    At one time businesses didn’t take you seriously if you where home based. It’s different now. Being home based means you are actively social distancing. We have very little direct contact with our customers now and that suits our customers fine. Being home based is becoming so common now, that the stigma is fading away.

    So far, we love our new business model. So much of our sales Dollars (pounds) stay with us now. We have all the work we can handle, but we have much more control.

    We have a good bunch of industry partners that we work with on jobs that we can no long do in-house. Mark up is a wonderful thing.

    Maybe it’s time for a “Home based” forum. Rob. 🙂 There are a lot of considerations to think about. Primary is obtaining City permission to run a business out of a residence. We’ve been through all that and more. I’d be happy to share our experiences, just ask.
