Working At Home...The Real Benefits
By: Tammy Embrich

Are you finding yourself in a dead-end outside job? Are you spending more hours than you desire away from your home and family just to pay the bills?

There is a better way…

You really can earn an income from the comfort of your home. All you need is a little belief in yourself, a computer, and an internet connection.

There are many options to explore for earning an income on the internet, but that’s a whole other article.

For now…let’s explore the “benefits” of working from your home office…

Save Money On Fuel
One of the most important, obvious benefits is you would be saving a large chunk of your hard-earned dollars on fuel. Fuel prices are steadily rising. When you figure in the amount spent on fuel commuting back and forth to work, the savings is considerable.

Save Money On Daycare/Babysitter
If you have babies or toddlers, working from your home will save you on the ever-rising cost of daycare or a babysitter. If you have a large family, then you know how expensive this can be.

Flexible Schedule
Another huge benefit of being able to stay at home and work is you would instantly have a flexible schedule. You would have no boss constantly hovering over you, and you would be able to come and go as you pleased.

Stay Home With Your Children
The most important benefit of all is having the advantage of being at home for your children. This is the main reason for having the desire to work at home. Or, it should be anyway. If you have school-age children, you would also be there for them when they return home from school. This would also result in better quality time spent assisting with homework.

Save Money On Clothing/Uniforms
If you worked from home, you would avoid the cost of any special clothing…such as uniforms. There are many occupations that require you to wear a special uniform. You would have the option of staying in your pajamas all day if you desired, or just comfortable clothing in general.

Save Money On Parking
A lot of places of employment require parking fees. That fee amount adds up fast everyday when figuring it up on a weekly or monthly basis. If you worked from home, your car would be safely parked in your garage or in front of your home.

No Commute/Traffic
Having the advantage of working from your home would relieve you from the daily commute of traffic driving back and forth to work. If you simply hate sitting in rush-hour traffic, then this particular benefit would be high up on your list.

Save Money On Lunches
When you work outside the home, you tend to spend more money on lunches. Think about it…for Example: A group of employees going out for lunch, or…ordering take out. If you worked at home, you would be more inclined to eat whatever is available at home.

Save Wear And Tear On Your Car
You would avoid a considerable amount of wear and tear on your vehicle if you were to stay at home and work. Consider the miles you drive everyday and the wear and tear on those tires. Daily commute would also result in more routine maintenance.

Be Your Own Boss
And last but certainly not least…you would be your own boss. You would have more control of how much income you would make. You would also be able to take as many days off as you desired. If you miss a day of work, you would have the option of making that time up at your convenience.

There you have it…the 10 key benefits of working from your home office and examples of dollars saved from doing it.

So, if you work outside the home…One question you may need to ask yourself. “How much am I REALLY EARNING from an outside job?” Just once, try figuring up all these expenses that go along with working outside the home. You probably would be shocked at the figures you come up with.

Companies also highly benefit financially by hiring telecommuters. There would be a considerable amount of reduction of office rental and real estate expenses…not to mention the cost of maintenance for computers and software.

The telecommuting field has proven to be extremely competitive as more and more individuals find that working from the comfort of their homes is really a possibility.
