Working From Home Advantages  -  Are there Any?

Some people tend to think of working for yourself at home a quite solitary process but is that really the case. Sure, there are advantages to working in a big company surrounded by lots of work mates but what about working from home advantages.

I only bring this up because about fourteen months ago now I got tired of constantly looking for permanent employment and decided to venture into the online world for a possibility of making a living. The first thing I needed to do was to identify some working from home advantages that would appeal to me and drive me onwards.

Sure, it’s nice to have a Christmas party every year at work and the social interaction and characters but could you give that up for going to bed when you wanted and getting up when you wanted every day? I certainly could, and I did.

The problem with trying to make a living online these days is the threat of being ripped off or ‘scammed’. This always seems to outweigh the working from home advantages and puts a lot of people off. Even when I make monetary exchanges today online I hold my breath and wait for some sort of signal to make sure the transaction is not a scam.

This, I know, is very disappointing as I now make a reasonably healthy living online but witness friends and people in general who are more intelligent than me shy away from doing the same thing because of scams. So lets forget about that nasty word ( scam ) and concentrate on a few important working from home advantages.

We have already covered the getting up/going to bed trick ( which is one of my personal favourites ) but what about the dreaded boss! Well, there is no boss - just you! The buck stops with you, the more effort you put in the more you will see in results. This should really give you a bit of drive to get things started.

One of the most important working from home advantages that I noticed was the development of my confidence. When you start out at something new ( especially by yourself ) your nerves are usually shredded by anticipation. By getting things wrong then eventually getting them right I developed a positive mindset which I take into everyday life with me now. The Working from home advantages I have listed here are the one I, myself found valuable. When you venture online to earn yourself then look for other working from home advantages that I have overlooked and use them to your advantage. Remember, the more work you put in - the more success you will see returned.

Good info Chris....I myself do wonder at times why others fear trying to start a business from home...Is it fear of scams or fear of failure...I personally just enjoy the challenge.
