The idea of running a home-based business is appealing to people of all backgrounds all over the world. On the surface, when comparing a home-based business to working a typical nine-to-five job for someone else, it might seem like a dream come true. However, the reality is that running a home-based business and working for yourself isn’t easy. Here are some of the pros and cons of running a home-based business.
Getting scammed is something that is not easy to deal with. It is complicated and messy to clean up, but there are ways for you to avoid it happening to you. If you take certain precautions with any one that you hire, before you hire them, you should be fine. There are many reasons why a person would try to fake personal information to get a job. One possibility is that the person may be an illegal immigrant, not able to get a job anywhere else.
HOME OFFICE DEDUCTIONS – For a while there was talk that taking home office deductions raised a red flag. As long as your business is legitimate and you designate an area for your home office you are okay. With that you can deduct expenses that you incur in the course of doing business. You can deduct office furniture like file cabinets, desks, office decorating and even office cleaning. You can also deduct rent, utilities, insurance, property taxes, supplies, phones, and repairs made to the office area of your home.
I’m especially pleased with the company I’ve found because they’re very flexible. They’ll do a one-time cleaning, or weekly, biweekly, or monthly cleanings. It’s up to me. Their standard service includes a wide variety of tasks, but I can also arrange for them to do everything from cleaning the inside of my refrigerator to cleaning my backyard deck.
Make sure they can accommodate the cleaning schedule you desire. Daily, once a week, every two weeks, monthly-however often you need them. Will they offer you a decent rate or give you a discount for more frequent visits?
Have fliers printed and get numbers, contacts and names of businesses in your area. Visit company managers or call them to offer your service. Don’t offer the cheapest quotation in town, focus more on giving quality rather than rock bottom prices. When you estimate your fee, consider specific requirements of each company, the time it will take to complete the task, and the size of area to be cleaned. Try to make your fees competitive with others in your industry but don’t aim to be the cheapest.
Using a hard scrub brush, rub the paste into the brickwork and allow it to remain there for about 10 minutes before rinsing off with a clean cloth dipped in warm water. You should see a noticeable difference in the finish of the bricks.
If this still does not give you the results you want, contact a professional office cleaning agency to do the job. Using strong chemicals on your own can be dangerous not only to you but may damage floors, walls and furniture. Do not try more aggressive cleaning methods unless you are sure of what you are doing.
