The main benefits of working from home are you can work for yourself and be your boss. And starting your own home business is one way to do that.
You can work from home at the convenience of your employer. which is commonly referred to as telecommuting.
Either way, there are benefits as well as downfalls depending on your point of view.
Ultimately it comes down to how you handle the responsibility of not having someone looking over your shoulder all day long.
I am in a positive mood today, so let’s keep it upbeat and focus just on some of the benefits of working home, and see if that is something that you would love for your life.
More Balance In Your Life
In surveys conducted over 50% said balance in their lives was the number one benefit of working from home.
The ability to balance work and family time is much easier done when you’re doing it from home as opposed to getting up and leaving your house to go to work.
You will have more control over your schedule if you are your boss.
However, many telecommuting jobs focus more on the results than they do the actual hours you are working, so if you’re lucky enough to find this kind of a job you still have the majority of control.
Many people like the idea that not only are they making money at home they are also saving money. At the top of this list would be the amount of money you save on gas driving back and forth to work.
Of course, you’re not going to have to spend money on lunch, clothes, entertainment after work, and so on. You may be able to save money on daycare as well so all of these can add up to a considerable amount of money and be real benefits of working at home.
The number of people who drive back and forth to work clog up the roads and this can be a source of time lost as well as real frustration for many individuals who have to work outside the home.
The worst amount of traffic you have one working at home is your 30-second commute into your home office. If you can handle that this is a real benefit!
Get More Done
Many people who work from home report that they are more productive working for themselves than they would be going into a job. Part of this stems from the fact that you have fewer distractions from other employees around you.
If you’re the type of person that likes to focus on what you’re doing as long as you are also avoiding distractions around you at home, you can accomplish a lot in a shorter amount of time. This can be a real benefit if your income is based more on results than it is on an hourly wage.

If you set up your home office in a way that is enjoyable to you, you’ll find that you have less stress working from home, than you might often have at a job outside of your home. Of course, it is up to you to make this happen!
People who have their own business find it stressful not to have a consistent paycheck or benefits coming in. To prevent this from happening it’s to your advantage not to go full-time into your own business until you have an adequate amount of cash reserves to take the pressure off of you.
Many people have trouble leaving their job and going to work for themselves at home because they don’t want to lose the job they have.
However, this can also be a disadvantage regarding the opportunities afforded to you in your current career.
If you start your own home business using the Internet, for example, there are opportunities all around you as you begin to look into them. This can be very exciting and an actual benefit as you branch out and tackle some of these new opportunities.
Another thing is it can be very stimulating mentally to try new things. A lack of boredom can be a significant enough benefit to get some people to either look for ways to telecommute from home or to start their own home business.
In a job, often times a person’s income is capped. This is not the case when you have your own home business.
You have no ceiling on your income and the idea that you’re increasing the amount of money you make on a regular basis cannot only be beneficial but can be very exciting as well. These type of opportunities are there if you are willing to create and take advantage of them.
Working Away From Home For Yourself
I want to throw in the benefit of working wherever you’re at if you have an Internet business. People who have a job take a pre-planned vacation for a certain amount of time every year.
Individuals who have a successful Internet business can take off and go wherever they can afford to go. There is no time limit on when you have to be back either as long as you have an Internet connection where you’re at.
It’s very common today to see people working on their notebook, tablet, or smartphone. You can do this at the park, or on the beach. You can certainly do it at the hotel you are staying at, or if you are at a friends or relatives house just log onto their Internet.
As you can see the benefits of working from home are many. It is not for everyone, but it may just be what you want or need right now in your life! want to join a Community of people showing you how to do it the right way and become successful?
