How to Run a Business from Home

4 of 9

4. You Work at Home. Don't Try to Hide It

"First and foremost, I chose to run my business from home. When I started my Web consultancy, Soapbxx, it became a constant migraine with all the overhead and office space. I've been running Soapbxx from home now for four years. We are brutally honest with our structure and have never lost a client. I find that total honesty about being a home-based business makes everything run better and feel more authentic."

-- Amanda Steinberg, Soapbxx and Daily Worth
