Home Business Boom

by Mary Emma Allen on March 12th, 2007

According to economist/author Paul Zane Pilzer, “We’re in the midst of a boom in home based businesses and it shows no signs of slowing.”

He considers that a home based business has “the edge” over the traditional business. According to statistics Pilzer has researched, “Today more than 50% of Americans work either for themselves or for a small business.”

In his book, The Next Millionnaires, Pilzer looks at various aspects of the home based business in the Internet age and explains why the home business person can have an advantage.

So if you have a small business, or are looking at developing one, you’re in line with many other Americans who consider working for themselves, full time or parttime, the way to get ahead.

This is not to say a home-based business is for everyone.  As I’ve mentioned in previous blog entries, there are pros and cons to this type of business as with any type of employment.   However, it appears many people are considering working at or from home, as their grandparents or great grandparents did and find a home-based business worthwhile.
