This study explored the financial success of 620 family-owned home businesses. Characteristics of the home business owner, of the business, and of the owner's managerial practices both within and outside the business arena were systematically evaluated. Personal and family characteristics of the owner-operator were more powerful variables in explaining the amount of income generated by the business than were dimensions of the business, although both categories played significant roles.
