The ideal time to start a business at home is when you have
at least one income stream. This will ensure your survival
while you are planning, building, developing and maintaining
an Internet home business.
Ever hear the saying, ‘why put off until tomorrow what you
can do today’? A good reason to start today is because you
don’t know what tomorrow will bring. If this was for
example that you got laid off from your job due to
downsizing, outsourcing, mergers, etc. You know they don’t
give you much warning in many cases.
That kind of adds insult to injury because it completely
throws a wrench into everything. Your whole routine, budget
and all can become quickly ‘not applicable’. Your entire
way of life needs to change radically while you try to find
other work. The bills go on just the same during the
suspension or at least reduction in the income that you
thought you had.
You need to survive between jobs in other words. So the
point is when you are in dire straits is not the best time
to start a new business because you need to be in a hurry.
Some things just won’t hurry particularly if you have
learning curves which most people do when starting something
So the time to start is when you have an income and you can
afford to take your time; and something else that works in
favor of you eventually being successful is that with an
income, you can afford to feel your home business is a labor
of love, something like a hobby or interest that you enjoy
doing (the making money hobby).
If your part-time business already has some kind of
structure and is already running to some degree, then if
something unexpected happens, you can merely ramp it up!
You can just welcome that you will have more time to invest
in your own business now that you don’t have your bummer
commute and surly boss to contend with! 😉
Anything can happen where you might need to raise substanial
extra money quickly – a major car repair, natural disaster,
relocation, personal family matters, etc. It is a whole
different ‘ballgame’ if you have been able to earn extra
money with your part-time internet home business and have
been able to save it; you don’t have to panic as much
because you know you have it covered for a few months or so
until you can land on your feet!
Think about it – It’s a lot easier if you could see
tomorrow coming! Not to know the future, but just to have a
contingency plan for whichever way things go. If you are
prepared and engaged in your financial health and your
security, you will use your spare time wisely to do
something more productive instead of just ‘hanging out’.
