Ten Great Reasons to Work from Home
Do you dream of working from home? Are you considering making that change and having the flexibility to spend more time doing the things you love? It's becoming more and more common as people explore options like telecommuting and starting their own home-based businesses. Here are the reasons I started building my business at home!
1—The rising cost of fuel! This can be a huge expense, not only in dollars but also in your time and the wear and tear to your car! To put into plain terms: assume you commute 30 minutes per day, that saves you eleven hours per month, or 132 hours per year not to mention the cost of gas and miles you would put onto your vehicle.
2—If you have a phone and a computer with internet access you have it all! You can be almost as connected from your house as you can from any office. Also you have a portable office so if you want to get work done, say while your child is playing at a great play cafe you can bring your work with you!
3—Decreased clothing costs. You really can get away with one good outfit of your choice and a few separates since you’ll only be “dressing up” for meetings. The typical work from home outfit: sweats (shorts in summer) and a t-shirt. A week’s worth of work from home outfits at any good discount store: $60 USD. Some people profess to get professionally dressed just as if they were going to the office, but that just seems silly to me.
4—Increased productivity. There are no co-workers dropping by to gossip about dating, dieting or drinking dilemmas. Of course, you need to refrain from too much facebook, myspace, twitter etc but it is easier to ignore an email or a status update than it is to dodge an obnoxious co worker. Another bonus is that there are no pointless meetings where you have to wait for late comers or for the presenter to prepare at the last minute! With online meetings, email and the phone, you may find you don’t need meetings at all.
