A great number of small businesses are home-based, so the competition for this award was fierce.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Egg Marketing & Communications, a content marketing firm based in San Diego, has been recognized as one of the top home businesses in the nation by StartupNation 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 2014 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.”
“A great number of small businesses are home-based, so the competition for this award was fierce,” said Susan Payton, President of Egg Marketing, “We are honored to have made the Top 100, due in part to the support of our supportive online community.”
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 ten categories for 2014 include:
- Most Innovative
- Boomers Back in Business
- Highest Vote-Getters
- Recession Busters
- Most Slacker-Friendly
- Most Glamorous
- Savviest in Social Media
