Business from your Home or Cottage

Over the last 7 days I’ve had conversations with 3 different people who are in the process or have shut down their offices in order to stop driving and run their operation from home. Why…because they now can. Technology in the last few years had allowed people to operate a business effectively no matter where they are, even the cottage. Satellite broadband is now available for under $400 for the equipment and $54.95 month for service. Companies are setting up central servers and have employees login in from home and work from there. On line meetings are easy. Need to speak immediately? Use new cellphone technology or send a message through MSN. With all the talk of reducing emissions, saving the environment and increasing the quality of life it just makes a lot of sense. Why, because you now can.
