Working from home
In the tough economic times we are facing these days all over the world working from home is an option considered by many. But what benefits will you get if you work in your apartment or house?
There are actually quite a lot of possible advantages for anyone that is considering to take this route and generate an income from home.
Good reasons to start
working from home
- Be your own boss - What a great feeling to be in control of your destiny and not to have anyone to report to that is more often than not unappreciative of your efforts and services. For many it is a liberating feeling to be able to be themselves. It will bring out the best in them.
- No commuting between home and work - This was a biggie for me. When all the neighbors and old colleagues are biting their time being stuck in rush hour traffic, you can still spend a few extra minutes in bed or enjoy your breakfast and morning paper (Online news). In addition to the stress that you are avoiding every morning and afternoon you gain as well some valuable extra time that you can use to focus on your business and save a significant amount of money every month at the petrol station.
- Do what you are passionate about - Millions of people are spending years and even all their working lives in dead end jobs that they not enjoy or even hate. What a waste of precious life time. We are all blessed with God given talents and interests and we should attempt to put them into practice and use them to generate an income for us and our families. What a difference it makes if someone works on something or with something that he is passionate about, that doesn't even feel like work! The results will almost always be far better than those produced in disliked jobs and the quality of life will surely be better by far. Products of services delivered with joy and passion will bring great results and should generate a good income as well.

- Organize your own work schedule - It can be limiting to
be forced into a standard 8 hour working schedule. Many people are much
more effective if they can organize their own flexible schedule and can
as well put in some additional hours in early in the morning, after
supper or on the weekend.
- Be able to focus on the task at hand
- How often do people in a traditional working environment come and
disturb you and your train of thoughts when you are right in the middle
of solving a problem or are just on the brink of getting your creative
juices going? This can have a serious impact on productivity. Having
your own office or workshop at home enables you to retreat into your
space when you feel like it and work uninterrupted on your tasks at
- Earn the money you deserve - No matter how hard you
work or how qualified you are as long as you are working for an
employer your income possibilities are always limited and depending on
his/her good will! Working from home will not guarantee you riches but
you will be the captain of your own destiny. Whatever you are putting
into your business venture will come back to you! The greater your
efforts the greater should be your rewards.
- You decide the dress code
- If you are not a fan of formal dress codes that force you into
uncomfortable outfits, suits and tie you can avoid all of that when you
are working from home. Who is stopping you to writing your email
correspondence or close a few business deals over the phone while still
in your pajamas or a comfortable outfit of your choice People that feel
comfortable will usually be more productively as well.
- Better protection against colds
- How often did you catch a cold at work when a colleague came to work
despite being sick and coughing and sneezing the hole day?

working from home you will be able to avoid scenarios like this much
better which will reduce your days that you will be off sick and as such

mentioned steps are by far not a complete list of all the benefits you
might experience when you are working from home but the are definitely a
good start to give the option of a home based business, workshop or
