Why Work From Home?
At some point, you may find yourself wanting to work from home. Deciding to work from home is a major decision and can be a very rewarding one. Working from home has many advantages. Some of the most important that I’ve found are listed below:
1) Better Work-Life Balance: This is a major pro of working from home. Working from home allows you to set your work hours around your personal life and the needs of your family. Not the other way around. You will, however, have to keep project deadlines in mind and try to keep yourself free from distractions as you work.
2) Save time and money: No more commute or having to spend unnecessary money on gas, work attire, childcare, etc. Most people commute a minimum of 30 minutes each way to work. This will give you at least an extra hour in your day to do other things that you enjoy.
3) Greater Levels of Satisfaction: Less stress with work means greater personal satisfaction and happiness. This happiness and satisfaction will filter down to all areas of your life.
4) Tax Benefits – Working from home provides incredible tax benefits. You can write off equipment, supplies and even a portion of your home or car if they are used for business purposes.
I have listed a few of the most important benefits that I find from working at home. What are other benefits that you see?
