Such problems might be moot in the US because it’s still unclear whether Facebook or any other entity intends to use zero-rating to bring broadband access to poor Americans. Zero-rating programs have been used heavily by AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile USA, but not for boosting Internet access for poor people. This recent history suggests there may not be a strong commercial case for Free Basics in the US.

Great guest post! He hit some very valid and often overlooked points.

Regarding hourly, I think it’s important to know how long things take and know what you need to make for your company to be profitable. However I don’t charge hourly since I price based on value. I start with my base hourly rate which includes: Overhead + Wages + Profit / Number of hours I can realistically bill. That gives me my effective hourly rate and lets me know the “minimum” I can charge for something without loosing money. Then I add whatever on top of that based on the value of what I’m doing. So if my effective hourly were $100 lets say, and a logo ID is 10 hours, my base is $1000 but I’ll charge more because of the value of what I’m doing…then the key is to be clear on what they get, number of ideas, meetings, revisions etc.

(Of course, this advantage is wiped off the board if you don’t actually work at home but have to travel to customers and clients.)

Work where you’re most productive, even if it’s outside of your home. “Sometimes home is not the right place and work is not the right place—even when they are the same place,” says Stephanie Staples, a personal coach and motivational speaker. “I need a third location.

It is the power of the third location; I think differently, work differently, act differently there, and it really helps me.”

Yes, there might be fewer people in a small town, or fewer stores and shops, but that doesn’t mean that babies don’t grow out of their onesies, people don’t buy new furniture and kids don’t move off to college. In our capitalist society, fewer people doesn’t always mean less stuff. So opening a second-hand store or thrift shop is a great way to help the people of your town recycle unwanted items while giving those that might not have as much a less expensive shopping option. One reason why opening a thrift store in a small town is a great idea, is that much of the merchandise you sell you will receive via donations. This does present logistics to think about regarding how to regulate and keep track of inventory, but it also means that even though you sell items for less than a traditional store, you’ll never owe money to a middleman or manufacturer. Cha-ching!

But if you want to start a home-based business that will succeed, rather than just being another business failure that drained your time and wallet and left you disappointed, you need to pay particular attention to these two steps of the startup process.

When all the money is coming to you instead of just a paycheck from a normal job, it can sometimes be tempting to overspend. The problem arises when you’re not putting away enough to survive if you have a few less-than-stellar sales months, or even worse – if you’re not accounting for the fact that you have to handle your own taxes and other business related expenses. Make sure you’re managing your finances realistically, and don’t be afraid to talk to an accountant if you need help. The price of getting help will be much less than the price of making a mistake on your own.

At the same time, just determining your income may pose more of an obstacle for self-employed workers. These workers often have multiple sources of income that may fluctuate, so documenting income requires more paperwork. Compare that with a traditional borrower who receives a regular paycheck and who has a W-2 tax form, on which an employer reports the employee’s annual wages.

How did this happen? According to Larisa Popovich, the director of the Institute of Public Health Economics at the Higher School of Economics, sometimes on death certificates doctors can attribute a patient’s cause of death to proximate causes, instead of direct causes. For example, if a person dies from an embolism while suffering from an endocrine disorder, physicians can choose either condition as the cause of death.

It is common for an employer to call someone self-employed, or a ‘casual worker’ or a ‘trainee’, when that person is really an employee. Employers do this in order to avoid having to pay tax and national insurance for their employees and to try to avoid them having employment rights. It is irrelevant what your employer calls you, whether you are known, for example, as self employed, an agency worker, or a casual worker. In addition, just because you pay tax and national insurance as a ‘self-employed’ person, it does not automatically follow that you are actually self-employed rather than an employee. What matters is what happens in practice about how you work, who decides what work you do and what you are expected to do by your employer.

Mary has a regular job and makes $50,000 a year. She received a tax refund of $1,500 last year, but that’s not the full story. You see she had already paid almost $11,500 to the IRS because of the money taken out of each paycheck. So effectively, she paid $10,000 in taxes! What if Mary could get back more than the $1,500 at the end of the year? What if she could get back closer to $10,000? Let me show you how this could be possible for Mary.

If you don’t mind parading yourself around in public places a side business idea, and enjoy a little attention, then working as a human billboard can pay a surprising amount of dividends. Renting out your beard, for example can earn you as much as $5 a day while having a brand logo tattooed on your shaven head for five years could pay as much as $7,000—though this type of earning opportunity is admittedly rare. This business idea is definitely not for the faint of heart, and is a little extreme for me, but nonetheless it’s been done as a side hustle for many people. You can start by holding a placard or wearing a sandwich board. If you think this is a good business idea for yourself, you can go all the way and turn it into a full on small business idea.

