There are currently 38 million home based businesses in America. Due to the cost effectiveness of running a business out of one’s home, a new home based business appears every 12 seconds. Small business owners have many options to help reduce not only costs, but their carbon footprint by using the space they already have. Homes and apartments alike are more than suitable for an office space and with the advent of online programs that connect nearly everyone, working from home has become socially acceptable with companies encouraging remote offices.
