On the previous page, "What
Are Your Benefits?", we mentioned that without a reason
to work from home, there wouldn't be motivation to "step out
of the box" and obtain the benefits of working from home.
On this page, we
discuss the disadvantages. However, the actual disadvantages only
occur if challenges are not overcome.
always come along, no matter your pursuit. Have you heard
the people at work complain that they can't advance their career
because of this or that? Are they disadvantaged, or are they
unable to overcome an obstacle?
In compiling a list
of disadvantages, which I'll let you do pretty much on your own,
substitute "disadvantages" with "challenges I'm
unwilling to overcome". But, wait, before you start that
list, go back and decide what
your benefits are, or should I say, your reasons. Then, decide
what you won't do. Because really, your only disadvantage is what
will happen to your effort level if your "Benefits/Reasons"
list is not long enough, or if the benefits are not important
To help you get
started, let me give you some examples of disadvantages, or
enough capital to start a business or savings to pay bills before
income is received
have the discipline to put in a hard day's work if working from
of experience, have
never been self-employed
making a great deal of money working (for someone else), can't
afford to quit job
run a successful business (self-employed) outside of the home
all work from home opportunities are hype, and that teleworking
jobs are all bogus
that upper-crust, arrogant, and self-anointed to run your life
from cradle to grave royalty will lose the ability to control
all those self-reliant risk-taking hard-working home workers or
small business owners.
