    Yeah, great points. Being a home-based business owner is a really good start for anyone, the potential is good but the room for growth doesn't match it. Plus it's not for everyone, it's hard to stay motivated in that kind of business not many people have that patience and will to keep on trucking when times get rough.

    Direct Sales

    • To start a direct sales business from home you will a demonstration kit and samples to distribute to prospective clients. Direct sales companies usually have a great support system complete with training manuals that provide information about the products and the best way to sell them.

      Direct sales businesses sell products that include vitamins, nutritional supplements, skincare products and cosmetics.

      Some of the most successful home-based businesses with the longest history sell cosmetics and skincare products.

    Computerized Accounting

    1. Operating a computerized accounting business from home has become extremely popular because there are a growing number of small business that cannot afford the services of a bookkeeper or accountant, on a full- or even part-time basis.

      Computerized accounting business ventures generally call on clients once a week to collect documents and to drop-off reports. Most clients that contract someone to take care of accounting duties like payroll and bill paying also contract him or her to file business and personal taxes.

    Gift Baskets

    1. There are almost as many products that can be sold in gift baskets than there are types of home-based businesses. Corporate gift baskets are personalized to meet the needs of the typical corporate manager or administrator.
      A corporate gift basket may be made up of small travel accessories, exclusive office supplies or personalized stationary.

      Gift baskets for baby shower gifts, weddings and birthdays are among the most popular. Personal gift baskets can include edible items like fruit or baked goods like small cakes and cookies.

    Home Staging

    • Real estate agents and home sellers contract home staging experts to depersonalize and remove clutter from a home that is on the market.

      Home staging is a relatively new industry that incorporates interior design skills and real estate sales techniques. Typically, a home staging expert or consultant develops a design concept for each individual home that includes cleaning and interior design. The objective is to optimize the appearance of the home to result in a sale at the asking price.

    1. Decorating Assistant

      1. A decorating assistant works with a homeowner to hang wallpaper, paint and perform other interior design duties. Instead of hiring a painter or wallpaper hanger, the homeowner hires the decorating assistant to perform these duties at a reduced rate.

      Decorating assistant is a perfect home-based business for an entrepreneur with a flair for decorating.

    Internet Marketing and MLM stuff can be run from home.   


    Most businesses can be RUN from home but not every business can carry out operations from home.   I've seen contractors work from home and just rent the space they need.

    I personally started my business as a home business and I do medical billing for a living. After obtaining more clients than I could handle on my own however I did have to move to an actual building and hire people to help out with the work load. So from experience I can honestly say that Medical Billing is a very good home business for those who like me are full time moms. The downfall is that you do need to obtain your certification and having some kind of experience is always a plus, also this business will take off as fast as the commercials make it seem but if you stay patient and focused this is a very good home business to be part of.
