According to an article from http://www.nytimes.com, many unemployed Americans have been forced to fend for themselves because of the recession. The article references these people as, accidental entrepreneurs, unintended entrepreneurs or forced entrepreneurs. Accidental or by design, entrepreneurship is on the rise again this year. LegalZoom.com, the online legal document service, says the number of new businesses it helped to form was up 10 percent in the first half of the year, compared with the period a year earlier.

Valerie Jennings, CEO of Jennings Social Media Marketing, said that home-based business owners should take advantage of social media. "Twitter, Facebook and blogs are inexpensive to manage and can be managed from anywhere. Another tool that is highly beneficial to home business owners is Web videos. Viral Web videos are effective because of search engine optimization (SEO). That means: how people search for your name, your company and the types of keywords your prospects might be using. The headline and description of the video are also critical to SEO," said Jennings.

Willoughby added that he designed the 3 Step Plan to help gain control over their professional lives and finances. "I think the easiest way to actually be able to increase your income is to become an entrepreneur and develop your own business. People want financial freedom, but they don't want their lives to be consumed by work. You can earn a good income but also have a life too. Now, especially with the growth of social media, it is easier for a business owner to have a handle on many aspects of their business right from home. Whether it is Facebook, a blog, Twitter or a website, it can be managed from home and are vital to the success of a business," said Willoughby.
