Working From Home

Why would someone want to work from home? I do often think about the simplicity of it. 
All you have to do is wake up early, get everyone fed and dressed. Drop them off at a sitters or daycare. Drive to your employer. Drive a mad dash to get to work on time. Punch the time clock. Take your break and your lunch when you are told to. And if it's mandatory to stay after, good luck trying to get the sitter or daycare to watch your kids longer, and of course you will pay more. A well as spending less time with your kids. 

Working from home appeals to me.  It works for me. I no longer have to pay for daycare. And spend the $75.00 a week in gas like I used to. Saving me so much money! No! I am not making four grand a month. But the savings I now have is easier to work with now. My commute is all of a few easy steps right to my computer.

Getting used to a routine was not a problem for me. After all, I have been working for someone else since I was like 16-17. Waking up a certain time. Going to bed a certain time. Punching the time clock by a certain time. Taking orders, not a problem! I've been doing that for years as well. And let me say, I like the fact that I no longer take orders from someone else. I know what needs to be done and by when. I create my schedule.

Working from home is not for everyone. You do have to be a disciplined person. Learn to create a schedule. And try to be organized. But as long as your desire to be at home and earn what you are really worth is stronger than punching that time clock for someone else, then maybe I will see you at home as well.
