New York, NY (PressExposure) February 05, 2011 -- A brutal winter has kept many away from work for much of January & February this year, according to several sources. Those running home-based businesses online are in the clear, though.
According to Zabubli.com, while a great part of the United States may be snowed-in and many of us getting enough of these 'snow days', there are still thousands of Americans going to work every day regardless of the weather. These are ordinary people with a somewhat extraordinary line of work -- they work from home, over the Internet.
"It's takes a certain amount of discipline, for sure... but the fact is that you're your own boss" says Zabubli. "Sure, I'll take a snow day if I feel like it and if my business allows it at that point in time. You have to be mindful of your business and your customers first"; Zabubli added.
Working with drop shipping companies has become more popular as aspiring entrepreneurs look to start making an income working from home. This type of business model allows just about anyone to set up shop online via eBay or their own online store, and have a chance at making income by using wholesale drop shippers.
"The best part is that you have no inventory, no managing that inventory -- none of the hassles and overhead that come with carrying such a massive inventory. At the same time, you have the ability to sell thousands of products through the Internet sitting at home"; says Zabubli.
"Yes, it's not a get rich quick thing like many will have you think. It requires dedication and motivation -- having the right knowledge and how to set-up your business definitely helps"; Zabubli added.
While working from home may not be everyone's cup of tea, being in such a position has surely proven to be an advantage for home-based business owners this year.
