Perhaps the most important benefit is being
part of a group of entrepreneurs, sharing information on new
sources of supply, referrals for possible sales, and knowledge.
The fool learns only by personal experience - the wise person
learns even more from the experience of others. If you are
starting a business, many of our members have been at the stage
you are, confronting the problems you face.
Another important benefit is simply the human
interaction with like minded people. Home Business Owners tend to
become somewhat isolated. We offer social cameraderie as well as
business knowledge and support. Being around positive people
helps when things drag.
Our members, and home based businesses in general, are tremendously diverse, from those practicing the oldest of crafts to those on the cutting edge of technology.
Our membership eligibility is anyone who:
has a business they run from the home, or
has a business with an office in the home, or
plans to start one of the above, or
is interested in supporting home business
If this describes you, we invite you to join!
Our members come from many countries, and many backgrounds. We share an enthusiasm for financial independence and the freedom achieved by self-employment. Collectively, we provide a broad spectrum of products and services. Together, we can make the struggle easier and the success more certain.
Membership dues may be tax deductible. Annual dues are calculated at 1/1000 of the Purchasing Power Parity for each person by country, based on the data from World Bank, 15 July 2005. Given a 2000 hour year (50 weeks at 40 hours per week) dues are roughly equal to two hours work for the average person.
