There are many opportunities that become available when a person has access to high speed internet – including the ability to start a business from home. Until recently, those who lived in rural areas felt that they didn’t have these opportunities. Now, with the lowering of prices for satellite internet, people in all areas of the U.S. have access to the super fast speeds that people in other areas have taken for granted. Whether you’re interested in starting a pastry business, a consulting business or you want to sell your crafts from home, the internet makes it possible.
Once you have fast internet service, the sky is the limit. Let’s say that you’ve always been interested in graphic design. Instead of pounding the pavement and looking for clients in your area, you can sign on to global websites like Elance and oDesk that put freelance workers in contact with clients who need work done. Simply get a few samples up, write a smashing proposal and before you know it, you’ll have work doing something you love. Without the internet this just wouldn’t be possible. We now all have the ability to follow our dreams and make them a reality we can count on.
