If you run a business from home, then it’s important to recognize that it is going to mean living a completely different lifestyle from the majority of people you know.
Not having a commute in the morning, not spending all day sitting in an office and being able to generally create your own working hours puts you on an entirely different page from most people you know.
For the most part, this is a good thing. Being able to set your working hours, to dictate the way you work and when you work and getting to spend time doing something you love can all contribute to a much happier and healthier lifestyle on the whole.
At the same time, this type of lifestyle also brings with it its own challenges. Because very few people live the same lifestyle you do, that means you’re going to be somewhat on your own when it comes to finding advice on how to manage this work/life balance.
Being self employed and working from home gives you the freedom to begin your own lifestyle design. This is pretty much the way things are moving and is likely the future of working .
Technology is making it possible for us to work remotely in more and more industries and more and more roles. The benefits of this kind of work drastically outweigh the cons for both the employee and employer.
