Alternative Lifestyle Business Opportunities

Alternative lifestyle business opportunities are often THE reason women look to create businesses at home. We want to spend more time with our children and families, and we want to live a healthier and less stressful lifestyle.

We are not talking about alternative relationships or family lifestyles, but rather alternative work and economic lifestyles that free us from some of the enormous stresses of modern living, like hour long commutes on crowded freeways and 80 hour work weeks.

For many women working in today's economy it's no longer a viable or healthy way to live or to raise a family. THIS motivates us to seek alternative lifestyle business opportunities (ie a home based business)!

This was very much a part of my decision to find alternative business opportunities. I needed a way to work at home that would allow me the flexibility to devote the majority of my attention to the spiritual work that my heart was called to, and that would also increase residual income so that I could continue to be paid during the times I was engaged in charity work and other unpaid forms of service to God.

One of the challenges women run into in seeking alternative lifestyle business opportunities is that the realities of being a business owner are often equally or MORE demanding than the full time job of motherhood! You need to be highly motivated, and to have excellent work habits in order to profit from your home based business.

If you are like me, and owning your own business is your ONLY option, then you WILL find a way to make this happen despite the demands, pressures, and the steep learning curve involved in running a business.
