Working from home has become a dream come true for many business owners. However, before you jump on the bandwagon of this latest trend, a recent article, Will your home business be a dream or a nightmare? by Rhonda Abrams shares the positive and negative aspects of working from home.
Obviously you don’t need to rent another space and buy office furniture. Working from home can help keep costs low which is important for a business that is just starting out.
- Eliminates daily commute
Working from home saves time, money and can reduce stress caused by the daily grind of traffic.
- Flexible hours
You can work anytime of the day as long as you can meet your deadlines. You can even pick up the kids from school and work at night.
- No required dress code
No tight shoes, no stuffy button-up shirts. If you want to wear your pajamas to work, you can.
- No enough space
If your home is not big enough to set up a home office, you will probably end up working on the dining table or in your bedroom which can be uncomfortable.
- No presentable conference room
If you need to meet with clients or hold meetings, your living room may not do the trick.
- Cabin fever
If you spend your entire work week at home, you may find yourself growing restless or uninspired.
- You’re not focused
Interruptions from your family, pets barking while you’re on an important call, looming house chores clouding your thoughts. These are only a few distractions that can spring up while working from home.
