Thanks to the advent of the internet, anyone (including those who do not have college degrees) can now work at home and earn decent amount of money. Depending on your skills and interest, you can start your own online business or offer freelancing services like SEO, ghostwriting, website creation, etc. Depending on the amount of time that you put in, you can potentially make $2,500 – $25,000 per month.
Here are the top reasons why you should work at home:
1. It’s cost-effective. Working at home will not require you to drive to and from an office — this will save you money on gas. This will not also require you to buy suits or office attire as you can work on your pajamas. You also don’t need to invest on make-up (for female employees) and other things to make your look presentable.
2. It saves you time. If you have a typical 9am-5pm job, I am pretty sure that you wake up around 6-7 in the morning as you need to fix yourself and do all your morning rituals before you head to work. That is not the same case when you are working at home. The moment you wake up, you can just turn on your computer and you are good to do.
3. Flexible working hours so you’ll have more time with your family. The other good thing about working at home is that you have direct control over your working hours so you can spend more time with your family. Let me give you an example; if your kids have a baseball game on weekdays, you can go ahead and attend and work during the night.
