Home based business have grown substantially over the last decade with rising corporate layoffs and the trend of Moms becoming entrepreneurs creating many successful home based businesses.
The term Mompreneur has emerged and many Moms across our country are enjoying the success and flexibility of working from home.
The Internet has played a huge factor in the growth of Home Based Businesses as the cost of developing a web based business has dropped substantially over the last 10 years. Today you can launch a web based business for less than $5,000 and with a sound business plan you can earn a very respectable income.
However, Home Based Businesses are not for everyone and Rhea Perry provides great insight on what it takes to succeed as a home based entrepreneur.
Rhea Perry is an expert on starting and managing home businesses. Rhea has educated her seven children since 1987 and represented Lifetime Books as a home school curriculum adviser for five years. Her oldest son became a real estate investor when he was 18 and replaced his dad’s income in just 3 years and created a system for selling houses on eBay in just 7 days. When Rhea’s husband of 33 years passed away last year, the family was thankful for the residual streams of income they had built.
Rhea still home educates three of her seven children, mentors families seeking to learn how to work from home, and hosts the only home business conference of its kind for families to learn about home business.
I was excited to learn that Rhea is hosting a conference around helping families launch home based businesses. The conference is in Destin, FL on April 15th – 17th, 2011 and she will have leading experts in areas from social media, blogging, web development, Internet marketing, virtual assistants and more.
The most exciting news is that Rhea is giving away $10,000 to the entrepreneur with the winning business plan pitch, 2nd prize is $1,000 and 3rd is a Kindle eReader. Rhea really enjoys helping others succeed and giving back. She won a $25,000 business plan prize several months ago and knows that competition is a key motivator for entrepreneurs.
