Smart home based business ideas can be very profitable. And since you won't have traditional business expenses--leases and gasoline, for instance--your profits will be greater than a business based out of the home. For 8,000 Americans, home based business ideas turn into realities every day, and many of them are successful for years.

Having a great idea is just the first step in starting a business, but it's a long step from turning an idea into an actuality. Getting a business off the ground is very difficult, and expensive, too. Nearly all start-ups, about 95 percent, are out of business within five years; the only exceptions are home based ones.

Turning Home Based Business Ideas into Successes

The success rate of businesses in the home is much higher than those outside the home--by about 500 percent. When you eliminate building costs or the price of leasing a business location by staying at home, the savings become profit. The same is true of establishing phone, Internet, and data lines; home businesses don't have to worry about outlaying that capital, and the savings add up.

Lower overhead is just one ingredient toward a successful business venture--home based business ideas also need to be unique. If your idea isn't special enough to set it apart from others, the savings from running your business at home may not be enough to overcome its novelty ... or lack thereof. The stars have to be aligned just right to make a business successful, and basing it at home puts the odds in your favor.
