You know when you first think of working at home, you might think, hmm this could really work for me and think that you don't have to work just as hard as you would out in an office setting, well that isn't the case really. Regardless of if your working in your own office setting in the comforts of your home office or if your out and in an office building, you still have to work just as hard. Just because you work at home and can be in your pajamas all day long doing the work doesn't meant that its any easier.
The benefits of course of working at home is that you can usually set your own hours which is great if you have a family and children to take care of during certain hours etc. And you do have the chance to be in a relaxing environment and the chance to hang out in your pj's all day if you choose. I love that part of the working at home.
You still have to be professional in the work that you do though, whether its on the phone being a customer service rep or if its working on the phones as a recruiter or whatever your job is. Or you might just choose to stay behind the scenes in the chat and email scenes to where you don't even have to worry about talking on the phone and taking calls etc.
I enjoy working at home in all sorts of ways. I enjoy working the phones as a customer service rep. I like helping people solve whatever issues they might have. I love working in the real estate field where I can call the banks and get information that I need to make sure that things are running smoothly in my clients files and such.
I also like writing. I haven't been writing articles or blogs too much lately, hopefully that will change soon and I can get back into the habit of writing all the time again.
If your not sure if working at home is for you, you need to weigh the options. Do you have the clothes to go out in the work force or is your clothing limited to where you might need to start working at home in order to get a nice wardrobe ready for that shot to work out in the world.
I have been working here at home for more then 6 years now and I love and appreciate it to the fullest. Its a challenge but its one that I handle well I think.
