Build a successful home-based business

Starting a home business? Already running one? Watch the video below to learn how our Home Business Success Community can help you avoid costly, time-sucking mistakes as you build and grow your own home business.


A blinding flash of the obvious

Recently, while working from home on a client project, I had a flash of clarity about what the "new normal" that everyone is talking about will look like. Since I have been working from home for more than ten years, this "lockdown" doesn't seem all that different to me. My home-based business is chugging along, full steam ahead. 

A shifting landscape

Previously, while driving in my car, I heard an interview on NPR, in which a researcher spoke of potential permanent changes in the way we all do business. Malls have seen the decline of once-great anchor businesses, and across the country some malls have gone dark completely. 

Big changes coming

In this environment, experts say that many Mom and Pop businesses may not survive a possible recession from this virus-shuttered economy. Not unless they change their fundamental way of doing business.

At home and online

That fundamental change of which he spoke is a shift from conventional brick and mortar to doing business online. If you sell products or services, do that from your website as you begin to transition from working out of an actual physical location. In other words, do business from home.

Time to start a community!

So back to my blinding flash of the obvious: I've been working a home-based business for more than a decade.  It's time to form a community of like-minded folks looking to make the transition from traditional 9-5 jobs to home-based businesses. And from brick and mortar to virtual business. The time is now!

You're not alone!

The biggest complaint we keep hearing from home business owners is that you feel alone. The weight of all your decisions weighs heavily with nobody around to bounce ideas and share what works. With The Home Business Success Community, we're all in this together. We love to help each other succeed!

"Self-Propelled Marketing Academy courses and memberships always worked for me! The Home Business Success Community is chock full of great ideas for those who want to run a successful home business with the support of already-successful home business owners."

Mark Lew
Business Owner

"The Home Business Success Community is a fantastic resource. It's a place for people to share their experiences and expertise. It's also a place to learn from others. In our Zoom meetings, I have learned several things which I put into practice immediately. Think of them as A-Ha moments. I strongly suggest membership for all who run their own business."

Steve Jencks
Owner, Incredible Towns WNC

"I have been self-employed for over 35 years. Many of those early years were a challenge, since I had never studied business courses and did not understand running a business. I knew that I wanted to own a business without understanding what that meant. The resources that you have put together in the Home Business Success Community would have saved me time, energy, money and gray hair. I applaud your efforts and thank you. I am still learning how to be successfully self-employed. "

Jeff Percival
Owner, Percival Enterprises

"When Hank told me about the Home Business Success Community, I was very interested. I was used to working with a large number of people. Working at home on my own business has been very rewarding but I miss people. With this group Hank curates the connections. He has weekly interviews with other home business owners, meetings with topics we all deal with, and we can connect with other business owners, which is very important. The Home Business Success Community is a great way to connect to other home business owners who are dealing with similar issues being based at home. I like the community for connections, resources and friendships. Thank you, Hank, for bringing us together and curating so much great content. "
