 1. You are the Boss and the Lord of all that you survey however small your business might be. This will give you a lot of self satisfaction and pride. No longer will your Boss be breathing over the back of your neck. You can make your own decisions courageously and fearlessly.
 2. You no longer have to commute long distances. There are many who spend at least 4-5 hours commuting to work and back. It is a pity that such valuable time is lost day after day and now you can utilize this time in your home business. Furthermore you will save a huge amount on your gas bills. 
 3. When to start work and the number of hours you will work are all decided by you. This does not mean that you will work only a few hours a day thereby neglecting your business. The fact is that you can make it flexible to look after the kids rather than send them to day care or transport the older ones to school.
 4. One of the main reasons for working at home is to spend more time with the family and your home based business provides this wonderful opportunity. You can reschedule your work whenever the situation demands and be of assistance to your family. Your physical presence at home will certainly be a morale booster to all the members of your family.

6. Office politics is pervasive in most work places. Some people know the art of survival in any situation whereas some cannot. Most people detest carrying tales to their Bosses, back biting and currying favor. For such people a home based business is indeed the opportunity they have been longing for to get out of such an environment.

In your own home based business there are no limits or restrictions and you have the every opportunity to display all your skills. You will indeed be pleasantly surprised to see the talents and skills that have been lying dormant within you all these years.

8. As the owner of a successful home based business you are no longer an ordinary employee eking out a living on a 9 to 5 job. You get recognized by the banks, small business organizations and by the community as a successful businessman. This boosts your pride and self esteem.

There are bound to be stressful situations and ups and downs in running your home based business. If you work with dedication, commitment and continue to remain focused on your business the joy of being the proud owner of a successful business will outweigh everything.
