Solid Home Business Pillars
Pillars of a Solid Home Based Business
In this day and age it is almost impossible to maintain a decent standard of
living on one paycheck, but in a family where children are involved it is not always feasible for both dad and mom
to have a job outside of the home. Daycare expenses, the need for a second car, and too much time away from the
children are some common drawbacks. This however is the exact situation that a Home Based Business works to its

Home based businesses are a great way to do what you like and earn a living from
it. They can be extremely profitable when done with proper knowledge and tools. But without those, you can end up
wasting an incredible amount of time and money. This will defeat the original purpose of starting a home business,
to make money and have more time to do the things you want.
This article was written to give the average person like you and I, a practical
guideline to getting started in a home based business the right way, and to save you wasting your time and
|Depending on what kind of home
business you choose to go with, it will inevitably
involve some regular paperwork, which has to be done properly and on time.
3 Pillars of a Solid Home
My experience has shown me that there are basically 3 main pillars or principles
of a solid home based business. Follow these principles and you will be starting your home business the right way,
increasing the chances of success.
#1: It must have minimal start up cost
A home based business that has a high start up cost will take longer to see a
profit, and as we said earlier, time is one of the things we are trying to cut down on. Minimal cost will also make
the home based business more assessable to a larger amount of families or individuals who are just starting out.
And, if your business should not work out, your losses will be minimal.
#2: It must be easy to set up and maintain
The more complicated your home business project, no matter what it is, the more
likely you are to give up out of sheer frustration before you see a profit. A business that is easy to set up and
maintain will give you confidence and a sense of accomplishment as you complete each simple step in the
Let's face it if you enjoyed wasting a lot of time and effort maintaining a home
based business you would not be reading this article. This is about freeing you to spend time with your family and
doing the things you love, not creating another taskmaster to replace your job! The first two pillars of a solid
home based business are necessary for the third to occur.
#3: It must have a quick return on investment - ROI
You can spend months building a home based business but if there is never any real
profit generated in a reasonable amount of time many people may get discouraged and give up. And I know this from
personal experience - when I get up in the morning and see sales made by my online business, I get motivated to do
more. If there are no sales, which sometime happens, my motivation shrinks.
What is a reasonable amount of time? I would plan for a time frame on the order of
weeks instead of months. Depending on the type of home based business some people have had a decent ROI within
days, and unbelievable as it may sound some businesses that deal with affiliate marketing and sales can see profit
as early as 15 minutes from startup!

thing to start. But as you go along you will learn

You may be thinking to yourself "that's too simple!" Let me say that within these
3 pillars there is plenty of detail to keep anyone busy. The more you get involved in properly planning your home
based business, the more you will appreciate what it takes to run a successful home business and the more you will
learn the nitty-gritty of it to make it sucessful.
The business that you choose to start should definitely be something that
interests you and possibly even something that you already have a measure of experience in doing. Whatever home
based business you get involved in make sure that it is propped up by the 3 pillars listed in this article. Do not
make the mistake of overcomplicating your efforts or you will see very quickly that you will get bogged down with a
lot of needlessly wasted time and effort.
Here's to your home based business success.
