What’s So Great About Working from Home?

I work full time from my home. I know what is great from my end, but I know others like working from home for many

I work full time from my home. I know what is great from my end, but I know others like working from home for many other reasons.  So I asked.  Yes, I know quite a few people that work full time and part time from their homes.  People, just like you and me.  And believe it or not, more are successful, than unsuccessful.

Today I want to focus on the pros.  Why it’s kinda cool to be able to not only work from home but from anywhere!  I take my laptop to the mall.  I go to the park with my dog.   I’ve even sat at Starbucks. used their wifi, had a Latte, and check my business email, as well as answered my site comments.  I travel a lot, mainly from Indiana to Florida, and I can work anywhere in between. I’ve even worked a bit while relaxing at the beach. I could go on, but let me share why other people have told me about why they like working from their home.

  1. The list of reasons to work from home is simply great! I have that option occasionally at work right now, and really enjoy the days I can take my time getting up due to the extra time. The ONLY thing I miss is chatting with co-workers through the day. But I know not everyone enjoys chatting like I do :).

    1. Hi Christen,

      And I get you with the chatting. But all the other reasons make it for it. For me anyways. LOL

      Thanks for stopping by and come again soon,
      Laura
