Want to start your home based online business? It's as simple as that. But you have to believe that it is simple. But people think that starting a business is a complicated one, because of their fear psychosis. If we analyze why people are afraid of taking into business and the difficulties of starting a conventional business, it will help us to understand why starting a business in today's world is simple.

Taking into consideration the whole population, only 5% are doing business and the rest 95% are job goers. The 5% includes both top notched industrialists and the petty small business owners. To get it precise only 1% of this five percent is counting among the top class business people. Another 5% are living a luxurious life and 20% are leading a some what comfortable life. The rest among the 5% is finding it difficult to make both ends meet.

These statistics give us the good reason of why people prefer jobs over business. The old thinking that job is a secured one, is still driving us towards job. But in today's high demanding job environment job is not a secured one and you will be fired up if you are not performed. You have to be on your toes always and it has its own side effects on your health. To keep their employees fit and to motivate them to perform well the corporate world is conducting its won relax camp, meditation, yoga classes and simple exercises in-between the working hours, to serve their self interest. In conclusion it is clear that you cannot avoid the ill effects of conventional business by wisely choosing a job over business.

From our childhood we are advised to study well and get a good job so that our life will be happier. Because of this thinking we get into the vicious circle of working for 40+ hours per week till our retirement and making us dependent on social security. After getting a job we begin to chase our dreams in illusion thinking that one day we will be financially free. The hard fact is that you can't become rich through job and ultimately you end up with a debt serving career.
