The Downside to Working from Home?
Share this Article:

Okay, you’re looking into buying a home-based business opportunity or starting some other work-at-home business of your own, and we’re sure you’ve already thought and read about all of the great benefits of pursuing this option, right? The good news on that front? There are many.

However, it’s just as important to recognize the potential pitfalls, the downside so to speak? That’s right, the downside. After all, nothing is ever all sunshine and roses, not in the world of work anyway. That’s precisely why we call it work and not playtime.

While working from home does come with its share of perks, no question, it’s tough to be successful if you haven’t planned for how you’re going to manage the inevitable lows that accompany the highs, if you get the gist.

That said, a new infographic from PayScale offers a glimpse into the issue of work-at-home dissatisfaction, here in the U.S. and around the world. Among home-based small business owners’ greatest concerns? Difficulty concentrating, interruptions, lack of access to technology and even the toll that not working in a proper office environment can take on the body.

The number one concern? And something you need to think about and plan for before you decide that working out of a home office is right for you—managing the needs of your children and other family members. This is a biggie, and while it can be done, doing it well may require careful planning and setting clear expectations in advance.

Sounds like just another day at the office for any smart small business entrepreneur…
