The benefits and challenges of running a business from your home

Monday, May 6th, 2013

There are many advantages of running a business from home, and that is why it is becoming more and more popular every year.

There are of course benefits, and some challenges.  Consider the following before making the leap…

The Benefits

  1. less commuting
  2. cost savings of renting an office
  3. flexibility and freedom
  4. lack of distractions

The Challenges

  1. self discipline:  it is important to stay focussed on work tasks and not get involved in domestic chores
  2. setting boundaries to avoid constant interruptions, and avoiding working all the time
  3. isolation – you may miss the office politics, the after work drinks and the times at the water cooler
  4. sending out the wrong signal to customers if they see that I use my home address as my business address
