Why not jump on the bandwagon like so many others have done before you? A home-based business where you are only responsible for yourself and to have no restrictions like bells or timetables or bosses must be the best possible lifestyle. Make 2009 your year. Any age any person can do this. If you are 15 or 70 you can still, make your fortune. It just requires patience and a never-ending supply of faith in you and your own abilities. Don’t rely on others, become self-sufficient and you will reap the rewards. I guarantee it.

I find that people stay in their business longer if they like what they are involved in.
If possible, try to separate your “home office” from the rest of your home. If you don’t have the luxury of a separate room, a room partition or screen can be just as helpful. This also serves as a visual cue to family that you’re working and shouldn’t be bothered.
Lifestyle. Is work or family more important? Are you contended with “simpler living?” Do you desire a Porsche or BMW? Do you want to live in a mansion, a seafront house, etc.? Do you have expensive hobbies life golf? These all cost money so tabulating the expenses and matching it to your income is necessary to achieve your lifestyle goals.
