More work-life balance. More freedom to choose when and how much you work. More earning potential based on being rewarded for the results you produce. Today, in the United States, more than 200,000 people work “virtually” from their home offices providing customer support services. While technology makes it possible, many people experience challenges in finding a successful way to operate a home-based business. Work at Home Solutions offers year-round opportunities to provide contact services to the best selection of well-known, trusted brands — giving you the freedom you crave and the income result you need. You choose which clients to serve when you work, and how many hours each week to work. Isn’t it time you redefined what career success means to you?
Less fuel and other car expenses.
According to the Telework Research Network's calculations, a typical telecommuter could save between $2,000 and $7,000 a year by working from home. Though you will still need to drive other places, since you are no longer putting the extra miles on your vehicle, you are also saving on unnecessary repairs and maintenance.
Lower child care expenses.
Although working from home you’ll still need to dedicate the same amount of time to work, you can still be the person who will drop off and pick up your children after school, take them to the doctor or even watch out after your toddler for half of the day. But most importantly, the time you spend with your children is priceless.
Save time on commuting.
The average commuting time to work is approx. 30-45 min. Multiply that by two to get back home at the end of the day, and you have spent close to 10% of your day just on transportation. Working from home makes you save all of this time. This can help you get a little bit more sleep in the morning and have more time for yourself in the evening for activities & leisure.
Save money on transportation.
If you work from home, you may not even need a car altogether. This can save you $300-400 a month plus the costly gas, parking, and insurance expenses. Simply not taking the bus or subway will save you $50-100 per month in bus tickets or passes. Arguably the biggest money saving benefit from working at home is the transportation cost savings.
Expenses are deductible.
You can deduct your internet, phone, supplies, and even the square footage that you use in your home to work. As well as anything you purchase for your home office.
More flexible schedule.
When working from home, you are not under the same discipline as office workers where you absolutely need to be working from 9 to 5 every weekday. If you have appointments you can schedule yourself around those and you do not need to take a day off from work. It’s much easier to tie in your personal schedule with your work schedule when you work from home.
Less stress and anxiety.
Just off the top of my head, I can think of at least 5 people I know that had to take extended time off from work due to stress, burnouts, and the likes. I’ve never ever heard of that from anyone working from home. An office can bring about a lot of competition, gossip, and backstabbing among co-workers. This type of environment takes its toll after a while both mentally and physically. Working from home will save you these headaches.
With all the time that you are saving from not having to commute to work, and not socializing half the day with co-workers, you end up getting a lot more done when you are working from home. As long as you remain motivated and driven, working from home is much more effective to deliver results.
Less negative influences.
Sadly, an office is riddled with a few people that take joy into bringing everyone around them down. Some people will just complain about everything and it affects the psyche of everyone around them. When working from home, you do not have to deal with these types of people. You only have to answer to yourself, and as long as you keep a positive outlook, you will have nothing to worry about.
Closer relationships with friends & family.
Obviously, if you are home more often, you will dramatically increase the chances of spending quality time with your loved ones, and at the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want? I know I would have loved for my parents to have been home more often when I was a kid, so this is a huge positive that cannot be denied. Working from home allows you to have such freedom which you just cannot put a price tag on.
