The Home Zone

So you want to start a homebased business but don't know where to begin? These entrepreneurs discovered buying a business opportunity can be an easy way to get started.

Home sweet home. It's where you eat, sleep, hang out and relax. If you're smart, it's also a place where you can make money--lots of money. That's because these days, you don't need a fancy office or storefront to get started in a profitable business. All you really need is a good idea.

And by starting from home, you avoid the hassles of space-leasing, high overhead and daily commutes. If you like the idea of the homebased lifestyle but don't have an original idea for a business, one way to get started is by buying a business opportunity.
