The Benefits of Working At Home - Options and How to Start a Home Business - Ebay - Medical Transcriptionist - Paralegals - Consulting


The Internet has made a home based business easier than ever.  Some potential business include: Selling on eBay, Medical Transcriptionist, Writers, Paralegals and Virtual Assistants, just to name a few.  Each business has its benefits and drawbacks.  Some of the businesses require money to begin, while others are virtually free to start.

Talk to many home business owners and they will tell you they “love it”!  There is no commute, no boss, and possibly no day care.  The downside is that you need to put money aside for your taxes, there are no 401K’s (unless you set up your own), no health insurance (unless you set up your own) and you need to be self motivated. 

Jordan McCollum, in an article on Best Syndication, said Medical Transcriptionists can choose their own hours, enjoy excellent pay, job security and satisfaction.  According to McCollum, there is a quick entry process and more and more transcriptionists are working from home.


Ebay poses a big challenge to anyone wanting to start a home business.  If you want to sell products on the Internet, the site that will most likely make it happen for you is eBay.  Yahoo, Amazon and Overstock have auction and store sites and you may want to compare sales among those site.  Just pick out the items you intend to sell and see how well they sell on each site.

The drawback to eBay is the customers.  Dealing with customers can be a major challenge, especially when threats of negative feedback occur.  Some customers are looking for something for nothing.  eBay will usually require an initial investment.  Besides paying for products, you will need to budget listing and final valuation fees.  There are many online resources for those wanting to sell on eBay.


In an article titled “How to Hire a Virtual Assistant - Your 10-Step Guide to Finding the Perfect Fit”, Danielle Keister says a Virtual Assistant can charge $35 to $65 per hour.  She describes some important things to consider when operating a virtual assistant business.  Danielle says that you need to stress you training and experience on a professionally done website. 

The ideas for a home business are endless.  You could create a resume writing business, or a travel agency, photography, or if you have some expertise, start a consulting business.  You don’t even need to work it full time at first.  You can start your business on the side at night and on the weekends.  Many entrepreneurs start out this way and it turns into something big.
