I ENJOYED the ARTICLE on home-based businesses [HOMEWORK, FEBRUARY] because I am one. Like Christine Campbell, I figured out the corporate life was not for me. I started a self-employed bookkeeping business about 13 years ago. In three years, I hit my 10-year revenue mark.
I think the SOHO (small office/home office) environment will continue to grow because the pluses greatly outweigh the minuses. Technology will continue to improve, opening more opportunities for people to stay at home and work. I listened to several speakers about starting your own company before I did it myself, and it certainly saved me from making a lot of mistakes. I do have one serious regret — that I didn’t do this about 10 years earlier than I did.
Since this is a growing field, I hope Oregon Business will continue to have articles about the SOHOs.
