Why Women Are Starting Their Own Businesses

According to LINK Resources Corporation, 4.1 million women had home-based businesses.  More research have shown that the total number of full and part time home based business should hit 37 million by the end of 2003, generating more the 400 billion in revenues. 

Women have begun working from their homes for many reasons:

The high cost of daycare -- The rate of daycare expenses are continually increasing and becoming more and more difficult for families to afford the cost of them. 

And with the government only giving us a $2400 tax break in 2000 per child up to a limit of three kids.  That tax break is much lower than the cost of a child in daycare.

The Quality of daycare -- Some parents just feel it is best for them to watch their own kids.

The need for both spouses to work -- With the growing economy and inflation.  It is difficult for some families to make it on a single income. 

So one of them venture out to find another source for income.  Business start up is sometimes a choice that they may consider to increase their standard of living.

Technology has made it easier -- Now a days, if you have a desire and the willpower to get started.  You can start you own web based business. 

With one of the affiliate programs that we offer, it is as easy as just doing it.

Not being treated fairly -- Race discrimination, sex discrimination, harassment, and unfair practices at work, office politics, and so on.

This can all affect your mental thought process about how you feel about working for the company you presently work for or any other company for that matter.

Low salaries -- It is a well-known fact that a woman and a man can be working the same job at a company. 

They could be performing at the same level and their job reviews could be about the same as well.  But the women, most of the time will be making a substantially lesser amount money then the man.

-- You have total control over your business activities if you are a business owner.  You can schedule your day to fit your lifestyle.   

Advantages of being at home -- There are so many advantages to having a home-based business.  You can work whenever you want to work. 

You don't have to commute very far.    You can deduct some of your home for business expenses.  You can Incorporate as a home business.

Home business ownership is the best choice for women that are faced with some or all of these issues.  Most women start part time. 

If their business becomes the best choice, some ladies eventually leave their full time place of employment.  And go at it on the own full time. Which is the goal of these women.
