Well, I’m proud to announce I am now one of the statistics, and officially have a home-based business. I have a lot of military spouse friends who have these types of businesses (Scentsy, Pure Romance, etc…) and it makes me wonder: what are the numbers of military spouses vs. civilians who run businesses such as these in each region? I chose to go this route mainly because, after job-searching for the past 12 months, I have been unable to find employment that fits my particular needs (deployment, childcare, late nights, weekends, etc…).
What are your opinions on home-based businesses? Do you have one yourself? Do you believe they’re a good investment and industry for the world we live in? Also, moving from place to place means having to make new friends and contacts along the way. How do you maintain a successful business despite the move(s)?
I’d love to hear your feedback, advice, stories and more! Let me know what you think. I’m sure countless other spouses are thinking of joining the workforce from home, and would love your input and experiences!
