San Diego, California (PressExposure) June 29, 2009 -- The National Association of Home-Based Business Moms (NAHBM), a recently formed organization to support women who already have a home-based business or want to start one, has announced a new Free Starter Membership is now available at [http://www.nahbm.com].
âWe know due to the current economy that money is tight for many families. We also know that now is a great time to start a business. In an effort to help those moms who have recently been laid off or who are looking for an alternative to working outside the home, we are now offering free membership so they can get the support they need,â announced Debbie LaChusa, NAHBM founder and president.
LaChusa believes now is a great time to start a home-based business and she is supported by a recent study by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation that found more than half of the companies on the 2009 Fortune 500 list and nearly half of the firms on the 2008 Inc. list of Americaâs fastest-growing companies were launched during a recession or bear market.
âI started my home-based business 11 years ago and Iâve never experienced a downturn in my business when the economy has slowed down. In fact last year was my second best year ever. Not only do I make more money than I ever made working in a job, Iâve been able to be home with my children. For all these reasons, running a home-based business is a great alternative for moms,â added LaChusa.
