Lessons Learned Smarta | 10 reasons to start your business from home 1) Start now - Stop making excuses! If you start a business from home you can begin immediately. It doesn't matter if you're still researching your idea or refining your product, the sooner you start working from home, the sooner you can start making a profit. 2) Low overheads - Not only will you save money on renting/buying office space, but also on the cost of letting and maintaining it, business rates, utilities, cleaners, travel expenses, even buying food on the go. By sustaining low overheads you can keep your cash flow in check and broaden your profit margin. 3) Time - Losing your commute gives you a more productive workday and more time to relax. 4) Flexibility - Working from home avoids the need to lumber yourself with a five-year lease and allows you to choose working hours that suit you, your customers, and your family. 7) Family - Your partner, siblings, and/or parents can help with the running of your company if you operate your business from home.
