The Perks Of Working From Home
If you need to finally come to a decision one way or the other if working from home is for you or not, this article will help you. You should also know that there are many people who enjoy working from home more than any other job they have ever had. If you asked the people who work from home if they would trade in their world for a new career, they would most likely laugh and say “no way!”. The top perks of working from home are listed below. This may help you feel confident with your decision and also help you feel confident you are making an educated decision.
First of all, working from home allows you to make your own hours. You will be able to decide how many hours you work and when you will work them. If you hate waking up to an alarm clock, you don’t have to when you work from home. If you are a night owl, and like to work in the evening, you do not need to explain yourself or feel guilty! You decide if you work part time, full time, or somewhere in between. The biggest perk is that your hours and the amount of work you do is 100% up to you.
Second, working from home allows you to save more money than you ever thought possible! Some of the “hidden costs” of being an employee are gas or train/bus fees to commute back and forth to work, parking costs (if you work in a city, or park using a garage or meter), coffee, lunch, possibly dinner if you work late, and uniforms or dress code clothing. These costs can add up to $100-$200 dollars each week!! Subtract that amount from how much you earn, does your “job” seem worth it? Add up how much you will save by working from home, plus the perk about choosing your hours and work load, and you will see that working from home is becoming more and more attractive.
Lastly, you will feel much more independent and free when you decide to work from home. You will feel free from your boss and the people in charge to keep track of you. You will become your own boss, and make your own rules. As long as you set hours, actually work during those hours, and give great service to the consumers you acquire, you will have a great customer retention rate, and you will see that working from home takes work, but is a much more simple, fun, and empowering way to build a lifestyle.
As you will probably already realize, working from home has many perks, some that are listed above, and some that have not been specified yet. One way to make sure working from home is right for you is to take in account the above information, and make a chart of the reasons you want to start a home business and why it will be in your best interest to do so. Then on the other side of the chart, write down why you do not think home business would benefit you, and why it would not be in your best interest to start a home business. When you finally look at what your results are, you will most likely have your answer in an obvious way.
