The Reality of Shifting Work Environments and the Benefits of Working From Home
Updated: Jul 26, 2019
Blogging can seem like a downright chore sometimes, with no real income for months when you are starting out. It can be difficult to transition from blogging as a hobby to blogging as a full-time job. But if you want to find other ways to make money online and feel like you are working a "real job," there are tons of companies all over the world, including giants like Amazon who are constantly hiring remote workers, meaning you can work from your home office. Working from home is about so much more than blogging and affiliate marketing.
There are so many benefits for workers and employers when people can work from home, therefore, no wonder many tech companies and start-ups are choosing to hire remote workers. Imagine that you can make over $50,000 by working from home, without commuting, and without going to the dreaded office cubicle.
Here are the top 3 benefits of working from home:
1) WORK FROM ANYWHERE
You can work from anywhere, meaning you have autonomy. You can sit in bed with your laptop, work from the library or work while traveling. You don't have to dress up in office wear (unless you're in a video conference). And the best part is - no commute. You are going to be saving lots of time and money by cutting down the commute. Setting up a home office is relatively easy and you can emulate an office environment in your home.
2) CONTROL OVER WORK SPACE
You will have control over the work environment and work space. Choosing the location of your desk, adjusting the lighting, controlling the temperature and playing your choice of music can boost productivity. You can decorate your desk, your room to your heart's content. You can also avoid the hustle and bustle of busy offices and focus more.
3) TIME MANAGEMENT
Flexibility is extremely important for workers. If you can create your own schedule and manage your workday your own way, it will make you feel more satisfied. You can plan according to your needs which is especially beneficial if you are a stay at home parent, for example. You can be more time efficient and work at your own pace.
