Home-based Business Resources
Home Office

A home-based business can be a great way to support a hobby, earn a living or launch the next Apple or Martha Stewart empire. Not every business needs an office in an office building.  There are a variety of businesses that can be started and ran at home.  Eleven businesses you can start in your pajamas are detailed in this Inc. slideshow.

There are a variety of Resource Partners who can assist in setting up and running a home-based business.  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) are great federal resource partners.  The IRS has tax information on running your business from home.  For example this year the home office deduction just got simpler.  Check it out here.  The SBA has a wealth of information on all aspects of starting, managing and growing your business.  A helpful article from their website on home based businesses can be found here.  A home-based business might be a great fit for you.
