Working from home

I've been working from home for almost two years and simply love it. I cannot imagine going to work for a 9-5 job, just the thought gives me claustrophobia. I took 72 days off for personal travel last year since I work flexitimes and on a project basis, and there's no way any regular company would be OK with that. There's a great article on working at home, making adjustments, getting organized etc in Forbes, with tips and tools on dealing with the ups and downs of working at home. I definitely took some time to organize myself into being productive (and yes, there's plenty of room for improvement as yet) and now that I have got into the groove, my work has become satisfying and really a lot of fun. The ironic part is that I work much, much longer hours now since I enjoy what I do, which is where I need to disciple myself.

I love working from home too. I did skin care at a spa, but got sidelined for awhile when I got ill in 2005. I got healthy, but never looked back...I just love being home writing.

I completely agree and wonder why I didn't get started earlier!
