Work at home is the dream of a lot of people and being honest I understand that. But sometimes people think all is perfect and the real world is not so marvellous.

  1. You work when you want

Yeah… kind of, but unless you are very well established and you have very high profit margin the truth is that you will work every time you have work to do. There is a little true in that statement and it is that your timetable is more flexible, but there will be a lot of times than your clients give you so close deadlines that you will work no matter if you want or not.

2. You don’t have fixed costs

Ok, you don’t have to pay an office, but you have to pay a good internet connection, the taxes that your country states for the activity and many other things that you would not  Maybe a software you need to work, maybe a mobile device to keep contact with your clients…

Work from home allows you to save some money, but every entrepreneur asks for an investment.

3. Zero stress

Stress doesn’t depend on if you work at home or in an office, but in the nature of the job you do. If you are a stock trader doing risky investments you will be stressed in your sofa or in the most beautiful beach.
