Shattered! Five Work-from-home

UnCategorized So you’re probably considering whether you should work from home and whether it’s for you. You may have also heard a lot of .ments from friends about what it’s like to work from home. You hear the weirdest things about working from home. Some of it you really wonder about. Let’s explore some of the myths that you hear out there regarding working at home. 1. You’ll Be in Total Isolation Yes, working from home can be very difficult to get used to at first. But there are a few steps that you can take. Are you looking at a tele.muting job? Tele.muting is like a regular job but you do it from home. Make sure that you schedule regular meetings with your fellow workers and clients. Also ensure the technology on your .puter is up to date. If you have a video cam it will make you feel a little less isolated. There are also user groups designed for people who work from home. Don’t forget when you work at home you also have the flexibility to take your office on the road to a coffee shop or to a local library (as long as you can find Internet connection). 2. You Can’t Make Much Money This definitely is not true. Often times, tele.muters make exactly the same amount of money as people who work in regular offices. Also if you have your own business you have the potential to out earn people with regular 9-5 jobs. It all depends on what you’re doing. Don’t forget to look into tax write-offs. Usually, you’re able to write off your office space in your home. Check with your accountant for other deductions. 3. You Need Office Space to be Professional Definitely not true! For most jobs, people will never see your home office. And these days even if you have to bring clients to your home, it is so .mon place that people don’t mind visiting a home office. One of the greatest cultural changes is the emergence of coffee shops for people to hold meetings. You can use these coffee shops as your meeting room. 4. You Can Vacation When You Want This is somewhat of a myth because yes, you can go on vacation, but you really have to plan your budget to make sure that you can afford a vacation. It’s important you take into account any changes in in.e due to how regularly money is paid to you. 5. People at Home Don’t Work Hard This is the biggest lie created by the people working 9-to-5 jobs. They are probably jealous that you don’t have to travel back and forth to work every day. On average, people working from home usually work longer hours than people that work in a regular office. This makes sense because it’s easy to write just one more email, or another report when you are steps away from your .puter. In summary, most of the things you hear from friends only have a hint of truth. With careful planning you can be productive and happy when you work at home. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
