Good for you, good for community

You're seeing the benefits in time freedom, sustained financial security, and wide-open opportunity. But did you know that your home-based business is also part of a growing trend that benefits your community and region?

A white paper on economic development alternatives published by Oklahoma State University offered: "... a 1994 survey found that 125,000 Oklahoma home-based businesses generated over $3 billion in income." (See Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, document AGEC-915.)

And consider how your business growth does not involve the overhead and infrastructure impact of traditional businesses. Your local chamber of commerce may focus on the folks with the storefronts and offices. But you are making your mark on your local economy. And your prospects have never been better to keep doing that in a bigger, and bigger way!
