Benefits of Starting a Home Business Training Course

If you are a self-employed trainer, you will understand why some people might want to be their own boss and start a home-based business.

Being self-employed has its challenges but also its rewards, as it can give you the ability to be in charge of your own time and make your own decisions. In addition, by starting a home business, you will not need to spend time and money commuting.

If you do not commute, you will end up spending more time with your family and/or on your favorite hobbies. If the business is not geographically bound to a specific place, you will even be able to work from anywhere in the world you wish to.

However, running a home-based business is not easy and it presents a series of challenges. This course aims at helping participants address and overcome those challenges.

Benefits of Running This Course for a Trainer

As a trainer, you may want to run seminars for independent delegates to attend.

A course on starting a business from home is a good topic for a seminar that you can advertise and run independently, as it is common for people to seek new career paths in life.

These days, in particular, the Internet has made it more achievable for people to work from home and manage their own time. Thus, a course on starting a home business has the potential to attract a good amount of interest.

Who Is This Course Intended for?

  • This package contains training materials for trainers to provide a 1-day workshop or seminar on starting your own business.
  • This course is for those new to self-employment and who are looking to create a small business of their own.

American & British English Compatible

Suitable for both American English & British English styles.

  • We have avoided any words that can cause confusion between American and British English styles such as soccer/football.
  • We have used terms that are common in both and we have used the American style for a few words where a ‘z’ rather than ‘s’ is used i.e. materialize.

People who may benefit from this course include, for example:

  • Stay-at-home parents who want to work and be their own bosses, while being able to look after their children.
  • People of any age who would like to start a career that allows them to travel or to have a flexible working schedule.
  • Individuals who seek to change their career path because they have been made redundant or are simply tired of what they have been doing and would like to pursue their passion.


1 day

The course can also be run as a series of seminars or workshops in self-development and soft skills, together with, for example, time management or life planning.


Beginner and intermediate, i.e. those who are just starting or planning to start a small home-based business and do not have yet much experience in the field.
