In short yes you have "home business" listed too many times and leads to a less focused site. The more different keywords you use then the less focused the site will be so less is more.
In the past I tried like using 15-35 keywords and match it with descriptions but I found out almost by mistake I jumped up in rank
to the first page when I just used 3 keywords and have the description reflect the changes in the keywords.
So keyword density in the description matters as well as a good theme.
But you have to play around for a few days or weeks to find your match of keywords that suit your site best.
