Working in your pajamas, not having to deal with the awful traffic during your commute to work, and not having to engage in work gossip are all well-known major benefits of working from home. The awesome thing about those benefits is that they’re actually true… not just some imaginary standard!
The thing about being a work-from-home parent is that it comes in two forms, for the most part. How? Well, you’re either working remotely for a company and following their business standards or you’re working for yourself and following your own business standards.
In running your own business, you’re, of course, going to follow typical business standards like making sure your business is registered and getting business insurance to give your clients peace of mind in knowing they’re protected in case something goes wrong.
Whereas working remotely, those things are already taken care of… you are just pretty much doing the same thing you would do in the office, you’re just not physically in the office… the common denominator in both work scenarios is the freedom you have.
Again, being a work-from-home parent comes with freedoms like the common working in your pajamas and dodging the morning traffic but there are also freedoms you may not even realize you have, and this applies to whether you work remotely or work for yourself. Your whole view of work can be changed in an instant as a work-from-home parent. Take a look at some of the biggest freedoms that work from home parents experience.
1. Your Office Can Be Anywhere You Want It to Be
For Remote Workers and Entrepreneurs
Just because you have the title of “work-from-home” parent doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to work from home. That’s something that parents tend to forget sometimes; they’re so used to working from home that they don’t even realize they don’t have to place their work in a box… you have the freedom to carry your office with you wherever you want!
