With more people having access to technology than ever before, it’s become easy to work from anywhere and market products and services to global audiences at a very low cost.
This, together with a failing economy, has left a lot of people with money worries and feelings of insecurity and has also created a strong desire in many people to take control of their future by starting a side-hustle from home.
Here are some reasons to consider starting a business from home:
CONTROL OVER YOUR SCHEDULE
Being in charge of your day is one of the biggest benefits of working from home. You can set and customize your work hours to meet the needs of your life.
Conversely, this freedom can also bring with it distracting temptations and the risk of procrastinating on work-related tasks. You’ll want to make sure you have the right entrepreneurial traits and a good daily organizational plan to handle this new responsibility, coupled with a conducive working environment.
Working outside the home not only takes a lot of time but also chunks up a large part of your income in terms of job-related transport expenses. Cutting down on daily transport would put some of that money back in your pocket.
CONTROL OVER YOUR WORK ATTIRE
No more suits and ties, No more corporate wears. You can wear whatever you want. If you’re most comfortable and inspired in your club jersey, you can wear it every day if you want.
A home business is ideal for someone who doesn’t like to be told what to do. You can do the work in the way you feel is best. Also, if you are working at home, you don’t need to get to be queried for being late. There’s no having to ask for time off. There’s no one looking over your shoulder to make sure you’re working.
