Working at home is the trend of the future, as more and more people eschew corporate life for a simpler and relaxed business environment. However, a business at home is not without problems. Here is a list of the top ten conflicts that you might experience while working at home:
1. Separating work and family life.
Start-up home based entrepreneurs find that the main advantage of a work-at-home business – to be near family – can be a disadvantage as well. Daily household routine can be a source of distraction for your business. Instead of answering emails, for example, you feel compelled to do the laundry.
If you have kids, then your work-at-home life becomes even more exciting. Try closing an important deal over the phone with your customer while your one-year old child cries his heart out – in your home office!
Given the fact that your two roles are under one roof – being a wife, for example, and being a businessperson – expect to experience difficulties in juggling the demands of both home and business.
2. Not enough space.
