When thinking about a “career” or referring to the term as such how many people actually know the meaning of the word? When referring to the word or phrase “career” and not having a dictionary in front of me the words progress, promotion and opportunities spring up immediately. With the rush of city life not to mention sitting in traffic a lot of people are thinking of starting a business or venture working from home. But how many people actually think of a home business career? Is there a difference? Well the only difference in the two statements mentioned above is the word “career” and not to make a big issue out of nothing there is a subtle difference.
To work from home or having a home business does not mean a person has a career as such because you might find yourself slaving away doing work for somebody else and actually make somebody else rich and not making any progress yourself. The only criteria you actually fulfill is the fact that you are working from home. On the other hand you might still be working from home for a boss but be entitled to a promotion or make progress in life therefore in a way a person actually has a home business career.
However it might be safe to say that whenever a person refers to having a home business career one can assume that a person is self employed and needn’t answer to a boss for that matter. Another assumption made is that a person working from home is always in some form of computer based business and along with that is off course the internet. Once again that needn’t be the case as a lot of home business careers are based on ventures or ideas outside the computer industry.
For one thing the internet and technology industry does make having a home based business much easier in terms of capital outlay, space occupied and ease of operation in general to name a few. But one thing is certain having an internet or computer home based business does not mean it doesn’t require hard work or dedication for that matter. It doesn’t mean things just happen because computers are involved and everything runs on autopilot with no interference from the pilot. In fact because of this so called easy home business there are literally millions of people trying to make a career out of running an online business but the actual reality is that it requires some dedication and work.
A home business career is something that has to be constantly worked on and developed and like any business needs a hands on manager or owner to oversee the day to day operations of the business.
