Top Ten Reasons I Love Working From Home

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

There are always downsides to everything--most of us know this. But while there is the odd time I think that maybe a dedicated ten-hour stretch without the interruptions of home life would enable me to accomplish so much more, really, I absolutely LOVE that I get to work from home. And here's why (in no particular order):

  1. Conducting business in my pajamas.
  2. When I put my makeup on, my husband knows it's for him, not someone at the office.
  3. When dealing with a particularly frustrating "Customer Relations" issue, I have the advantage of being able to take a few hours, cool down, and think about it before responding.
  4. Home schooling my kids.
  5. On my break, I get to go outside and enjoy my beautiful property.
  6. Conducting business at night, after my kids are in bed.
  7. "Going on vacation" does not necessarily mean I stop making money.
  8. My business is portable--not just for vacations, but for moves.
  9. It saves on gas.
  10. I get to raise our kids, not a babysitter.
Hey, all you work-from-home moms and dads--do you have some reasons unique to you why you love your "job"?

  1. 1) Not having to commute on bad roads
    2) getting laundry and bread baking done while at 'work'
    3) not having to call in sick when you're not up to snuff, but can still do some work. On the flip side, not having to deal with students/co-workers who really should have stayed home.
    4) making your own hours, and able to work around family events such as weddings and new grandchildren :)

    I enjoy reading your entries! Have a great day, Talena!

  2. Hi, Sheila! Thanks, and I TOTALLY agree with your additions. I love the part about not being exposed to every germ that comes along. We get plenty of that as it is!

    I hope you're having a great day, too!

  3. And, considering that you ARE the #1 dealer at 5 Star (most sales volume, as well as other, more personal reasons!), you do it all very well!!
    Love you!
