Working from home mums … it sounds ideal and seems to be the best decision when a mum wants to stay independent and see how her children grow. But just like everything else, working from home has both its advantages and disadvantages. Here they are:
- freedom and flexibility
You are welcome to tail your day according to your needs, whether you want to spend time with the kids, or simply work.
- tax benefits
When you work from home you can work tax free.
Work from home is less stressful because you don’t have a boss, there is no need to get up early and correspond to any dress-code or company rules.
You can spend a lot of time with your family.
You can easily save money on clothes and patrol.
When you have children and they come home from school they will like to spend some time with you but you can be more productive around that time.
When you work freelance there is no constant flow of money.
- social contacts
Be ready to the absence of the social interaction. I am ready to bet you will be cut off from the rest of the world.
It will be really difficult to motivate yourself when you’re working from home.
Despite all the disadvantages working from home is still a perfect way out when you have small children and would like to devote most of your time to them! Find more information at WorkingMums.co.uk.
