Working from home is increasing in popularity and its not surprising to see why. If you are employed and your employer is prepared to let you work from home, then the flexibility of fitting around domestic responsibilities can be an advantage. If you are self-employed then reduced overheads by working from a home based office can obviously be a real cost saving.
The most common routes to working from home are either to work for an employer who is prepared to let you carry out your business activities from home, or starting up a business of your own which can be home based.
If you are considering making a move to working from home then becoming self-employed is one of the more widely considered options. By choosing a franchise business, you can further increase the likelihood of success as statistics* show that 9 out of 10 franchise businesses trade profitably.
