I would say that home based businesses are very, very popular in this country. Home based businesses in the advent of computers and faxes have presented entrepreneurs with a multitude of options on how they want to conduct business. Many small businesses are sole proprietorships out of their home or may be a second revenue stream. Working out of the home is a way of minimizing your overhead costs. There are also tax benefits from working out of your home.

A lot of home based businesses do all their business on the web for example.
