We are switching gears this week from talking about our usual topic of Internet marketing to letting you know about a webinar that I have been selected to participate in with a presentation on “Working from Home Online.” The event is called International Super Saturday Business Event. In case you want to join us, I will provide the details at the end of this post.

Home-based Business:

While researching for information to include in my presentation, I came across the following interesting statistics about home-based businesses. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the United States alone there are over 18.3 million home-based businesses and close to 60 million worldwide!


I feel these statistics are the driving force in the number of home-based businesses online. According to MITAgeLab, there are approximately 450 million baby boomers worldwide. The number of baby boomers in the United States is approximately 76 million.

The unemployment rate for people 55 and older is at the highest level ever recorded in the post-World War II era.

The ILO (UN International Labour Organization) projects a global unemployment rate of 6.1 percent, equivalent to 203.3 million unemployed. In United States alone, the unemployment rate is 9.1 %, which equals 14 million unemployed. This doesn’t include the 8.8 million other people not counted as unemployed — part-timers who want full-time work.

Internet Users:

According to the UN’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU), there are over 2 billion Internet users. With the world population at 6.8 billion and rising, almost one person in three is online.


According to a recent International Data Corporation (IDC) forecast, the number of home-based U.S. businesses will increase by more than 10% over the next four years to about 21 million.

Work from Home Online Coursework:

start-upAs a baby boomer and unemployed, I decided to start-up a home-based business almost 10 years ago. I made numerous mistakes and wasted a lot of time. Therefore, I wanted to provide those of you who are considering starting up a home-based business some information to help you make an easy transition from working for someone else to being unemployed to not being able to find employment to starting-up your own business.

If you fall into the above-mentioned categories or know of anyone who has found themselves in this position, click here for more details on the coursework that I created. Blessings on your start-up home-based business.
