Aren’t we all so lucky to be living in the day and age when technology has already grown so we can do pretty much everything, anywhere we may be. Gone are the days when having a job means going to the office, sitting down on a desk, dealing with a nagging boss and having a cold packed meal for lunch. A lot of jobs that can be done remotely are now available. You can be an accountant, writer, graphic artist, customer service associate, sales and marketing representative and a whole lot more and you can do everything in the comfort of your home. It truly is a great thing and we’re listing down only seven of the many advantages of having a home-based job. Read on and find out!
You are your own boss.
You might have a virtual boss who’s on Skype with you all day but if you think about it, you are still your own boss. That’s your home office right there and you can address that online “boss” as a client and not your boss. You can take in as much work as you can from different clients because this is your business and you call the shots.
You can work anywhere you like.
You can set up office in a corner at your living room, you can work in the dining area, you can have that nice little table in your bedroom or you can have a designated room in your home as your office. No, you don’t have to settle for the farthest cubicle anymore and you no longer have to wish they’d give you that large office with a door and glass window. Even better, you can be in a cruise, have your laptop with you and work with the beautiful view of the sea as a backdrop.
You can take unlimited breaks.
No one’s ever going to tell you that you’re having too many coffee or smoke breaks. You can have more than an hour break for lunch and no one will tell you you’re late. Unless of course you are closely monitored by your client, you can leave your desk anytime you wish.
Feeling sleepy? Take a shower.
No one’s going to reprimand you for falling asleep but you have to keep track of your productivity too! If you’ve gone way above the recommended daily dose of caffeine, take a shower in the middle of the day but not to warm and you’re up and alert right away! You can also take a walk in the fresh air or take a snack.
There is no dress code and you don’t have to rush getting dressed.
You can take as much time with your hair dryer because you don’t have to clock in anywhere. If you are being monitored by your boss, continue drying your hair in front of your laptop because no one will know anyway. Oomphed! will even show you the best bonnet dryers, even more easy because you can still use both hands to type! You can wear your pajamas or even your best evening gown or suit if you feel like it. There is no dress code at all.
You have time for your family.
Especially if you already have kids, your physical presence is very important. Yes, you might be working on your laptop all day long but this is so much better than not being at home and not seeing your kids!
The best thing about having a home based job is your opportunity of unlimited income. You are no longer stuck with a fixed paycheck. Take as many jobs as you can, find multiple clients and you can earn double, triple or even more than what you can ever earn in your 9 to 5.
