Seeing that we live in a time where the world economy is getting worse each and every day, there has never been a better time to start a home business.

The truth is a single day job is not cutting it for most people and by having your own business you are in control of what you make.Start A Home Business

There are many business models that you can choose from if you choose to start a home business.

The best in my opinion is to consider joining a network marketing company.

The multi-billion dollar industry of network marketing or direct sales has many benefits to the aspiring entrepreneur.

While I could literally list thousands of reasons you should consider this business model, here is a few of the top reasons:

Reason #1 To Start A Home Business: Personal Development

In my personal opinion this is probably the most beneficial aspect of being a business owner.

I have never enjoyed anything about entrepreneurship more than learning and getting better skill sets.

The greatness of network marketing or direct sales is not only does it develop your business skill sets, it also helps you become a better leader, a better teacher and a better mentor to other people that join you or choose to work with you.

This is by far one of the best and most rewarding reasons to start a home business in this industry.

Reason #2 To Start A Home Business: Sales Training

You might be saying right now….yuck, “I hate sales” but the truth is without sales, a business will not succeed… period.

Why do you think Apple is so big? Sales

What about Costco? Sales

How about Amazon? Sales

There is no business on the planet that succeeds without sales of some sort.

Network marketing will provide you the knowledge and training on how to put yourself at the center of the learning to sell and distribute product.

The industry will teach you approaches and techniques that will make the sales process smooth, and a lot easier to handle.

Here, you will learn how to properly deal with people and build meaningful relationships with them as you grow.

This is an invaluable skill set that will help you make money for years to come.

Reason #3 To Start A Home Business: To Mentor And Be Mentored

 As a new-comer to network marketing, you’ll find yourself entrusted to well-experienced individuals who have been in the business for many years.

They will teach you the ins and outs and give you useful knowledge that you will later give to your own team members.

You’ll have the chance to meet mentors and leaders that you can learn valuable lessons from each and everyday.

Once the knowledge is imparted to you, you can use that knowledge to help others do the same thing, and get the same results.

I think just based on these 3 points alone is a great reason to start a home business in the network marketing or direct sales industry.

You simply will not find a better business model for beginning entrepreneurs and those aspiring to start a home business.

With hard work, focus, and dedication, you can have your own business and be successful. Good luck!

      Great post Mark, I especially agree with reason #1, I found as a Mum with six kids, working from home really developed important skills like leadership and greatly improved my self confidence. Thanks for sharing.

    • Radu

      Hey Mark,
      Awesome points! All three deserve our attention and effort. You grow as an individual a lot, learn how to sell and promote yourself first of all, then your products and last but not least, all the effort and knowledge acquired is not lost but passed to others through teaching and mentoring. How cool is that?
      I love this industry.
      Thanks for sharing my friend. Great post:)


    • Sandy Moore

      Great post Mark and I have to say I’m with Kim… #1 for me also.

      There is no better feeling that becoming the best person you can be and stretching your skills and learning capabilities to the highest limit.

      Great content, Mark. I think all 3 are important, but mentoring is very necessary!

    • Elizabeth

      Very good information there. Personally I have found that mentoring is very important especially if you have a good Mentor who genuinely want to see you succeed.

    • Michelle James

      Great post Mark. The funny thing is we are selling ourself everyday without even realising it. You go for a job interview, you have to sell yourself. When you meet a new partner – yep you have to sell yourself. So why not get paid for it?

    • Alecia Stringer

      Yes, gook luck! Great reasons, as people are motivated here to make their business work. Be sure to feature and help each other out in our journey.

      Hey Mark! Great post!
      There really is no better time to get involved with a home based biz, than where we find ourselves at right now.
      With all the craziness and uncertainty out there….you sure can’t beat taking control of your own destiny!
      Have a good one!

    • Penny Turko

      Hey Mark! Really enjoyed this post on 3 reasons to start a home based business. Quite often these articles state Tax savings, freedom and low start up costs. You changed it up with stating the personal value on starting a HBB. Thanx for sharing something a little deeper!

    • Lilach Bullock

      Great post Mark:) I started my business shortly after my daughter was born. My old company wouldn’t let me work part time and it was the best thing they ever did! Nearly 8 years old I love working from home and wish I had done it years ago:)

    • John Moussan

      Can’t argue with that. Yes you will learn a lot and grow. If you dedicate time to make it work, you will make some magic happen!

    • Val Heisey

      Mark, you always share such awesome information. Entrepreneurship is the best! Thanks for the post!

    • David Sharp

      Great post Mark and for anyone reading this post it should soon become apparent that starting a home business is just that a business and to succeed you need to work on your personal development, learn to make sales and find someone to mentor you to the next level.


    • Duke Romkey

      One of my favorite things about my experience with having a home business is the personal development. I’ve transformed into a more powerful person and I have overcome much of what had stopped me in other parts of my life. Love it!

    • Alan

      Hey Mark, I personally like the fact that I can be around like minded individuals. People who are singing from the same hymn sheet and want similar things out of this very short life we have. Network Marketers are people who go out and seize the day, take action to make their dreams come true.

      I want to be around positive, business minded people who I can learn from, grow with and sometimes impart some of my knowledge to them.

      This truly is a great place to be!

      Keep Moving Forward!


    • Personal development was one thing I did not expect to take on when starting my business online. Now it is the most valuable thing I have obtained from the journey. Thanks for sharing this awesome post Mark!

      • Mark Harbert

        I am just like you Preston, I love personal development, its the greatest thing I have gotten from Network Marketing. Thanks for stopping by my friend.

    • Thanks Mark.
      I truly believe that in order to start a business or earn money, learning and developing skills are very important. You have to gather knowledge about the market, competitors, product, etc. Passion and Hardwork are the Keynodes to make things work.

    • Sarah

      I totally agree about a home business contributing a lot to personal development. I worked as an employee for a long time. While I can work alone and need little guidance, I am used to an working environment where there are managers and supervisors. Now, I feel so independent and free, I need to be responsible by instilling discipline towards myself.

    • freelancer

      I think starting a home business is a great opportunity for everyone. Especially working mothers.. I am a freelancer, and since i started my life is so much different in a better way, of course.. I would recommend it to anyone who is fed up with the regular 9-to-5 jobs..
