Have you ever been discussing your network marketing business opportunity to a prospect and have them throw this objection at you: “Why would I want to have the added stress of a network marketing home based business?”
How did you answer?
I know many network marketers just throw their hands in the air and move on to the next prospect. But truth be told, that prospect who asked that question may just be the best recruit you could get if you can give him/her an answer that makes sense.
Today, I am going to help you by giving you 5 advantages of having a home based business. Use one or all to give your prospect an answer to their objection.
Home Based Business Advantage #1: No Commuting
Many people drive for miles to “bring home the bacon.” Most companies do not pay you for the time you spend in your car, on a bus or in the subway. After that commute, it takes a little while to get into the work rhythm.
When you have a home based business, you save the gas, wear and tear on your vehicle, traffic stress and you are able to start work immediately.
So go ahead and sleep in an extra ½ hour… Plus, you can start work in your pajamas if you want.
Home Based Business Advantage #2: Your Are Working Toward Your Financial Freedom, Not Someone Else’s
Let’s face it, when you walk into that office or factory and start working, the profits gained from your hard work don’t go into your bank account. No matter how hard you work, it is creating financial freedom for another person.
When you have a home based business, you are creating financial freedom for you and your family.
Home Based Business Advantage #3: Less Risk Than A Traditional Business
Most home based businesses can be started for less than $5,000. A traditional business takes much more than that to start.
So the risk is much lighter if business doesn’t work out.
Home Based Business Advantage #4: More Flexibility
I always say this lightly because some people can carry flexibility to extremes.
But it is true that you do not have to work the hours another person sets; you can work the hours you set.
If you feel like working from the local Starbucks today, you can.
You call the shots, but don’t allow flexibility to give you the idea you can work very few hours and be profitable. In all actuality, to gain success, you may need to put in more hours than you worked on your normal job.
Home Based Business Advantage #5: Tax Benefits
I would have to say this is one of the top reasons people start home based businesses. It can be a huge tax benefit even if you just work a home based business part time while working your regular job.
Some of the tax benefits you can realize are:
- Home office deduction
- Office expenses
- Business expenses
- Motor vehicle expenses
- Other expenses
- even Family employees
I have even heard some people claim that just starting a home based business, the tax benefits alone brought them out of the red and into the black.
I must also mention that a few years ago, we developed an application that can help you keep track of all incoming monies and outgoing expenses. Learn more about the Expense Tracker here.
It all just comes down to this, “How can a person handle the stress of not having a home based business?”
The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. The key is choosing a home based business that you have passion for.
