I feel that one of the frustrations people have trying to make money on the Internet today is with determining what their exact intentions are. Part of that comes from not knowing if they want to operate a home business or just work at home in the form of a job.

In this article let's take a look at a couple of the differences between home businesses and work at home jobs and how they could affect whether you make money or not.

People that are entrepreneurial by nature tend to do better running their own home business. They enjoy being their own boss and love the challenge of building something from the ground up.

Having a business of your own from home is a great way to make money, however you have no guarantees of a paycheck on a steady basis. Therefore you need to have some income put away in the bank, or continuing to come in from a full time job while you build your home business on a part time basis.

Today telecommuting makes it possible for people to work from home for companies without actually going into an office to do it. For example websites such as match employers with employees who want to stay home and work. This is just one form of a work from home job that you can find.

Other things you can do that are really more along the lines of a job to include data entry, typing at home, writing articles for people, creating graphics, answering the phone, and so on. You are not really building a business yet you are providing a skill that people will pay you for.

There are advantages to both having your own home business and a work from home job. For example with a home business you can create residual income that will allow you to get paid whether you work or not. Network marketing and 2 tier affiliate programs are an example of this.

With a work from home job you do not have to leave the house yet you get paid to stay at home and work. You do not really have any responsibilities when you are done doing your job for that day. If you possess a particular skill there are people willing to pay you to do that.

This is a few differences to keep in mind when you are considering whether you want a work from home job or to start your own home business. The choice is strictly up to you!
