It’s coming up on my 17th anniversary of starting my first home-based business. Working from a home office wasn’t as widely accepted back in 1989 so I really felt like I was swimming against the tide. Especially since I had come from a corporate career.
I had a lucrative job at the time but hated the office politics and feeling dependent on the company I worked for. I wanted to feel more in control of my future and have the flexibility to take on projects that I was interested in. I’ve never regretted the life of an entrepreneur.
Here are my top 10 reasons Home Staging (or House Fluffing, Real Estate Staging) is a great home-based business:
- Home Staging is a low cost business to start.
- It doesn’t require official credentials because there are none for this industry (despite what some organizations claim for their own marketing reasons).
- There is no need to invest in inventory or recruit others into the business. This is not a multi-level marketing scheme.
- The financial rewards are there if you work hard to build your home staging business.
- You can still have time for your family or other demands while running this business.
- Since you visit clients in their homes, you don’t need to worry about what your own home looks like or where you live.
- You’ll have daily opportunities to be creative, meet interesting people and make a real difference in their lives by helping them make a significant profit on your services.
- You’ll enjoy variety and a sense of adventure.
- You can control how fast you want to grow your home staging business.
- You decide who you want to work with and what kind of projects you want to take on.
