Working from Home

A recent article, 4 Reasons to Stop Working from Home (and What to do Instead) by Taylor K. Gordon says that many people dream about working from home, but it’s not perfect all of the time.

Here are four reasons why working from home is intimidating and tips to beat them.

  1. Your profession and your personal life get intertwined.

When you work from home your work life and personal life are mixed up and the result can be an increased amount of stress.  So in order to separate your work life from home life, designate a dedicated home office space.  

  1. You can get pulled in many directions.

You are tempted to take unnecessary breaks from work like doing the household chores and watching TV.

If you’re going to work from home, schedule a specific time to do the household chores or leave it until the evening. This way you can really focus on your work for a few hours.

  1. You may not be able to network with other business owners.

Working from home all of the time may mean that you will not be able to connect and collaborate with other business owners in your community where you can find clients and ideas.

Sign up for an affordable coworking office space to get out of the house once in a while and help you network at the same time.

  1. It can be boring.

Working from home day in and day out can be lonesome. Venturing out of your home and working at a coffee shop, restaurant or shared office space can inspire new ideas for your business.
