When I began Homepreneurs in the summer of 2010, I had just returned to work after spending 2009 without a job. I volunteered (for Illinois WorkNet) to assist the unemployed with updating their resumes, interviewing skills, and job search techniques. I met some very talented people through WorkNet and vowed to develop an alternative to traditional employment. Hence, the concept of starting a home business became my rallying point.
Homepreneurs did far better than I ever expected or anticipated. In retrospect, I would have planned better in advance, had I known. At 37,000 plus visits and counting, I feel the concept is solid and viable. With future economic prospects uncertain – Spain’s unemployment is 25% – a need for private sector growth and innovation remains.
Homepreneurs is a no charge service. I have not made a single dime for the hundreds to thousands of hours invested. I’m fine with that. I do this to help so many that are in need, in the United States and elsewhere. Someone has to step up and do things like this blog and similar.
