It’s days like today that I am MOST happy, thrilled and excited about the fact that I decided to run my own home-based business again. It’s been years since I was able to go to my kids’ Halloween parade at school. And I’m so excited for the rest of the holidays throughout the end of the year - I haven’t been able to bake cookies, do early Christmas shopping, or host Thanksgiving in years as well. These are some of the traditions that make my life joyous - and working at home makes it possible for me to have my cake and eat it too!

Some of you are still in a job outside of the home, longing to take the leap into home based business-land. Are you ready? Well, if you can say yes to at least ONE of the following, you had better start giving a home business some serious consideration. Three of them should be a wake up call. If you have more of five of them you had better stop reading this blog right now and start on that dang business plan!! (Come back later though for help along the way!! ;) )

Anyway, here’s the 10 Signs that You are Ready to Start a Home Based Business ::

Your work-life schedule has become unmanageable

You have a dream that has become an obsession

You are willing to do whatever it takes in order for your business to succeed

You dream of business plans and of marketing strategy

You are willing to start your new business in your off hours and give up some of your free time

You have the ability to go 2-6 months without any self-generated income [either by tapping into savings or by cutting expenses enough to live off of one income]

Your “I shoulds” and “I wish’s” are becoming “I musts”

You have a nagging feeling that you aren’t living up to your full potential, and you have decided to do something about it

You are getting little hints from the universe that it is time to put up or shut up

That little voice that used to say “I can’t do that” is now wondering “Hey, CAN I do that?”

[Hint :: yes, you can!! Do it now!!]

    I love the idea that budding entrepreneurs should be on the lookout for *signs* that it’s time. The Law of Attraction at work, eh? :)

    I think our posts complement one another quite well today. I hope your readers begin thinking seriously about the signs in their lives and then head over to Mindful Entrepreneur to consider connecting self improvement with business success!

    P.S. Did we *attract* these related posts???

    There are other signs too. Like believing you are very creative (even though you may not be, but belief is what matters). A belief you know something which others have missed. And perhaps some grand plan to make difference at a very hig scale. But too much daydreaming and little action can work against you. As in my case.

    Great post. So many people get caught up in dreaming but never take the next step. Your post does a great job of letting them know that it’s okay to take the next step.
