The best thing about working for yourself is…
One of the main things that I love about working from home is that I don’t ‘clock watch’.
I remember working in an office where looking at the clock was a regular habit. During busy periods the time did go a bit faster, but when it was quiet…it was oh, so slow.
Nowadays, although I do have to look at the clock occasionally (…my tummy is rumbling, is it an appropriate time to eat lunch?…or damn I’m going to be late to pick up the children) it tends to be to weigh up how much I can achieve in the time I have left before I leave the office, have to collect the children from school or before I have to go to bed!
There are many other reasons I love working for myself – here are a few more:
- I’m the boss (sometimes this is not a good thing)
- The flexible hours
- No worries about childcare
- I can be there for all my children’s school events without taking an afternoon off work (and feeling guilty about doing so)
- The possibility and potential
I would love to hear your views. What do you love best about working from home?
