Why work from home is a little bit of a tricky question. To some of you I’m probably stating the obvious here but for others maybe not. Working from home can sometimes be tougher than a regular job. The hours are longer. If you’re working in an online business as I am you have to learn a ton of information and be able to comprehend it all. The pay is lousy in the beginning. You have to sit at a computer all day long with a good chance of getting carpel tunnel syndrome from all the excessive typing and to top it all off there are ridiculously high levels of competition.
So why do I do it you ask? Because I get to watch my younger children grow up. I get to take them to the bus stop in the morning and be able to meet them at the bus stop in the afternoon. Because the pay gets better and better as you learn and make adjustments. I do it because nobody gets to tell me what to do anymore. I no longer have to get up at 5 am, rush through breakfast and fight traffic to go to a job I never liked to begin with only to get home at 7 pm so tired that I can’t even muster up a smile for my little ones. Not anymore! Now days I get up at 7 am because I choose to, not because I have to.
I do it for the tax breaks and the satisfaction of knowing that I’m building something that will support my family forever and create a better life for them. I work from home because it is the way it was done hundreds of years ago when the fast lane didn’t exist and a family was a real family. I do it because I no longer have to worry about losing my job to somebody more qualified or because of the current economical recession. My business isn’t affected by the recession.
I do it because I get to help others. I now have the ability and the outlet to show other people how to drastically improve their own lives and the lives of their family members. I work from home because the country I live in allows me to. I do it because I have bigger plans down the road. I want to retire early not when I’m in my 50’s or like some elderly folks who had to work well into their 60’s. I work from home because I want to be remembered instead of forgotten. I want to leave my mark.
I do it because I want to have the freedom and the time to spend with my parents before they leave this great world of ours. I want them to be proud of me and know that I did well! Having my own online business helps me to do all these things. My only regret is that I didn’t see the light earlier.
I work from home because you only get to live life once and I want to live it to the fullest! I could probably go on all day and night with reasons but I think you understand. The great part about it is that you can do it too if you want it bad enough. Start doing it on the side and work your way to full time.
