Financial consultant and former analyst Jan MacGregor says, There are people out there who are expecting to meet their bills better (after they re-enter the workforce) and never realize they are working either for a loss or for something like $4,000 a year (after expenses).
If you think about the many unseen expenses of a two-income family, MacGregor’s analysis, though it seems hard to believe, is frequently the case. With the freedom and deductions available with having your own business, many mothers and other folks wanting to work at home are starting their own home-based businesses.
There are thousands of home-based businesses to select from when you make your mind up to start your own. Options include web design – while user-friendly programs like FrontPage allow most people to design their own website and free templates are widely available, a lot of business and institutional owners understand that for their website to look first rate and to be really effective in drawing in business, the know-how of a skilled website designer is often necessary.

Ten years ago, there was no such thing as a virtual assistant. Nowadays, thousands of independent contractors call themselves virtual assistants. These contractors rely a great deal on industry organizations, web portals and clearinghouses to learn the business, gain support and find clients.

There’s an online world of possibilities out there-new ones are continually emerging. Your creativity and desire are what will move you forward into an exciting online career!
