Your Home Working Advantages

Aug 17, 2007
For many people, working at home is the Field of Dreams of their working career.

After all, many of us dislike our jobs because of dealing with incompetents, mean and petty people and management. Perhaps we also dislike what we receive for doing those jobs even less. Some of us also have difficulty dealing with our superiors, who may or may not be good people who were improperly chosen to lead others. Given all these factors, working at home, in the peace and comfort of your own abode, seems like an incredibly good idea.

You too have surely thought about working at home, and you must first consider all the variables that will be involved in your potential decision and even allow for the unknown. Working at home, like working outside, carries its own set of advantages and disadvantages. It would be good for you to scrutinize each argument, pro and con, and examine how much weight such arguments should have on your decision.

Some of the advantages of working at home include:

Being your own manager. Most people resent having to work for the benefit of someone else. Some of us are naturally selfish; we want our work to primarily benefit us. As an employee, your work primarily benefits the company that you work for, and your boss. You receive a salary, but you feel that the amount you receive does not correspond to the full value of the labor that you rendered or want.

Being in charge of your own time, our most precious life commodity. It is frustrating to have your time subject to the caprices of others. How many fathers and mothers have missed their son's baseball, soccer or football games because they had to attend an important meeting? Working at home means that you are the only one who takes control of your time. You can do what you want to do, when you want to do it. You are your own disciplinarian.

Possibility of large gains. As we've mentioned above, when you work for a salary, you only receive a portion of the value of the service you feel you rendered. But if you own your own venture and are working at home, you not only receive the fruits of your own labor, you have the possibility of receiving the fruits of another's labor, such as when you hire your own employees.

If your business takes off, then you have an opportunity to earn more money in a year than you otherwise would've gotten throughout your entire lifetime, had you stuck with your regular boring job.

Being able to choose your own associations. Not being stuck in an office, with no windows, means that you won't have to put up with people that you can't stand. Instead, you can choose who you want to do business with, and ignore those who aren't as relevant.

Working at home is not a financial cure-all but, even in the toughest of circumstances, it is a mighty fine start. In fact, you can expect to have a rough time, especially at the beginning. However, as long as you stay disciplined and do the work that you have to do, write down all your goals and review them everyday, then implement the steps to get to them, you can expect your venture to grow, and your profits to grow as well.
