8 Greatest Benefits of Working at Home

I always wanted to work from the comforts of our home. Imagine the kind of life that you can have if you don't have to come to the office everyday to spend at least 9 hours working. There will be no traffic, no hassle of travel and no need to spend money for your lunch. Also, when the day is done, you are just a step away and you are home. Some full-time employees are given the benefit of working from home. I, myself, have experience this kind of setup as well but only once per week. But some people are working from home at least nine hours a day, five days per week, for the whole year. These people are either businessmen who creates their own products or services from the comforts of their home or they can be Internet marketers who earn money from blogging, product marketing or even as free lancers. But, what are the real benefits and advantages from working at home? Is it really better than coming to the office to render work? Let's find out.

Have you experienced working at Home?

Benefits of Working from Home

1. You define your schedule.

Are you often late because you woke up late or the traffic has been very heavy when you travel? Or maybe you are the one who is very productive during the night and cannot work well during the day. Since you work from home, you also set what time you are going to start the work and what time it will end. You choose what's the best for you and your business.

2. You are always there for your family.

Have you watched a movie or a television series when there's a rich family owning big businesses but there are always family problems or the members of the family are not close and always have conflicts between each other? That's because most of the time, they focus on their work or business that they forgot their family. When you work at home, you are just a step away from your family. This will benefit people who have family members who are sick or disabled since they don't have to hire or ask someone to take care for them.

3. You don't have a boss.

Some people doesn't get along with their bosses and it often affects their productivity at work. If you choose to work from home, you are your own boss. You decide what you think is right for you. You are not influenced by anyone who tells you what to do, when to do it and where to do it.

4. The feeling of satisfaction.

How satisfying it is to accomplish something for the day and make money out of it - all from within the comforts of your home. Sometimes people who works in the office are demoralized because of what happens around them. When you are at home, you only have yourself and your family who you expect to support you every time.

5. You can achieve your career goal.

Who told you that when you work at home it will be difficult to achieve what you want in your career. It will be more challenging, but the chances to achieve what you plan to yourself in terms of career can also be achieve even if you are working from home. If you want to be a software architect someday, you can, for as long as you know where to find the resources and how to apply and learn it.

6. You can teach your children to do the same.

Someday, when time comes that I will have my own children, I will teach them that they should not aim for the top of the corporate ladder but think of one thing they want and make a living and life from it. If you work from home and do what you love the most, you will be seen by your family and children and they will definitely make a role-model out of you especially when the outcome is very positive.

7. You can help increase your family's income.

Working from home doesn't aim only for the comforts of working on one's home but it also lessens the expenses in travelling and food like your car's gasoline and car park fees and as well as fare and money need for your lunch. With this savings, you can help increase your family's income at the end of the day.

8. The sky is the limit.

The only limit of advantages of working from home is you. If you know a lot of ideas and you know how to make use of that idea to provide best products and services to the people, you can make a fortune out of it even if it's done at home. Continue to learn and achieve what you want to achieve.


So, there you go. The 8 Benefits of Working From Home. So, have you decided to ask your current employer if you can be allowed to work from home or you have already resigned from the corporate world and chosen to create ideas and provide people with it's products and services?
