Starting a business has never been easier. The internet allows you to reach a global market and setting up a business in your home is an extremely popular way to test the waters in the evenings & on weekends. Before I joined the StartupNation team in early 2004 I ran a home based recruiting business for over ten years. I was in business for 19 years, but it wasn’t cool to have a business in the home when I started back in 1985.
The greatest challenge I faced in working from home was isolation. If you run a home based business, you will deal with this at some point on some level. We even have a StartupNation blog focusing on home based business owners. It’s written by our stay-at-home radio consultant Joan Isabella. Joan makes it "real" in her blog. I really love it.
