Working from Home-Corporation

Working from home is great! It’s even better when you can do it for a “traditional” employer. I recently took a new position that allows me to work from home at least one day a week, sometimes more. It has been a wonderful addition to my career for so many reasons.

Reasons I love working from home now:

  1. More flexibility
  2. I can stay in my PJs all day long
  3. I get more done
  4. My boss actually trusts me!

To give you all an idea of how this all fits into this blog, I’m literally working in my jammies for a company that I really enjoy and feel valued at. My boss trusts me to get things done while I’m home and I haven’t disappointed him. I just hope I can continue to do that.

Something that I want to touch on, just a bit is what it’s like to not have people to talk to when you’re working from home. I will talk about this more in a future post but after working from home for a bit, I think I can convey how I feel. To be completely honest, I miss the interaction with others that I get in the office. I am a social person so for me, it’s important to have that interaction as much as possible. As much as I love sitting here in my jammies, it’s important that I keep my work relationships and social activity intact. Some may struggle with this.

To finish up this post, I just want to say that I love working my traditional job from home. Does that mean I want to do it forever? Probably not. When I look at what I can accomplish at home, it makes me excited to know that I can do this, eventually. When looking at the big picture, it’s clear to me that I’m capable of and do enjoy working from home.¬†
