Jun 4, 2020

Every time that we have to affront difficulties we have to learn to find the way through it and make the best out of it so we can overcome it with our face held high. The coronavirus pandemic has been a huge factor of change for all of us but it has also given us the chance to discover other things and take a better look at innovative technologies and most of all, it has allowed many of us to discover talents we had and wake up our creativity.

The number of people working from home has increased. Only in the US, it seems that nearly half the workforce is remote workers, between those that just started and those that have been a remote long time ago. Many others have started or would like to get started with their own home-based business. Looking at this situation once again we are forced to look at technological alternatives to smooth out things, which is why we have to talk about blockchain.

Blockchain for Home-based businesses.

Starting a home-based business is within the reach of almost anyone who wants to take a risk and work hard. The options are truly bast, just taking into account your own talents or even learning a new job you will find plenty of options to start. For example, if you like bicycles maybe you could start your own bicycle repair business. If you have expertise in any subject then you are just suitable to be a business consultant fro younger people, you can market yourself as an advisor to others looking to work in that area. If you like books and have experience with it maybe it could be the perfect chance for you to become a proofreader or start in copyediting. This is where fact checking takes place, and where grammatical, stylistic, and typographical errors are caught. Or even better, you can start a career as a book author, if you have expertise in something professional like music, design, architecture or if you have any personal skills like knitting or handcrafting then why don’t you write a book about it?

But even though start doing something you like sound easy we are still talking about a business, it means that there should be a way in which you can have some earnings and make it be profitable. Blockchain is indeed the perfect tool for transactions only based on the internet. It means that you don’t need to go down to the bank to create an account for your newly born business but get yourself into crypto.

Imagine you have a hairstyling salon, you can offer your service at home and people can immediately pay you with MintMe for example, or they can buy a fixed service of hand spa and hairstyle by buying MintMe tokens from you. The possibilities are huge.

Blockchain as an amazing characteristic that makes it the perfect fit for home-base businesses and it’s the fact that we are all equally allowed to use it, any person in any place, just with an internet connection can make a transaction through the blockchain. You can check the transactions that have been made and people don’t need to have a bank account to be able to pay you, just you and your creativity

Times have changed

Old thinking invites us to think that employees must be in the office to be productive. But this has changed and we are now seeing all of the advantages it has to work from home: No more distractions in the office environment, no more unnecessarily long meetings and loud colleagues, no more stress related to commuting to work every day or making arrangements to fix up things at home before leaving. 65% of workers said they would be more productive in a home office than in a traditional office space and 75% of people say they are more productive working remotely due to fewer distractions. Also, Around 69% of workers believe technology has made them more productive and 83% of employees feel they do not need an office to be productive.

Home is home, many people agree that working in your own house helps them be more productive and feel more at ease, and it is not a lie that many companies came into the realization that maybe their huge facilities were not even necessary, because now online services are taking over, and working from home is more than just a strategy.

There is something called crowdfunding

Talking about blockchain, we can’t leave it here without talking about blockchain crowdfunding. Starting a home-based business can create flexibility in how you spend your time and make your money. But it isn't a quick process or a guarantee of financial success and it is not cheap either in most cases. To create a home-based business with a solid foundation and earning potential, you'll need to invest time and resources into identifying the right business for you and creating a plan. If you want to become a bicycle repairer then you must get a nice place to settle your business, buy the necessary tools and materials that you need, if you want to become a jeweler maker than you will also need expensive tools and machinery to make your art from home. Blockchain crowdfunding is for everyone, anyone can create a token at and start a campaign to fundraise for their home-based business and for their projects, any dreams they may have.

Having a token will also give you a better sense of property, since it will be part of the brand that you are creating, and at the same time it will be the tool to let people know about your project and you will create a more solid chain and community of clients and people that love your idea.

Do what you’d like to do

Any business requires times and dedication, a long-term commitment and a clear understanding of what you want, this is the reason why the best home-based business you can create is the one you start because you are passionate about the work and interested in the process involved.

Sit down and consider your personal talents and your professional achievements. Are you more fond of creativeness than logical thinking? do you like to work with kids? Are you really good at doing something? Do you learn quickly? Your talents are what is more important and they will become the base of your business and also they will be what makes a home-based work the work you have always dreamed of and you can start funding to make it become a reality through mintme.
