All Work and No Play—Why Bloggers Quit

With over 100 million blogs estimated to be online today it’s only natural that a business owner would question why a blog would be a lucrative tool to increase business. The short answer is that most bloggers don’t make it past three months.

All Work and No Play

Why not?

As you know, the goal of a blog is to bring traffic to your website, give value to those who read our blogs and develop a loyal following of readers. As a business owner, if you have identified your audience properly those followers will, hopefully, become patrons/customers at some point. If you are a network marketer or involved in a multi-level marketing company those followers could become distributors. Blogging could and should lead to a win/win situation.

4 Reasons to Start a Home-Based Business

I’m sure most of you could come up with more than four reasons to start a home-based business and that’s OK. Today, however, I’d like to go over four reasons I find starting a home-based business can be a GOOD thing.

Reason Number One: Taxes

If you live in the United States and work as an employee you are in the WORST tax position you could be in relation to the tax codes. Now I’m not going to go into the politics of how taxes are structured but I will tell you that US tax code favors the risk takers in our CAPITALIST society. Therefore, business owners get the tax breaks.

When you drive to or from work your JOB it’s probably NOT a tax deduction.

If you have a home-based business do you need to drive to the post office, stop by the office supply store, go to a business meeting, etc.? Tax Deductible.

Need to fly to Seattle to visit your parents…probably not tax deductible.

Need to fly to Seattle for a business trip and also see your parents? Some of that COULD BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Please see a tax professional, but you can see that owning a home-based can have SIGNIFICANT tax implications. Read the rest of this entry
