A home based business is a small business that operates from the business owner's home office. Home businesses generally lack shop frontage, customer parking and street advertising signs. Home based businesses can now compete with small commercial businesses and save on rent in the process. Faxes, high speed internet connections, dedicated home telephone lines, and cell phones help to make a home-based business a reality. Many home businesses are started off in a much smaller capacity whilst the owner is still employed elsewhere, and then expanded once they are proven to be profitable.
