The opportunity to work from home: One of the greatest benefits of working for yourself. Or is it?
If you have space, setting up as a freelancer or starting a company in your own home can save you a significant amount of money on office space and purchasing additional equipment. You get to work the hours that you want, at a pace that you want.
However, there can also be drawbacks involved and there are a number of things you should consider first if you are contemplating working from home.
Work-life balance. If you’re just starting out in the world of business then for a while at least that company may become your life, the object of your attention and what you pour all your efforts into. Nevertheless, at some point, you are likely to want you social and personal life back and there is a lot to be said for the separation between the home and work environment. At the very least it can help you keep your sanity and maintain that valuable balance in life.
