A majority of small business opportunities are passed by because of the capital required to start a small business. You need a product or service, a base of operations, a workable infrastructure, employees, and so many other things. The odds are stacked against business owners considering nearly one million new businesses start up every year and a vast majority of them fail within their first year.

Most people know that the tax laws lean towards business owners and not employees. In fact, owning your own business is the best tax shield in the world because of the potential deductions. It's worth starting your own home-based business simply for the tax benefits, although that is not a good reason to start one. Consider it a fringe benefit.

The Perks of Small Business Opportunities

I am a small business owner and the one thing that appealed to me most about business ownership was not having a boss. I've made an excellent living as an employee earning linear income. Linear income is how most people earn their living; they trade their time for money. However, when I don't work, I don't get paid. The same is not true for business owners.

Certain small business opportunities offer a great deal of value right out of the gate and other small business opportunities really take time to cultivate. In all honesty, most business ownership opportunities require time and commitment if you want success. The better businesses out there require aspiring owners to take little risk for potentially huge rewards.