There’s a perfect storm brewing for people who work in a home office. Don’t bother to check the skies outside your window; if it hits, it’ll most likely strike inside. We’re talking about on the job injuries – in your own home. 

It’s sad but true that there are loads of scoundrels in business. Many of them hold titles like CEO, President, and CFO. There are indeed people out there who seem to care about nothing but money, and they will lie, cheat, and steal to get it. In recent years some of the more despicable ones have gotten themselves indicted (or are already behind bars). But there are plenty of others to whom the word honor has no meaning. For example, in the computer gaming industry, it isn’t unusual for large publishers to feign interest in certain games and string the developers along. They give the developer every indication that a deal is pending, but all the developer sees are delays and false verbal promises. In reality the publisher only wants to keep the game off the market to keep it from competing with one of their own titles; they hope to cause the developer to miss the next Christmas season or to run out of cash and cancel the title altogether. It happens. Business, especially the entertainment industry, is not for the timid.

When you work from an actual office space, it’s easy to leave work at work. You may think about it after hours, but everything you need to do your job is at the office. When you work from home, it’s much easier to blur that line. Remember that you have a set schedule. Things may come up unexpectedly, but try to find a way to stay away from your office space when you’re not working. This is critical for your mental health and happiness — and that of your family, too.

I started my games business in my early 20s, and people in their early 20s are invariably weird. But I assumed that as a business owner, being weird wasn’t appropriate or acceptable. So most of my business letters and emails looked like they were written by the same people who created Microsoft’s EULAs. The job title of “President” really went to my head. I learned how to function without a personality.

If time is money, then inefficient use of time means wasting money. Knowing this, many businesses hire consultants to assess how the business is running in an effort to find ways to improve effectiveness and efficiency. Some things they look at include available resources and how well they’re utilized, how the business is structured, and how to best maximize the skills and experience of the people involved in the organization. 

Whenever I get bogged down by all the demands of running a business or suffer from people fatigue I sort of dream about going out on my own (in reverse) as just a solo, freelance, creative, consultant working on one client at a time…alone home where my wife and kids can be near.

Hi Christine, Like much of your offerings for artists and the self employed, these tips can benefit folks in middle management in corporate America, too. It is easy to let our company or our manager or business unit leader define what we are capable of achieving. We let our job or corporate title define us, as if it mean anything to the outside world. (i.e “field operations supervisor of the data processing division”). We forget that there is a world outside our offices. Some of us have been conditioned to think that having another stream of income is taboo. (I had someone whose efforts I manage apologize to me for not getting my permission before becoming an Avon rep. Why in the world would I want to keep someone from selling Avon to her relatives and friends? As long as it doen’t interfere with her job in my group, go for it – and enjoy the Avon discount!) I work with people who also think it is taboo to even think of looking for another job. This is work people, not marriage! It is not a sin to search for work that feeds your soul and maybe even provide for yourself, your family and/or your future a little better than you are able to today.

This session will review the do’s anddon’ts of operating a home-based business and will also state the case for not quitting your job at all.Keep in mind that operating from home still requires business skills just like any other business. And it will be important to gain understanding in all the other sessions contained in the My Own Business Institute course(s) as well.

I love your list! I have always been passionate about being an entrepreneur and being paid to work from home, but there is a problem: most of these websites, companies are located in the US and require you to be living there. So how does an African like me living in the UAE benefit from this.

During those 14 years I was able to see and hear all the things that make most home businesses look more like hobbies than credible businesses. Once I began to change and correct these things, those 5-minute conversations at networking functions began to turn into meaningful two-way exchanges with visits to my website, and connection requests on LinkedIn.

Though we already suggested a wine bar/coffee shop combo above, the clientele you’ll attract for that small town business idea versus this one is significantly different. Think first dates and book clubs versus Super Bowl Sunday and Monday Night Football. Speaking of which, special events for sports games can drum up major business. Opening a successful sports bar in a sports-centric town can be a great investment. But if you miscalculate the interests of your town, it can also be disastrous. So make sure you know the personality of the community going into this venture.

Good ideas, I like numbers 2, 3, and 6 personally. I think in addition to persistence and determination, creating a successful home-based business also takes courage. It can be a scary proposition to quit your day job to go it alone. I always admire people who make this move, and I think that in general they are all the more happy for it. There is not doubt, though, that you have to go for it 100% in order to make it happen!

Managers will also help their clients keep track of their scheduled appointments and engagements.
