Working at home is a growing trend of the self-employed and also corporate downsizing.
All you need is your desktop or laptop and a fast internet connection and you’re on your way. No need for pushing yourself to the limits because you have no one driving you crazy or boss putting your work down.
The boss is you and you alone! You decide when to go to work and when you are done. You decide where you want to work, and you can even be employed by many employers to work at home for their company too. But owning your own business is really the goal.
Working from home is cheaper for the employer.
Let’s face the truth, traveling to and from work is a stressful time of our day, especially if the weather is screwy or there are massive traffic delays. For this reason, it is better to stay at home in front of your PC for the day and do all your business transactions with more freedom. Our home is our sanctuary; therefore it is easier to work.
There is no dress code. Another nice thing I like in home-based work is you don’t need to impress anyone by the clothes you wear. No need to wear suits or ties. No winter coats if your workplace is too cold. When you work at home, you have no limitations. You can just be yourself. You can wear anything you like.
When you are working at home, the freedom is completely yours. You can instantly dive in your bed when you are sleepy. You can eat anything inside your fridge. You can even ride on your stationary bike while chatting with an important client. There are no officers-in-charge around you to monitor your every move.
Working at home is definitely a pleasure. Who wouldn’t want to work at home? Coastal is perfect for the stay at home
mom, dad, grand-parent. Who wouldn’t want to create their schedule around their life instead of their life around their work schedule?
It’s your goal however, that if you are employed by a company that you could start your own business and do your own tasks each day, that will make you money, instead of a faceless corporation, that realistically, does not care about its employees, other than making a buck off of them.
Deep down, one needs to realize that time is money, and the ‘results for work’ economy is where entrepreneurs can make a sizable fortune.
As the years go on, we’ll see more and more of the population leaning towards entrepreneurship, like it was over 100 years ago, when most people were self-employed.
