I’m always surprised when people tell me they wouldn’t be interested in working at home. Who wouldn’t want the freedom and flexibility working from home brings? However, I’m not surprised that there are people out there who don’t succeed at home. The truth is, not everyone is cut out to work at home. With freedom and flexibility comes personal responsibility and accountability. Some people have a difficult time working without rigid boundaries.
Over at About.com, I posted an article, Are You Cut Out to Be a Home Business Owner. While the article talks about home business, the information can fit just as well with telecommuters and freelancers.
If you’re not sure that you have what it take to work at home, check out the article to learn what you need to be successful.
