home-based business is a dream for many people who wish to better articulate their professional lives with their private lives. Starting a business at home has become commonplace as a result of the emergence of self-employment and then micro-enterprise status, and the trend is accelerating.
This article presents 25 home business ideas for men and women. These activities are more or less profitable and promising. In any case, it will be essential to go out to meet with customers, partners or suppliers.
Create your home business: advantages and disadvantages.
Creating a home-based business has advantages:
- reduced travel time
- savings and pooling of fixed costs (rent, heating …): the breakeven point will be lower
- flexible and adaptable schedules
- possibility of adapting his professional life to family constraints
But starting from home also has drawbacks:
- boundary between private and professional life less clear, which can create tensions within the couple or the family
- less visibility and more difficult to reach customers
- unable to receive clients and partners at home
- lack of credibility
Note the trend towards the development of co-working: home-based entrepreneurs leave their homes to settle in shared work spaces, in order to develop their network and their business faster, without degrading their quality of life.
