So, Now You Have A Home Based Business - What's Next
Setting up a home business office is slightly different than telecommuting for an employer. Many times employers will provide assistance with ensuring your equipment and 'environment' are set up to be productive as well as ergonomically correct. As a small business owner you are now responsible for all of this.
But before we discuss the placement of equipment, I'd like to point out a few other factors for your consideration while you embark on your new journey. Here are some of the 'Pros' of working from home and some 'atta boys' for you taking the plunge!
o As your home based business grows you can recruit talent from anywhere - they can work from home, too
o Working from home can provide more of a work/life balance because of reduced commuting time
o Statistics reflect a decrease in illnesses of approximately 2 days per year - less exposure to others who are ill
o Ability to accommodate emergency child care or elder care situations (if necessary)
o Statistics point to increased productivity due to limited work distractions, no commute, plus an increased motivation and commitment since it's 'your business'
o Because you have virtually no commute, you're doing your part to save resources, and reduce pollution, not to mention saving money
o A home business opportunity allows mobility-impaired individuals the freedom to become successful entrepreneurs
o Baby Boomers who are wanting to have flexible schedules for hobbies and travel can still generate substantial income with the various opportunities available to them as a home business owner
o You may experience less stress due to the increased flexibility you have over your own work schedule
