What Are The Advantages Of Working From Home?

Prefer To Listen

In my post ” Your Reasons For The Goal is More Important Than The Goal itself
I explained about the importance of keeping in mind, what you are becoming, having and doing in the process of pursuing your goal.

Here is a question from my Ezine reader:

” What are the advantages of working from home?

What seems to be an advantage for a person, need not be so for another person.

Based on my own experience of working from home for over ten years, I can sum it up like this:

As always, my reason to work from home was more important than just the aspect of working from home. While I was in Corporate America, I used to aspire working from home, but at that time telecommuting was not an option. When my employer downsized, my aspiration was fuelled with reasons for working from home. Hence I ventured into self employment:

Let me quote a few reasons:

1. I wanted to be able to attend to my children’s needs without feeling guilty of taking permission from my employer.

2. I wanted to transform the obstacle of losing a job to an opportunity of exploring self employment.

3. I wanted to really see for myself, not prove to others, if it is possible to work from home and have a profitable business.

While staying foused on what I wanted, I realized the following advantages in working from home:

1. I was able to give quality time to my children, emotionally and physically.

2. I was able to create and follow my own time schedule, not only for working, but also for personal and professional development at my pace.

3. I was able to become more resourceful with minimum resources, when situations demanded.It helped me raise my self esteem and TRUST my Higher Self.

4. The value of profits generated by investing the money, time and effort while working from home was way more than not working from home. The key words here are Value, money, time and effort.

5. I will end with an important NOTE and that is,

a) It requires a lot self discipline and

b) You must loveand accept yourself the way you are, no matter, whether you make money, wear professional attire, be in the physical work environment OR NOT.

    Very nice post. I can identify many of the reason’s one would love working from home. Certainly not about the money, even if that may have been the initial goal.
    You will learn a lot about ones self, while working from home.
    True there is no one to boss you or make you do work you dislike. On the other hand it is harder working for yourself, if you don’t produce there is no one to blame, one has to discipline themselves to attend to the work at hand. So it is
    just like your old job,,,except you can do it in your under ware if you want. There is the challenge to succeed, being a free spirit, to set your own destiny is priceless.

    Lalitha I love the way you not only posted the words, but recorded them for the reader-turned-listener. You are right. Working from home is not for everyone.

    However, current economic conditions have more or less forced some individuals to find their strong points and a way to implement those points.

    Coming from a position where both my husband and I am self employed, I can say that being one’s own boss, and accountable to one’s self, works perfectly for us.

    I can also tell you (or anyone reading) that it can be stressful. Sometimes very stressful. Your entire success is your responsibility. There is no one standing over you making sure you turn in assignments on time, etc.

    Marketing, too, becomes your responsibility. Ensuring that others are aware you exist in a sea of so many self-employed is challenging… but fun!

    Again, it was fun to listen along. I just may incorporate that into my blogging. I do have a welcome audio on the main site, but hadn’t considered it for the blog portion. Great job!
