The Highs and Lows of Working from Home

In the following article I aim to outline the major disadvantages of working from home. After reading this article you should be more aware of the dangers that threaten the success of your home business.

So you've decided to work from home, fantastic news. You imagine yourself 5 months from now on a golf course somewhere or in a bar enjoying some social drinks before returning home and discovering your business has once again expanded with very little of your own efforts brining you tonnes more money for you to spend on your leisurely pursuits and free yourself from debt forever!

Unfortunately for most people the dream of working from home becomes very quickly a nightmare for these main reasons:

1. Lack of Promotion of the business

2. Over grand expectations too quickly

3. Loss of interest

Lack of Promotion: I would say before you take the plunge and decide you want to fire your boss and work from home, first think about how much advertising and marketing knowledge you have, then ask yourself how can I increase this knowledge and roughly how long do I estimate it will take me to gain enough marketing experience to develop a stable business.

Over Grand Expectations: Dreams are wonderful and it's great to have big goals, but every big tree in the forest begins as a single seed. In other words you must start small, and once you can grasp that concept life will be a lot less stressful and frustrating for you. Before your business can expand for itself you need to be able to develop a strong organisation beneath you, before you can do that you need to of acquired the marketing knowledge, and before you even begin that you need to start developing yourself as a leader, the strength of your team and the success of your business depends on how good of a leader you are.

Loss of Interest: This is one of the major factors that will prevent your success in working from home and it follows on from the other two mentioned because if you don't know how to promote your business or develop yourself into a leader representing your company, you will not see the wealth you desire. This will make you even more frustrated and inevitably give up on the whole idea in the first place. It is hard to stay committed and focussed when working from home because our homes are a different environment to the whole office feel we are use to working in. Also there are many distractions to be found at home. The best way to stay focussed would be to make a deal with yourself to work totally and fully on your business for a certain amount of time everyday. During that time you will only involve yourself in activities that will grow your business or educate you to become better at growing your business. If you commit to just a few hours everyday without fail of doing this, over time you will begin to experience tremendous success and it won't be long before you can enjoy those late noon golfing sessions while your business works for you:)
