25% of people want to own their own business

I saw an article the other day that said “25% of people would like to own their own business”.



Now they do say that Britain is a nation of ShopKeepers, but even so, this figure surprised me, because I see so many people out there just looking for jobs, not looking for ways to start a business.


However, I have been self employed for over 6 years now, and I know that it is not as hard as it sounds. The boom in home-based businesses has transformed the way people can earn money.


There was a survey done some time ago, that looked at 100 25 year olds, and found that, by the time they are 65…

  • 1 will be rich
  • 4 will be financially independent
  • 6 will still need to work
  • 32 will be dead
  • 57 will be dependent on the state


Now the top 2 groups (i.e. 5% of the survey) typically own their own business, so clearly that is the key to having a wealthy lifestyle.

However, most people do not want to start a traditional business, because you need to have a large lump sum to get started, or remortgage your home, or take out a huge loan. You usually have to work for 2-5 years just to break even, and are tied in to rents, rates and other overheads.


So what are the alternatives?


As I mentioned earlier, the rise in Home-based businesses give you the freedom and earnings potential of a traditional busines, without the risks and costs of a traditional business.


My home-based business of choice is Kleeneze. It has been around for such a long time, it is a tried and tested business with a well-known Brand, so it is really easy to see how people earn money just delivering catalogues, and showing other people how to do the same. Work hard, build a strong team, and the residual income gives you the financial independance that you could never have with a job, without taking the huge risks of starting a traditional business.


If Kleeneze is not for you, have a look around – there are lots of opportunities out there.
