Here is a recent article from The article talks about how Home Based Businesses are not easy. Funny, I can’t remember anything worthwhile being easy.

Jamie Gerdes of Sioux Falls, S.D., is hoping a $150
investment means she can leave her full-time job and stay home with her
10-month-old son, Boston.

"He’s my first baby, and he’s almost a year old," said Gerdes, 26. "I feel like I’m missing out on things."

So Gerdes looked into home-based businesses and
discovered Uppercase Living, a company that creates decorative
lettering and embellishments for homes.

fairly new to our area, and a lot of people haven’t heard of it yet,"
Gerdes said. She signed on as a consultant and bought her startup
materials last month; she has booked three shows and will earn a 20
percent commission off whatever she sells.

home-based sales are on the rise, and most often involve women. But
earning a living with a home-based direct-sales business isn’t always
easy — nor are the companies always legitimate.
