Starting a home business is a smart move in any economy, and this couldn’t be more accurate as we fight out of the recession and into a time of growth. Recently, I’ve discussed everything from how moms can start their own home business to the benefits of working from home. Today I want to talk about a few statistics I bet you didn’t know. So let me share some info so you can be better informed about the home business market sector as a whole.
Did you know that, according to a recent study, over 70 percent of Americans just like you would prefer to be self-employed?
Did you know that there are an estimated 18.3 million home businesses in the United States and the number of households in the United States that have a home-business exceeds 12 percent?
That number amazed me, I have to admit. The real revelation came when I looked deeper into the stats further. I discovered that over 427 billion…yep “b” as in billion, dollars are made by people just like you working from the comforts of their own home. You have to admit that almost a half trillion being made from home is no tiny figure. And the great news is that tapping into this huge money-making sector is easier than you might think.
In addition, the number of women who own a home business is astounding. Since 1992 the number has risen from 10 million to over 17 million home businesses operated by women, and many of them are moms with children at home.
The success rate among home businesses is strong. Most home businesses started from home stay in the home, while less than 5 percent move outside of the home. This year nearly 20,000 at-home professional entrepreneurs just like you grossed more than $1 million dollars in revenue working from home.
