There are innumerable home based businesses out there that are only too eager to take the start up fee but often abandon the newcomers striving to make a success of their business.

Active duty military spouses find it difficult to remain consistent in the workforce. Military of all branches endure frequent moves due to the base needs for personnel and spouses are handicapped when trying to help support their families.

As an active duty spouse, Karla Kohlenberg found an alternate option to traditional employment. Kohlenberg began a home based business to assure employment. She launched a home based website which offers many advantages to the spouse looking to start a home based business. The business provided only a small startup cost and few overhead expenses. She says there is no pressure to work within any time lines and claims a one year period to running smoothly, as opposed to a five year period offered by most other home based businesses. Studies show that 98% of home businesses fail, but Kohlenberg states that outstanding customer and technical support are key, giving individualized support specific to individual needs

The option is portable since active duty military and their families can be deployed anywhere. Spouses that find themselves overseas may experience difficulty finding acceptable work due to gender and personal safety issues. Spouses must find work inside the military base but they outnumber job availability, which makes a home based business a perfect solution.

Kohlenberg has found that home based businesses provide convenient, flexible schedules rather than a structured, conventional employment site. Availability is 24/7, 365 days of the year. Spouses who have small children can work around the family schedule.
