Home business has a value beyond the money you make for yourself. When we create income for ourselves at home and encourage others to do the same and help one another, we improve society as a whole because we are essentially creating a safety net for ourselves that is independent of “government help”.
Here’s how that works: Economists tell us that we have “recessions” when our economy’s “output” exceeds the nation’s capacity to purchase it. Right now the “solution” is to pump money into the system and get things moving again.
If we don’t like that option (evidently the last election November 2010 shows we don’t like that option!) what is the solution? If we don’t like seeing the resources for recovery vested in government, that means building up the people’s capacity to weather the storms of the economy.
How do we do that? It involves putting more money and control back in our pockets and reducing our dependence on the people and organization who consider us “expendable” economically.
That’s where starting your own home business comes into play in larger way.
By creating your own job, you (and me and others) begin the process of shifting more influence and decision making power in our lives away from distant entities who view us as “buying units” or “human capital” towards, well, us!
In the larger picture a growing network of Home Businesses is crucial to the project called “America”.
Unfortunately though, according to journalist and researcher Barry C. Lynn, notes “The American small business is increasingly becoming an American myth: Self-employment in nonfarm businesses has fallen by nearly half over the past 50 years.”
We’ll talk more about that later, but for now let’s just realize that the success of your home business goes beyond its importance to you… it’s important for the rest of us too.
