Work From Home Business Verses Having A Job
Working from home has a lot of advantages. You can sleep late if you want, and you do not have to get dressed and apply your makeup. You can be your own boss but you must learn to have discipline. If you hang out all day and watch soap operas, chances are you will not get a lot done.
When you have a job outside the home it usually requires you to get up at a certain time and get dressed. You must then commute to where it is you work. This alone can be expensive since the price of gas is so high. You will also have the hassle of sitting in rush hour traffic. This is especially true if you live or work in one of the larger metropolitan areas. For many, this can mean that two hours of your day is spent in traffic commuting to and from work.
With a work at home job you will be able to work without the hassle of being interrupted by coworkers and you will have more free hours in the day to actually do work. Without having to commute, you will not have to buy gas and you will not have any wear and tear on your tires.
Having a public job means you will have a boss that you must answer to. The same goes for work at home in a sense, but the concept is different. The boss you have at a public job has control over the way perform your work. If you are working at home, you will probably have goals and standards that you must meet, and usually these are controlled by someone else.
Working at home can be a lot cheaper in terms of childcare and eating. If you must pay a babysitter, then you have already forfeited a large portion of your paycheck. If you eat out while at work, this too can become expensive. If you are working at home you will be able to fix you something to eat when you are ready and you will not have any additional food costs. You can also avoid paying childcare expenses, but you will have to work out a plan that allows you to get your work done while the children are at home. This can often be a negative since children can become a distraction.
