Seattle, WA, March 13, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Small Businesses Do It Better has been recognized as one of the top home businesses in the nation by StartupNation (www.startupnation.com) in its annual Home-Based 100 competition.
Many of the StartupNation Home-Based 100 entries showed that people are leveraging the efficiencies and lower overhead of home-based businesses to pursue their passion and bring in income during these tight economic times.
“The 2012 ranking reveals that home business is serious business - more relevant than ever. It’s a natural response to loss of job opportunities, the need for supplemental income and the sheer passion for blazing your own trail and running your own show,” said Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation.com, one of the leading small business networking and knowledge hubs online. “Home based businesses are the biggest block of all businesses in existence and we expect numbers to grow ever greater as extra bedrooms, kitchen tables, basements and garages increasingly host the innovative thinking and pursuit of success by millions of Americans.”
“Placing in the StartupNation Home-Based 100 Business Competition in the 'Most Innovative' category is what Small Businesses Do It Better is all about and validates our goals. This show is unique in the fact that it is live with a chat component for the viewers to ask questions through the host,” said Carissa Dunphy, Director of Small Businesses Do It Better. “Small businesses are extremely supportive of one another and they want to network and collaborate with other small businesses. What a better way to do so than in real time and in an environment with other like-minded entrepreneurs.”
The StartupNation Home-Based 100 highlights 10 top-ten lists making it not just your ordinary business ranking. From the wackiest, to the most innovative, to the best financial performers – this unique and diverse list highlights the home-based businesses that usually go unrecognized, but still play a vital role in the economy today. The full results of the Home-Based 100 ranking are available on StartupNation’s website at www.startupnation.com/home-based-100/2012-winners.
