Working at home is not any different, therefore you should really seriously consider the disadvantages that accompany working from home and all that is involved with the lifestyle.
First, consider whether or not you are really ready for the work at home lifestyle that you are considering. Without all of the romance, the lofty ideas and the pluses that can be misconstrued as generalities, let’s look at some very real considerations that you should focus on before you get started in this.
Do you have the patience and wherewithal that it will take for you to make a go of your business or work at home job until it is self-sustaining?
Do you have the funds and support that you need in order to wait until your income is enough to support you and your family?
Without regards to the perks, consider the time that it will take for you to ramp up your business to create a decent income.
Depending on the type of business that your pursue or the type of company that you go to work for, you may in for a lengthy and/or involved process to get things to where they need to be in order for you to see some progress in that area.
How much of an income do you need to generate in order to live? Sit down and accurately figure out what you need to make on a weekly and/or monthly business before you are ready to embark on a new business idea or venture.
Be realistic in your expectation level and with your expenses. Are you ready to withstand the lean times that will come while you are working towards building that income?
Having a steady income with a traditional job is a definite level of comfort for some individuals. It can be quite unnerving to think that you are responsible for your income, whether you’re good at what you do or not. The stability of a guaranteed paycheck from a regular job can quickly become a preference over making the lifestyle of a work at home entrepreneur.
