Technology has been a boon to home-based business owners. While owners in early years were often viewed as not serious owners because of their location, today with the advent of technology, location has become invisible. Home-based business owners have as much visibility as to owners of brick and mortar shops.
If you are thinking of a home-based business, there are lots of resources that can help including:

Starting from home is a great way to test a business idea while holding down costs. The one key factor is to ensure that you can legally operate from your home. Often this depends on local regulations and codes. Be sure to check these out ahead of time as it may save lots of headaches later or even the possibility of having to close the business down.
